Austin usually gets all the credit, however htown continues to attract a bevy of brilliant acts eg., cults 11/13/17, ghostland observatory 12/30/17, brmc 01/20/18, sleigh bells 02/07/2018, david byrne at WOMH last night. To see him in particular was really sentimental, considering talking heads was among the first few bands I heard and fell in love with as a kid. David Byrne doesn’t seem to lose an ounce of creativity or relevance as the years go by; a remarkable talent to say the least.








This guy’s a genius, can’t get enough


Well days two and three didn’t dissapoint by any means, although the attendant dust didn’t make for easy breathing. But then APF is the wrong place to be if you care at all about cardiovascular health. Judging by several of my fellow attendees, I’m very much in the pink, in that regard. Highlights included Joel Gion’s backing band primary colors, although he himself was delightfully out to lunch, no guesses as to why. But optimistic for a great album in the summer. We managed to snag a hammock this year, perched betwixt the main and amphitheatre stage, which made for an interesting aural experience. Really dug the horrors, that was a special treat. I also appreciate just how few people try to wedge themselves within the inch between you and whoever’s in front of you, proceeding to film everything on a phone directly in your line of vision. Seriously. Great crowd, tunes, food and amazing experience over all; definitely back next year! Bonus: making some new friends at the ginger man downtown and eating at rudy’s and saltlick in quick succession; really made us feel at home in Tx, which is just as well since we move there next month!
