Dust to Dust…

September 24, 2005

I believe that best sums up this year’s Austin City Limits festival.

For whatever divine, meteorological, or other reasons, Hurricane Rita veered far to the east, meaning that Austin did not get hit by the feared lashing rain and tropical storm-force winds.  Instead it was sunny and hot and windy.  Very windy, but not the 40 mph sustained winds that everyone was fearing.

The result was that Zilker Park ended up doing a pretty good impersonation of the Dust Bowl, especially as the day progressed and more and more people began showing up.

After awhile, I’d had enough.  ACL is a blast, but being there alone and unable to see the various artists through the slinging dust certainly diminished the experience.

I will stand by the statement I make every year around this time.  Why, oh why don’t they push this back into mid-October?
