The Last Dirty Hippie Outdoor Festival Of The Year Starts Friday

Dude, music festivals will totally come to an end for 2008 after this weekend’s Austin City Limits festival in Austin, TX. There are so many bands there I would love to see but I refuse to fight the heat, the dirt, and the hippie. My metrosexuality requires air conditioning, toothbrushes, and a daily shower. I also have tickets to see The Swell Season and Fleet Foxes, both of which are in the next five days so that will make up for missing the sweatfest.

I will be watching the AT&T Blue Room for the handful of cool performances that will be streamed live online. Here is the schedule:
