The fortieth season of Austin City Limits returns this upcoming weekend (January 3) with the first of seven brand-new episodes. Part two of the 2014-2015 season kicks off with a little alt-country this weekend, and then it’s full steam ahead with the much-anticipated performances from two of Austin’s indie darlings, Spoon and White Denim in week two. Other notable forthcoming performances include: Future Islands, Jenny Lewis, and The Black Keys.
Check your local PBS channel for day and time in your area. As always, I’ll post the full performances in the Indie On TV page, but not any of the alt-country. Check your fave alt-country blogs for those.
