The sounds scheduled to pour off of BMI’s shady stage at the 2010 Austin City Limits Music Festival slated for October 8-10 in Austin, Texas, promise grade-A sonic goodness. Mirroring the acclaimed diversity of the festival itself, BMI has stacked a stage with rock-n-roll, electronic, neo-folkies, and musical melting pots who adroitly pull from it all, spanning the vintage rowdiness of Ponderosa and the sophisticated multi-instrumental rock of My Name is John Michael to Dan Black’s modern electro-pop and Caitlin Rose’s new spin on golden-age honky tonk.
