Austin City Limits Dispatch #1: My Luggage Really Loves Me!

I'm finally checked into my hotel room here in Austin after a long day of travel: and, unlike last year, my luggage has decided to join me. That's right, I'm not going to have to spend hot, sweltering day #1 of the festival sweating in yesterday's clothes. Though to be fair, I don't sweat, I glisten. I'm a lady. Anyhow, last year, my suitcase somehow ended up in Hawaii. How my suitcase manages to get there when I myself have yet to go baffles me. After a quick rest, I'm probably going to go downtown while I've got the chance. Tomorrow's lineup? I'm planning on checking out the following artists (though, yes, I am aware my complete agenda is a physical improbability)...

Got a coupla acts battling for my attention, any recommendations would be appreciated in those cases. See ya on the grass!
