Austin City Limits Music Festival 2019

So people almost died at Lizzo.  They should move her to a different stage or something.  Miller Lite being right up against Honda is not ok for a crowd that big.

Yeah I haven’t seen a crush that big since they moved that stage that used to back up to Rock Island...I noped out of there, that triangle of the Honda stage, Miller Lite stage and the bar was just a solid mass.  Felt like 75% of the park was there at once.

Ya, I was chilling in the bar since my cousin, who flew in for the fest, tweaked her ankle leaving Saturday.

It (Lizzo) was the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen at any stage...but seriously the wrong stage for someone with the #1 hit song in the U.S.

Still, it was a great show and I could see her from where I was standing in the bar.

Cardi B was really good too...but being thirty minutes late is plain rude and shouldn’t be allowed.

That's basically on time for a rapper.

Don’t disagree when it’s their show only. However, ACL has done a really good job getting acts to start and stop on time enabling crowds to move from show to show. Something held this one up as I haven’t seen this late a start ever at an ACL I’ve attended. And that includes a lot of rappers and other artists.

This was right as Lizzo was starting, taken from the beer hall steps. You cannot even see the Miller Light stage and it was edge to edge. I thought Billie Eillish was a press but this was unreal.

I don't want to go to this thing anymore.  I think I'll go to Bruce Hornsby and GRIZ and stay on the other side of the park.

I left on Sunday right before Banks and glad I did.  I had fun, but my liver did not.  Took most of the day off from work to recover.

what a bunch of dumbshits:

“Officer Glass observed Nathan and Cameron using small, green, plastic straws to defeat the clip on the wristband, so they could be loosened and reapplied to other persons,” notes the affidavit.

After the undercover officer got in and traded his wristband back for his cell phone, uniformed officers detained Cameron as well as a group of other customers the officer had entered with. Martin and Nathan Beck were soon spotted at the gate and arrested. The latter’s wallet allegedly held $1,108 at the time of the arrest, including $100 of marked money. Cameron Beck possessed $926.

All three men had on them green plastic straws. “Officer Glass” then called the number from the Craigslist ad and Beck’s phone began to ring, according to the affidavit. An employee of festival organizers C3 Presents provided APD with documentation of the activity of each of the confiscated wristbands. Among the six wristbands in possession, they’d collectively been through the entrance gates a total of 104 times.

Sprinklers were on full blast yesterday on my way home through the park.  I think between that and rain Friday morning: should be good to go.

Can’t recall if it’s been mentioned but very very carefully guard your phone.  Friend of ours got theirs stolen out of a zipped purse and it’s happening at a higher rate lately.

Another PSA on that is the thief’s org will send an email to the iCloud account holder stating it’s from Apple and they’ve located your phone...just login at this address to get the location.  They’ll the use your password to unlock the phone (from stolen mode) to be able to sell it.  

Ive traveled abroad too much, in places like Bangalore and Manila, to ever keep anything in my back pocket.  If you’re in a big crowd, keep a hand on that pocket.

Real Feel looks to be in the mid 50's.  Saturday will have real feel around 70.  Gonna be great.  Outdoor activities in this type of weather is quite pleasant, some would even say "Outdoorsy".

IIRC, humidity carries sound really well. I could hear it last weekend north of 2222.

Same here. I’m just south of 2222, and after I bailed early on Sunday I could hear the headliners.

Loved that they had Electric Jellyfish in the Beer tent this year. I thought the set up for Lizzo last night worked well, she really put on a fun show.  As bad as he looks, Robert Smith and the Cure sounded great.

Lizzo was a really great show. Damn if all the kids around us didn't know all the words to the songs and start crying

And she's done for shoulderblade fat what ACL did for underbutt.
