    Austin Kiddie Limits Schedule Set (along with a few other bands)

    Well, the schedule for the 2007 Austin City Limits Festival was announced today, which is a good thing, seeing as the three-day passes are sold out and those without tickets must now resort to individual day passes. (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3)

    Of course, you don't really care that Bjork is headlining Day 1, do you? Or that you'll have to choose between the Arcade Fire and the White Stripes on Saturday? Oh, yes, you probably do, because even if you don't care about Bjork, there are lots of other people who do, and so if you want to see particular bands on the Austin Kiddie Limits stage, you better keep in mind that those lots of people who want to see Bjork don't care that you really want to see a kids set from Sara Hickman -- they'll have bought all the tickets in advance.

    Unfortunately, the organizers have done a good job of forcing people to buy all three days' worth of tickets spreading the quality acts all around -- there's no single day that's head-and-shoulders above the rest. (Except, of course, when they're scheduling great acts at the same time -- I'm lookin' at you, Wilco and My Morning Jacket on Sunday night.)

    Anyway, here are the Austin Kiddie Limits times:

    Friday, Sept. 14th
    Sara Hickman, 11:30 - 11:50
    Bummkinn Band, 12:30 - 12:50

    Daddy-A-Go-Go, 2:30 - 2:50

    Saturday, Sept. 15th
    Bummkinn Band, 11:30 - 11:50
    Jambo, 12:30 - 12:50

    Sippy Cups, 2:30 - 2:50
    Farmer Jason, 3:30 - 3:50

    Sunday, Sept. 16th
    We Go To 11, 11:30 - 11:50
    Farmer Jason, 12:30 - 12:50

    It's almost enough to make me want to leave the cool, green, mountainous environs of Seattle and move to the hot, sweaty environs of Austin. Almost.One of these days, when our family wins the lottery, it would be oh, so fun to go to Austin City/Kiddie Limits and SXSW. For now, keep us posted so we can live vicariously through others.

    Total rockin' good fun. I am so tempted. We even have friends in Austin (with a KID!), so could possibly create an excuse to go.... I've done less seemingly rational things for the sake of a cool kid's concert.

    Wow. Am I nerdy!

    Oh, but PS - I kinda do care about Bjork. Does that change my nerd factor at all? Not much, huh?

    Hey Deb, I dunno about Bjork...Jeff Tweedy's more my speed. But I'm with you on the nerd factor. I put the "er" in Nerd. Buy me a ticket and I'm there with you in Austin.

    Well, I don't really care about Bjork, but that's the whole point of festivals, right? To go see bands/artists you'd never shell out $60 (or even $6) for on an individual basis...

    Bjork AND Tweedy and.... Katy, let's ditch the kids and meet there, say?

    Point? Is there really a point? darnit.

    Other than my husband being in Amsterdam on business and it being the 2nd week of school (in a new school) for my girls, I don't see why I couldn't fly off and meet you in Austin. That's why God invented toaster waffles, right? C'mon, the neighbors can look in on the kids. They'll be fine. Uh-huh.
