Austin's other music get together

Play it: Austin City Limits Music Festival 2006

Austin City Limits announced their festival lineup for this year and it's once again pretty jaw-dropping. 130 bands on 8 stages (September 15-17) - besides the big three of Tom Petty, Willie Nelson and Van Morrison, there's a veritable who's who of acts I want (need) to see. Gnarls Barkley, The Raconteurs, Sam Roberts, The Flaming Lips, Iron & Wine, Cat Power, Wolf Parade, The Black Angels, Centro-Matic, The New Pornographers... need I go on?

Ok, how about the Palm Elementary School Choir? Seems like an anomaly in the otherwise stalwart lineup, but they did play last year (and SXSW this year) and even made an appearance on the Today show. Another act my son Eli can get behind is the Imagination Movers, who sings songs like "Bye-Bye Diaper," "I Want My Mommy" and "Please and Thank You." See, there's really something for everyone at this festival.
