Austin City Limits 2011 | Special Treats

After missing last year's ACL Festival, the WhatUpWally? crew is excited to avenge our dissapointments. A few years ago we were able to see Conor Oberst, MGMT, CSS, Beck, Erykah Badu, Jamie Lidell, Mars Volta, and N.E.R.D. - among others. 

To celebrate the announcement of an even better lineup, WhatUpWally? would like to offer you some special treats from the acts we most anticipate. Enjoy and see you September 16th!

Viva La Hova Mashup Mixtape with Coldplay and Jay-Z

Kanye West

I remember back in 2003 (I think) when my homegirl Julie made me listen to Kanye's College Dropout. Through the Wire was on the radio but the album hadn't become huge yet (that was after Jesus Walks). I flipped as we listened to the whole album. A few months later I bought two tickets to his show at House of Blues in San Diego and couldn't convince one person to go with me. Show was dope and I can't wait to see him again... you can find the whole WUW? staff at the front of the stage.

Bright Eyes

A few years ago I was able to see Conor Oberst's solo set at ACL. The new Bright Eye's Album is a hard one to stop spinning.


From DJ Benzi's New Deal Mixtape

Cold War Kids

Favorite song off their first album: Robbers & Cowards

Smith Westerns

I was introduce to BSS in 2005 and
this song is what hooked me.

We got a chance to see these kids rock live - and they rocked well!

Not ashamed of geeking out,
