Does the name Nirvana ring a bell? We sure hope so. And if your brain's really in gear, you'll remember this week (September 27th, 2011) Nirvana's Nevermind will officially turn 20. To commemorate this momentous occasion, this whole week we're going to feature free MP3s from Seattle's grunge scene, as well as several special guest playlists on such topics as favorite Nirvana songs.
Austin City Limits first existed as a showcase for all different sorts of Texan music, so what would an Austin City Limits Spotlight be without some rootsy folk music? Today we're featuring an ENTIRE Last.fm Discover Studio Session of the talented folk troubadour Bobby Long.
The Austin City Limits Festival is, of course, first and foremost about great live music, and so with that in mind we bring you an MP3.com first - a live session recording of ACL 2011 performers Fitz & the Tantrum's throwback soul rocker, "MoneyGrabber."
Over the past nine years, the Austin City Limits Festival has become renown for bringing a wide range of music and activities to the Austin's Zilker Park. The Festival has grown from being a celebration of Texas style music, to incorporating acts from across the full spectrum of music - ACL 2011 includes jazz, rock, country, folk, hip hop and electronic music acts. Exemplifying this is the inclusion of a band like Mariachi El Bronx in the line up.
