Music: Austin City Limits Festival 

The ACL organizers released this year's schedule today.

With so many good bands playing, I forsee a lot of walking that weekend, in order to cover the entire Zilker Park set-up. Here's my initial plan (must-see's in bold), subject to change based on fatigue, friends' interests and the proximity of the nearest beer tent:

1-2:00 Asleep at the Wheel
2-2:30 Dale Watson
3-4:00 Blind Boys of Alabama
7-8:00 Ryan Adams
8-8:45 Franz Ferdinand

2-3:00 Josh Rouse
3-4:00 Old 97's
4-5:00 The Gourds
5-6:00 Modest Mouse
6-7:00 My Morning Jacket
7-8:00 Dashboard Confessional
8-8:45 Reckless Kelly
9-9:45 The Pixies

3:30-4:30 Ben Kweller
4:30-5:30 TBA
5:30-6:30 Drive-By Truckers

I didn't make it down there on Sunday a year ago. We'll see what happens this time. I really want to see Ben Kweller, and the Truckers might have been my favorite set last year.
