ACL 2009: White Lies Gain Ground in Austin

Day three of the Austin City Limits Festival featured the British band White Lies, with Harry McVeigh (lead vocals, guitar) Charles Cave (bass guitar and backing vocals), Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums) and Tommy Bowen (keyboards). The band only formed in 2007 and has gained a ton of pop buzz in Europe. They actually won the 2009 BRIT’s critics choice award. That said, they didn’t disappoint the crowed at ACL. I think they’ve definitely gained some ground here in Austin.
