ACL 2014 – Outkast vs Beck Breakdown

Posted by teibs On October - 12 - 2014

@ZackTeibloom Let’s get one thing out of the way right now. When it comes down to Outkast vs. Beck, the only acceptable answer is both. When ACL booked these two wildly inventive, world-class performers in the same time slot, it became mandatory to go to Friday night of both weekends and see each headliner. So that’s what we did. We started with Outkast weekend one and were floored by Andre 3000 and Big Boi’s unmatched give and take, their playfulness and the supreme highs of the show. The biggest hits (“Hey Ya,” “Ms. Jackson” and “Roses”) were, to put it in Outkast speak, “SpottieOttieDopalicious” and as much fun as one could have at any festival show. We had such a blast that Caitlin couldn’t fathom not doing it again the next week, but having seen Beck four times, I knew we wouldn’t forgive ourselves if he played four times in Austin this year and we missed all four. So did we make the right move? Was Beck just as good, if not better than Outkast? Let’s break it down by opening song, banter, hits, deep cuts, stage presence, band introductions and closing number and come to a conclusion. Read the rest of this entry »

How to do ACL for $100

Posted by teibs On October - 6 - 2014

@ZackTeibloom It felt all too familiar. Back at Zilker Park for ACL without a wristband. As Andy and I like to say when coming  festival-ing, “We’ve done this before.” In 2008, Andy and I made our first trip to Austin for ACL because we had press passes. With a little help from my friends, I crashed in 2009, tried to sneak a friend in, lost my wristband and had to crash again. I crashed not once, but twice in 2010. I got caught in 2011. I bought a pass for under face value in 2012 and 2013. The only plan I had for this year was that I wanted to be there all day Friday and as soon as I could get there Sunday, after working 6-3, taking care of Scooby and biking over. I wasn’t filled with the typical “can’t-sleep-I’m-so-excited” festival hype I used to get every year, but I had to see Outkast, was over-due to see Chromeo again, was excited to hear the new Spoon album live, was curious about Chvrches, Sam Smith, Jenny Lewis and Bleachers and would be happy to catch some Pearl Jam. That’s more than enough to get me back to Zilker without a wristband. I’ll reveal how I did the fest so cheap and what I think each show was worth. Read the rest of this entry »
