L.A. based Weird Al Yankovic brought banjos and accordions to the ACL Live stage last night, making up for a missed appearance at last years Fun Fun Fun Fest.
The audience was full of kids of all ages, regardless of actual age, and included long time Austin guitarist Eric Johnson, who watched on while Weird Al wheeled and reeled through a succession of his MTV hits at a frenetic pace.
Erasure. the English synthpop duo, consisting of songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke and singer Andy Bell, made a long- long awaited, anticipated, and overdue, return to Austin, playing to a sold out audience at ACL Live at the Moody Theater on an elaborate stage that included gargoyles and steel cages.
I don't usually cover D.J.s but deadmau5 isn't really your ordinary D.J. and his shows are more than just a rave or dance party . His stop last night at the Austin Music Hall was no exception.
With a light show that would make Pink Floyd envious, a list of guest D.J.s that included Motley Crues Tommy Lee, and a walk on vocal performance by Sofi the show was more like a full blown concert event than a rave. deadmaus5 is partying again tonight at the Music Hall but this show is sold out.
