Rilo Kiley, All Right!

This morning, I woke up to KUT's eklektikos playing a song by a group named Rilo Kiley. At first, I thought this was a Bettie Seveert track I'd missed, but then John Aielli back-announced the song and mentioned that tickets were available for their Austin City Limits taping on Thursday. Well, I can't make that, but I did pick up a ticket tonight for their show at Stubb's BBQ on Friday, thanks to to this posting from the Austinist weblog. I really liked the tracks I played online, and the fact that they're led by Jenny Lewis, who did vocal work on the Postal Service album, gives them uber cool points. I'm going to add them to my Tivo wishlist too, so I'll be sure to catch their ACL show when it airs.

If you want to tag along, let me know.
