ACL 2007: Huge E-mail Update

247027706_01672b2240_m.jpgYou’re all probably subscribed to it already, but ACL has sent out an e-mail update today and it’s chock full of good stuff.

First, the $50 pre-sale for next year will happen the week after this year’s ACL, so watch your inboxes. Did they even have one this year? My memory’s terrible. I remember 2 years ago that their meager infrastructure couldn’t handle the demand.

Second, you can pick up your wristbands for this year starting on Monday, September 9th.

Third, there’s a set of ten free downloads on iTunes featuring these ACL artists: Art Brut, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Ryan Shaw, Old Crow Medicine Show, Heartless Bastards, Indigo Girls, Andrew Bird, Bloc Party, Tokyo Police Club and The Cribs. You’ll need the code from the e-mail to get them.

Last, they’re down to 5 bands for the battle to see who wins a slot ACL this year. The five finalists are Blue Flashing Light, Golden Bear, Homer Hiccolm & The Rocketboys, Nelo Music and Quiet Company. The winner will be determined at a live show at Antone’s next Wednesday, Sept. 12th. My vote is for Golden Bear.
