Big Broadcast: Festivus For The Rest Of Us

Posted by on May 9, 2013

This year’s ACL festival lineup is out, and at least one major national music blog is calling it the best major festival of the year.  We’ll explore this year’s rundown with Peter Mongillo of the Austin American-Statesman.  Also: the national spotlight falls on Austin’s Walker Lukens–we’ll meet him.  Plus, in celebration of Pachanga Fest, we visit a hidden venue where conjunto music thrives year round. Kevin “Shinyribs” Russell on a favorite Austin music moment, new tracks by Dallas’ Polyphonic Spree, former Austinite Eleanor Friedberger, and lots more.  Hope you can join us for Texas Music Matters–Friday at noon and Friday night at 11 on KUTX 98-9, and Saturday morning at 11 on KUT 90.5.
