Austin City Limits Rocks. As does Austin Kiddie Limits.

That's really all there is to it.

I didn't try to be methodical in tracking our movements or shows or anything, and so I won't have a formal wrap-up. (I am sure Stefan will, or maybe already has; same with Gwyneth. [I haven't looked through Reader yet upon getting home.])

But it was a ton of fun, even with the rain and ludicrous quantities of mud. We loved Lunch Money and Secret Agent 23 Skidoo (who, by the way, is coming to the No Nap Happy Hour in April) and Mr. Leebot and Milkshake; we, alas, missed some other great stuff on the kids' stage. On the other stages, we saw the Avett Brothers, the Felice Brothers (who are producing and playing on Dean Jones's new record, and it sounds great), B-52s, Dirty Projectors, Flogging Molly, and a bunch more than that I'm not remembering right now.

Ella's favorites were Lunch Money on the kids' stage and Flogging Molly and Dirty Projectors elsewhere. One assumes that the Molly being Flogg[ed] is not Molly of Lunch Money.

Off-festival-grounds, we saw a ton of friends and ate great food.

Thanks, as always, to the nice folks at C3, especially Tor, for their hospitality!

If nothing else had been awesome about ACL (and else was totally awesome), the whole trip would have been worth it to make it into Ella's top three list alongside Flogging Molly.
