Austin City Limits 2019
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (Spoiler: not much
Bad, very little Ugly, so much overwhelming Good)
Before we knew it, we’d reached Sunday and the star power was strong. Banks, Rosalia, Fisher, Griz, Rebellution, Third Eye Blind and Kacey Musgraves played flawless sets. Lil Uzi Vert did a (slightly-too-predictable) no-show, disappointing fans. Lizzo’s shockingly overwhelming crowd sardined themselves into what little space was available at the Miller Lite stage and revelled in her uplifting message. While many expressed frustration at the crowd, Lizzo is the one artist so deserving of such reception; from her immaculate performance to undeniable talent and inclusive message. I still get goosebumps reminiscing on this particular set. Late in the day, headliners Mumford & Sons brought the members of Austin High School band for a charming local cameo, while Cardi B brought us a slightly-delayed and definitely-too-short set that was actually a whole lot of fun.
