not gonna lie – i’ve been progressively more and more disappointed with the ACL lineups ever year since I went 2 years ago. maybe i’m a little biased since I had such a blast in ’07… but after reading through the bill for ’09, i didn’t consider attending for more than about a second.

Yea I was gonna consider going since SXSW was such a blast and Austin is awesome, but the headliners are pretty meh for me. Lots of great bands on the undercard, but prob not gonna go.

You guys saw that Dave Matthews is playing, right?

Comment by Kenny

Dave Matthews playing is a negative, Kenny. Also, Martin Starr made “Freaks and Geeks” for me…so freakin’ hilarious.

Dave Matthews playing at ACL is like my dad walking in on me masturbating.
