Austin City Limits Festival, day 2

Day 2, hot as h*ll. But hey, it's Texas and I don't mind. :-)

So, we saw:
Old 97's
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
Robert Earl Keen
Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band
The Black Keys
Iron & Wine (just a song or 2 - way too mellow)

Best of the day - Old 97s, absolutely.... Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings were also great. Interesting note - she used to be in music back in the 70s, but left the business, and while away from singing, she used to be a corrections officer at Rikers Island, and there were moments when looking at her face, you KNOW she didn't take any crap from anyone. :-)

After Festival, we went to dinner at El Sol y La Luna. Yes, same place I went to brekkie on Friday. Also same place I went for late lunch/early dinner on Thursday when I flew into town. Food is great, and they serve a nice cold Shiner Bock.
