Weekend one of ACL is officially in the books. And as we regather ourselves on this groggy and foggy Monday morning, we take a look back at some of the weekend’s highlights starting with Friday’s ACL Late Night performance at Emo’s with The Wombats and Yungblud.
Liverpool rock icons, The Wombats, released their fourth studio album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life in February and made their return to Austin this weekend right smack dab in the middle of their current US Tour. This time around, they brought the rebellious punk antics of 20-year-old, South Yorkshire-native, Yungblud. With a mixture of hip-hop, punk and UK garage rock, there may not be a performance more energetic than Yungblud’s right now. The high-octane, spitfire poet is fresh off the release of his debut album 21st Century Liability and is also currently touring the US. Both The Wombats and Yungblud will be back in Austin performing during weekend two of ACL Fest. So, word-to-the-wise, do yourself a favor and add them to your ACL itinerary. In the meantime, enjoy the highlights below captured by Melodi Ramirez.
