Hundreds of thousands of music worshipers who have made the pilgrimage to Zilker Park the past two years to see their idols perform at the Austin City Limits Music Festival will no doubt make the journey again this year. The lineup, which includes Cat Power, the Pixies, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, Sheryl Crow, and Wilco, guarantees to entertain all weekend long (clockwise from top left, Cat Power’s Chan Marshall, Harper, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Crow, and the Pixies’ Frank Black). Of course, Austin City Limits fans know that the television program received a National Medal of Arts from the National Endowment for the Arts last year, and is the only TV show to be so honored. But average concertgoers have other things on their minds, like more than 130 bands to see on eight stages. (See Austin: Music)
