This is frickin' sweet. It makes me wish I owned a TV-and it happens on my birthday! How fitting that one one of the bands that introduced the World to a new way to look at, think about, and play Rock and Roll gets featured by one of the best TV shows in the history of modern music. ACL helped break artists like Eric Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan (Austin locals, btw) to a legion of music lovers who might never have gotten to see them in their native environment (ie LIVE!). Austin City Limits has spent decades treating artists like artists, giving them a place to just play in front of an audience that will appreciate them and wrapping the performances up in a bow to give them to the World. ACL has also contributed to promoting the culture of Austin, TX which, in turn enriches the cultural heritage or our country as a whole.
