Phish and Ea­glEs and Mon­stErs!

Austin American-Statesman - - WEDNESDAYBRIEFING - — Pa­trick Cald­well

Bar­ring can­cel­la­tions or ad­di­tions, ticket buy­ers for the sold-out Austin City Lim­its Mu­sic Fes­ti­val are now free to plan their week­end down to the minute: The daily sched­ules for the Oct. 8-10 Zilker Park event are out.

This year’s grids brought a few sur­prises — in­clud­ing Mon­sters of Folk re­ceiv­ing a rare non­head­lin­ing two-hour set from 6 to 8 Satur­day night, and lo­cal soul out­fit

T-Bird and the Breaks get­ting prime billing from 6:40 to 7:20 Sun­day night. Phish and the

Ea­gles will both play two-hour clos­ing sets on Fri­day and Sun­day night, re­spec­tively; re­turn­ing ACL head­liner Muse, mean­while, nabs just an hour and a half Satur­day night.

As al­ways, the re­lease of the sched­ule grids also brings a few con­flicts — al­though none of them are, mer­ci­fully, on the or­der of 2007’s in­fa­mous Arcade Fire-ver­sus-White

Stripes co­nun­drum. Some of the more con­tentious spots in­clude the Black Keys ver­sus

Bro­ken Bells on Fri­day af­ter­noon, Sil­ver­sun Pick­ups ver­sus Lo­cal Na­tives and the Tem­per Trap ver­sus the XX on Satur­day af­ter­noon, and Band of Horses ver­sus the Flam­ing Lips on Sun­day night.
