The Cool Kids

I grabbed an interview with The Cool Kids while they were on a quick trip to Austin. These guys are cool and a lot of fun to talk to. My face on my mic tripped them out, we talk about their current EP Bake Sale and they're future full length When Fish Ride Bicycles, dealing with a misbehaving fan, how they met each other, and what it is they do. They're the coolest kids I know...

Delta Spirit

Ode to Sunshine by Delta Spirit is one of my favorite albums of 2008. I tracked down Matt and Kelly during ACL. It turns out that Matt, lead singer, is from around Austin which was much to my surprise. He describes his acid riddled journey from High School to Southern California where he met the members of Delta Spirit. We also join hands and honor Jack in the Box as well as talk about the Spirit's future. And it's a bright one!

G. Love

G. Love was my first interview at Stubb's BBQ back in March. We talk about how weird it's been since we last saw each other, my broken heart and his condolences. Lil Wayne just played G's signature guitar on an episode of ACL and sure enough he breaks into a little rap showing his love.

Jamie Lidell

I was really happy to catchup with Jamie Lidell at ACL. He talks about his love for Austin and the sweat that comes with it. His mutation from a nerd to his soulful sound, his European tour opening for Elton John and the fact that I look like Jack Black and The Joker.

Austin City Limits

I've emerged from the ACL fog, it was quite blinding there for awhile. My birthday was the following Monday 9/29 and Cut Copy happened to be playing at Emo's. No rest for the weary, I went and saw The Foo Fighters do an ACL taping then ran to Emo's. The show was great, these Aussies got it going on and they're really nice dudes.

More to come from ACL...
