All eyes turn to Austin, Texas as the 2012 ACL Music Festival returns to
Zilker Park October 12th - 14th! 75,000 plus music lovers will converge,
on what is widely accepted as the one of the premier music festivals in
the world, to experience more than a hundred bands on eight stages over
three days. Historically, ACLMF has offered a diverse range of musical
fare from chart-toppers to Avant-garde, local heroes to world icons,
internet sensations to full-fledged rock royalty. This year is no
exception, featuring The Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and
Crazy Horse, Florence + The Machine, The Shins, Iggy & The Stooges, Gotye,
Weezer, and many, many more.

Old 97's are back.
Not that they ever really left. This alt-country band from Dallas did release a new album only last year, but these guys are going back to the good ole days with a re-release of one of their most successful albums as well as a new tour.
In order to celebrate the 15th birthday of their hit album, Too Far to Care, the Old 97's released a special re-issue yesterday with more songs and demos that didn't make it on to the original one in 1997. And, as a bonus, they're going on a tour this fall starting with their performance at ACL this Sunday.
Even if you're not an Old 97's fan or if you've never even heard of them before, they are a great act to check out at ACL. The band is known for their amazing and energetic live performances. If you've been to Blues on the Green or other KGSR events, you may recognize Rhett Miller as the frontman for the Old 97's.
You can listen to "Holy Cross" here, one of the old-but-new-to-us songs from the re-issue, and you can also get a little taste of what it would be like to see them live below.
Who: Old 97's
When: Sunday, Oct. 14 at 6:15 p.m.
