Austin City Limits Festival DVD/CD
Some of the best clips from the Austin City Limits Festival are set to be released on a live CD/DVD set.
Not to be confused with the Austin City Limits television program, which primarily hosts country musicians, the Austin City Limits Music Festival generally features an eclectic mix of indie and Brit rockers.
Highlights from the past few years will be packaged together for a pair of two-disc CD packages and a DVD. Some highlights from the CDs include performances by Jet, Keane, Jason Mraz, Blues Traveler, and the Allman Brothers Band.
The DVD will feature many of the same performances, but will also include some fun extras such as artist interviews and four short documentaries on Ambulance LTD, Blues Traveler, Ruthie Foster, and Roky Erickson, according to ChartAttack.
