Here we are at day 2 of ACL Fest 2015, and your humble Austin Music Minute maven is sending a few more fest selections your way. Looks like the AMM has Father John Misty, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jose Gonzalez, Alabama Shakes (featured on today’s AMM), and TV On the Radio on the short list of must-see’s out at the festival today. Tonight, there’s an official late night show starring Alt-J at Austin Music Hall, 208 Nueces St.
If you’re in the mood for splendid alternatives, Raw Paw‘s Ditch the Fest Fest kicks off today at Empire Control Room, 606 E. 7th St., featuring sets by AMM faves Hikes, Good Talk, Sip Sip, Chipper Jones, Mobley, and countless others. And the Austin Corn Lover’s Fiesta continues tonight at The White Horse, 500 Comal, with Davie Allan & The Arrows, The Beaumonts, the Hickoids, Rosie Flores, and New Mystery Girl.
