BMI orchestrated another strong stage during the Austin City Limits Music Festival, October 8-10 in Austin’s Zilker Park. The BMI Stage pulled from all over the country and across the pond for a deliciously schizoid twang-punk-soul-folk sonic bender featuring Two Tons of Steel, Ponderosa, the Kicks, the Ettes, Sarah Harmer, Caitlin Rose, Run with Bulls, the Jane Shermans, Dan Black, David Bazan, Ruby Jane, SPEAK, MyNameIsJohnMichael, Henry Clay People, and T-Bird and the Breaks.
