ACL 2008 - Day 3 in pictures (abbreviated and belated)

Sorry for the delay...we left for on our return trip to Minnesota immediately after Day 3 and didn't arrive back home until early Tuesday morning (2am or so). Only now have I had the time to wrap up this half-ass ACL coverage of mine.  Plus, my memory card ran out of space on Day 3 so pictures were few and far between.

Gillian Welch, my highlight of Day 3, performed with David Rawlings on the AMD stage.

Joined now by (not so) surprise guest Alison Krauss to sing 'Didn't Leave Nobody but the Baby' from O Brother.

Neko Case a couple sets later at the AMD stage via jumbo screen.  As always, she put on a great show and this time to likely one of the biggest crowds she's ever performed.

Did I forget to mention it? On Day 3, HAM joined our team for the entire day of fantastic music, heat and the biggest crowds yet. This pic captures the Hankster having just awaken from a long nap during a pre-Foo Fighters set by Band of Horses.

Other acts from Day 3 not pictured here include: The Kills (probably the only new find of the fest), Stars, The Raconteurs (Jack White held up nicely with a slipped disc in his back), the very end of Gnarls Barkley featuring a cover of Radiohead's 'Reckoner,' Band of Horses and Tegan & Sara. We left Zilker Park just as the Foo hit the stage to begin the long drive home.

I wound up cutting Band of Horses short, too, and caught the end of Tegan and Sara. Good seeing the three of you!
