Wilco followed by Bright Eyes

Musical innovation is the theme for this episode of Austin City Limits featuring Wilco followed by Bright Eyes. The Chicago-based Wilco has outgrown the alt-country genre with their emotional, intelligent lyrics and explorative music on releases like A Ghost is Born and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Bright Eyes’ music is inundated with searching melodies fleshed out with the sounds of accordion, piano, mellotron, pedal steel, vibraphone, and the haunting voice of the group’s only constant -- 24 year old singer/songwriter Conor Oberst.

The Killers followed by Spoon

The Killers have taken their catchy rock out of the indie scene and into the mainstream. Highlights include the hit "Somebody Told Me" and other songs off the band's newest release Hot Fuss. Spoon explores the sound limits of indie-rock while keeping thoughtful lyrics at the forefront. The Austin band performs songs from their newest CD Gimme Fiction.

the wilco ACL is awesome!

they play muzzle of bees, ashes of american flags, i'm a wheel and a couple of others...nels shreds the guitar!

the bright eyes segment is also pretty good, although conor oberst is just a tad whiny
