ACL Update - Friday Part 4

While they set up the stage for Steve Earle and his band, Kasabian played on the next stage. We really enjoyed the music. It had a New Wave energy and reminded me a lot of the Buzzcocks.

Enough people left after Asleep at the Wheel to allow us to get right up front. Steve Earle came out with “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” playing on the sound system and proceeded to give us a rockin’ political set. “Usually”, he said, “When we play festivals we just play the hits… but”. He then played several songs from the new CD, “The Revolution Starts Here”, but did get a few hits in, including Jerusalem and Copperhead Road. His wife, Alison Moorer joined him on stage for a few songs. He kept his comments to a minimum and let his music do the talking; but it spoke loud and clear.
