Austin City Limits Announces Season 36
(From Blurt Online) PBS concert series Austin City Limits prepares to launch its 36th season in early October. Among those slated to play this season: reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, comedian, actor and banjo maestro Steve Martin, famed rockers Cheap Trick, hip-hop and soul greats John Legend & The Roots, indie icons Spoon, and more, alongside rising stars like the young bluegrass sensation Sarah Jarosz, the New Orleans funk/jazz/rock/soul darling Trombone Shorty, and the guitar and drums duo The Black Keys.
Others slated to appear: Patty Griffin, Robert Earl Keen, Alejandro Escovedo, Rosanne Cash, Bob Schneider, Lyle Lovett, Brandi Carlile, Monsters of Folk, Band of Horses, Sonic Youth and The National. The initial schedule of broadcasts is listed below, with more tba.
It is the last year the show will be recorded in its original studio, which was designated last year as an historic rock and roll landmark by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. In early 2011 the show will move to its new home, a full-time music venue and state of the art production facility in downtown Austin. Observed ACL mainman Terry Lickona, “With that in mind this season will acknowledge some of the key artists who have long histories with ACL, while simultaneously showcasing the fresh, new sounds in today’s music. It’s great to be able to celebrate the past and the future at the same time!”
