No Lily Allen at ACL!

I just heard the news on Ultra8201: Lily Allen has bowed out of this year's ACL Fest!

That's right, Lily Allen: sad face.

Above is the new(ish) video for Allen's single "22," off It's Not Me, It's You. The cinematography is a little unforgiving, but I rather like the gritty low-light throughout.

May I submit a humble wish list of replacements, C3 Presents?

But that one's been rumored for a while.

How about an ever-so-slightly less known gal, like Amanda Blank! (a little nsfw)

Or - THE TWELVES. Played at Canvas Bar for SXSW 2009, and I just caught a minute. A minute of pure rapture, that is.

What about Walter Meego? I can't decide if I detest this video or not, but I do likey his sound.

Your thoughts, dear Reader?

Lily Allen backed out of another Austin concert several years ago...was supposed to play at a summer festival at Carlos 'n Charlie's. Had tix to that one, too...she's batting 0 for 2 in my book at this point.

Maybe they'll actually get someone good then.
I can't believe it sold out already.

What is it with the lady Brits? Amy Winehouse last year too (but given her, uh, situation - that was hardly surprising).

Come OVA Lily Allen. I promise you'll like it.
