ACL Highlights.

Here's a few pictorial highlights from this weekend's ACL Festival:

Phoenix (Friday)

John Legend (Friday)

Them Crooked Vultures (Friday)

Kings of Leon (Friday)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Friday)

The Virgins

!!! (Saturday)

Grizzly Bear (Saturday)

(Sadly, I only got photos up until 3:45 Saturday, since I didn't want my expensive camera getting ruined by the rain. I must say, though, that Citizen Cope put on a GREAT show, as did Bon Iver, The Decemberists and DMB.)

The B52's (Sunday)

White Lies (Sunday)

Toadies (Sunday)

Arctic Monkeys (Sunday)

Passion Pit (Sunday)

Ben Harper & The Relentless7 (Sunday)

Girl Talk (Sunday)

Dan Auerbach (Sunday)

Pearl Jam (Sunday)

Favorites? Definitely Passion Pit, White Lies, Girl Talk & Phoenix!

Am I glad I went? Of course. Am I even more glad it's over? Absolutely! Besides weathering just about all the elements (less snow, of course), it's just plain difficult maneuvering a nearly seven-months-pregnant body through a crowd of 65,000+ people a day! I'm already off balance, which the mud/DilloDirt (if you don't know what that is, trust me - don't ask) did nothing to help, and then throw in hoards of people wasted/tripping on just about every imaginable substance, and it's nothing short of a miracle that I managed to stay on my feet all weekend! Would I recommend this to another pregnant woman? Probably. Might as well go now while I'm still childless and only have to carry her on the inside, right? Just be was a LONG weekend!
