    Re: Austin City Limits 2013

    Franklin BBQ is an experience and the food is unfuckwithable. It's BBQ at its best. That said... On a normal day, you have to get there around 8-9AM to get in line. I'd imagine, on ACL weekend,...

    Re: Tell Us About 2012 Releases

    New Shearwater (2/14 release) is stunning. Not quite up to "Rook" or even "Palo Santo" but better than the ultimately forgettable "Golden Archipelago". The highs aren't up there with "Snow Leopard"...
