[Fwd: ACL Music Festival Artist Addition: Roky Erickson makes first full concert appearance in two decades]
Roky Erickson has joined the lineup for the 2005 Austin City Limits
Music Festival. Erickson, a legendary rock & roll pioneer from Austin,
TX, will be making his first full concert appearance in almost two
decades. He will be backed by the Explosives, who backed Erickson for
almost 50 shows in the early '80's. This is no doubt a historic event,
as one of the greatest singers and most influential songwriters in rock
history takes the stage a mile from his boyhood home in south Austin.

Limits (ACL) Music Festival to be held September 23-25 at Zilker Park in
downtown Austin. Confirmed artists to date include Coldplay, Widespread
Panic, Oasis, The Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers Band, Wilco, Lyle
Lovett, Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Robert Randolph & The Family Band,
Jimmy Cliff, Buddy Guy, Jet, Dierks Bentley, Arcade Fire, Death Cab for
Cutie, and many more.

allow this. I hope he tears the roof off the place.
Speaking of tearing the roof off at a music festival, Twangfest was
fantastic. The Bottle Rockets were especially amazing (best show of theirs
I've ever seen), but the whole week showed the variety and vitality of what
can be called alt.country thrives in 2005. I may write more later when
I've woken up.
