The 2010 Austin City Limits Festival kicked off with performances on day 1 (Friday, October, 8th) by The Soft Pack – 1:00 to 2:00, Blues Traveler – 2:00 to 3:00, The Mountain Goats – 2:00 to 3:00, Miike Snow – 3:00 to 4:00, Girls – 3:00 to 4:00, Broken Bells – 4:00 to 5:00, The Black Keys – 4:00 to 5:00, Beach House – 5:00 to 6:00, Spoon – 6:00 to 7:00, Sonic Youth – 7:00 to 8:00, Vampire Weekend – 7:00 to 8:00, Robert Randolph & The Family Band – 7:15 to 8:15,  The Strokes – 8:00 to 9:30 and more.
… Additionally, Sonic Youth taped an episode of Austin City Limits (the TV show) on October 7th.
Fiery Furnaces’ Eleanor Friedberger played her band’s “Waiting To Know You” with Spoon during their set and Broken Bells covered The Black Keys’ “Everlasting Love.”


Vampire Weekend seemed pleased to play before Phish, with drummer Chris Tomson wearing a Phish T (as he did on Saturday Night Live in March 2010).  Spinner noted, “if you closed your eyes and thought about Vermont, ‘Cousins’ and ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’ have that rhythmic element that Phish staples ‘Yamar’ or ‘Bouncing Around the Room’ contain.”

Phish kicked off their fall tour headlining Austin City Limits on the 8th (webcast on the 9th) with a solid mix of their classics (opener “Down With Disease,” closer “First Tube,” “Chalk Dust Torture” and “You Enjoy Myself” in between) and a sprinkling of quintessential New York covers: Talking Heads’ “Cities” and a lengthy take on Velvet Underground’s “Rock and Roll.”  On the 9th the four members played 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado – though not together as Phish – as part of the Fourmile Canyon Revival benefit concert with The String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band and others.  They continued their tour with the first two of three nights at the same venue on the 10th and 11th with the debuts of two new songs – ‘My Problem Right There’ (on the 10th) and ‘What Things Seem” (the next night, click on links to watch) – along with covers of the Rolling Stones’ “Loving Cup” and an unexpected stab at a song by a newer NY band, TV on the Radio’s “Golden Age” (played once before by Phish, November 27, 2009).  The fall tour ran through October, ending with a three night run at the Atlantic City Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey for their annual Halloween festivities.
