For Day 1′s must-see artists, go here

The countdown to ACL continues and the starting line for the 10th Annual Festival is now within sight. We’re beyond psyched to see My Morning Jacket headline another 2011 mega fest and those who haven’t had the chance to see Stevie Wonder should definitely go see the living legend rock Zilker Park, but if you’re reading this, chances are you don’t need any convincing to see either of Saturday night’s headliners. So here are four artists that perhaps weren’t on your custom schedule for Saturday’s Day Two. Continue on for videos, set times and a few words about the , J. Roddy Walston & The Business, and Wanda Jackson sets at this year’s ACL.

Twin Shadow :: 1:15-2:00 p.m. :: Google+

Twin Shadow was one of the bigger success stories of 2010 in the indie rock nebula, releasing the widely praised debut LP Forget on Chris Taylor’s (Grizzly Bear) Terrible Records imprint after George Lewis Jr. caught the artist’s attention with his early demos. Lewis is also playing a DJ set aftershow the night before with Cut Copy at Emo’s Outside and will be in Baton Rouge earlier in the week for a show at Spanish Moon. Twin Shadow made some serious waves at this summer’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival with their mid-evening Thursday night set and Frontman George Lewis, Jr.’s narcotic and atmospheric vocal style should help ease those still weary from Day One back into festive spirits. That and a good taco.

Twin Shadow – Tyrant Destroyed (Live – Bonnaroo 2011)

J. Roddy Walston & the Business :: 2:00-3:00 p.m. :: Bud Light

Organic, genuine and raw rock-and-roll music is in sparse supply these days and these guys pack that old familiar sound high with soaring harmonies and grinded-out riffs that are great on record, and having not seen them myself, these songs sound like they were fit to boom out with tenfold emphasis in the live setting, without the restraints of knowing that a studio retake is an option. J. Roddy Walston & The Business will also be appearing earlier in the week with the Futurebirds on Tuesday night at One Eyed Jack’s while touring their way to ATX.

J. Roddy Walston & The Business – Brave Man’s Death (Live at Lollapalooza 2011)

Gillian Welch and Wanda Jackson (split) :: 5:30-6:30 p.m. :: Austin Ventures and Vista Equity

The Duchess of Americana v. The Queen of Rockabilly. This is one of those instances where splitting time is an absolute necessity in order to see two can’t-miss artists. Both ladies serve as torchbearers for their respective genres and have gained their respective hordes of adoring fans by staying true and following their chosen stylistic muse. Welch starts 15 minutes before Jackson, so a start at the Vista Equity stage is probably the best move before a scoot over to catch the latter half of Jackson’s rockin’ set. Jackson has been touring with ADELE this fall and Welch stopped in a couple weeks ago for a show at Tipitina’s.

About the author

Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and The Big Easy where he helped get LMB NOLA off-the-ground after launching in January 2011. Over the past few years, he has also contributed steadily to JamBase and Relix Magazine. Recently, Hodges moved on to L.A. where Abita Beer is hard to find, costs about $6 if located and impromptu parading in the streets will most likely get you arrested on the spot.

    Good stuff!  J Roddy Walston is at the same time as Young the Giant, which will pull most of the crowd to the AMD stage (at the opposite end of Zilker), so you can’t really catch them both.
    Cool find with Jackson & Jack White!
    Any recommendations from 3-7 pm?  It looks like Iron & Wine will be the second largest crowd, other than Stevie Wonder.  What are you thoughts about their live set?
    THANKS!!

      Planning on catching Alexander, Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub, Allison Krauss, Abigail Washburn and maybe a little bit of Fitz and the Tantrums. Day 3 preview will go up tomorrow.
