It’s the week of ACL

My plans for this week:

Thurs. night – Austinist‘s Local Music is Sexy party. Looks like I’m going to this by myself. . . I’ll at least make an appearance. Or attempt to.

Friday night – Guster and Gomez at La Zona Rosa. I know more Guster music than that of Gomez, mainly because I’ve been listening to them longer. I haven’t seen Guster in concert since early 2001, back when “Fa Fa” was getting a teeny bit of airplay. I love Gomez’ new album, and I made G. a copy so she’ll know some of their tunes by concert-time.

Sunday – ACL festival, day three (click the link and head to day 3 to see my plan for the day). Five of us are going to this; Mel’s staying with us for a couple nights, I think. None of us are huge Petty fans, so we’ll probably leave before the concert is officially over.

Monday, I am taking off from work to recuperate/upload digital photos to flickr. Whoo hoo!

I’m looking forward to the festival because I heart the New P*rnographers, but I’m not eager to deal with all the crowds. Thankfully we’re only going for one day. I think that’s all I can handle.

I really hope it isn’t too hot. . .
