Austin City Limits Line-Up Announced

So, this is turning out to be a very disappointing morning. I knew the line-up would be released today and there was one particular name I was hoping to see on the bill that is not included. So, I guess my hopes that Pearl Jam would be headlining have been crushed.

The line-up is pretty stong, but, I don't really see the Foo Fighters as a headlining band for a festival. Don't get me wrong, I like the Foos, love Dave Grohl, but I just don't see them as a headliner.

I think it's weird that M. Ward is playing without Zooey Dechannel as She & Him. I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up there with him. (News 8)
