ACL Fest Aftershows announced

Every year during ACL fest a few of the bands playing the festival decide to get together and schedule some one off shows around town. These ACL "aftershows" have been a highlight of the festival weekend to me. In past years I've seen such great shows as Built to Spill playing with The Decemberists at La Zona Rosa and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness opening for Explosions In The Sky and Modest Mouse at Stubbs. Both shows were amazing experiences and a lot of fun. The list of this year's official aftershows has a few that sound really great. Here's the list.


  • Rodrigo y Gabriela @ Antone's (10:30pm)
  • Blonde Redhead and The National @ Emo's (9:30pm)
  • Queens of the Stone Age and Dax Riggs @ La Zona Rosa (10pm)
  • Heartless Bastards and White Denim @ The Parish (11pm)
The Blonde Redhead/The National show is the one that catches my eye immediately. Of course The White Stripes/Cold War Kids, Queens of the Stone Age, and Spoon/Sound Team shows will all probably sell out really quickly, justifiably, so I'd jump on the tickets when they go on sale at Frontgatetickets this Saturday (July 28th).
