Austin City Limits report: FNL's Adrianne Palicki on Blues Traveler

Editor’s note: If Palicki wasn’t our favorite before, she most certainly is now.

So last night at Austin City Limits, I got to participate in the viewing of one of my personal favorite bands, Blues Traveler. One thing is for sure: they did not give us the “Run-Around” this time.(Come on! That was good!)

[Editor's note: That was a good joke! But to minimize confusion, they did, actually, play "Run-Around." I think it was the second song of the set. Which was nice, cause then I could go do something else. Anyway. Adrianne! Please continue.]

Can I just say, Who the hell taught John Popper to play the harmonica? That man is a mad genius. Between the harmonica, the guttural vocals, and the drinking and smoking thatensued on stage, I am surprised that man has not had a heart attack. Starting the night off with “I Want You To Want Me,” and ending it with “Hook,” no fan in the audience could have been disappointed. Traveleralso played soon-to-be-hits from their new album. The entire band is amazing. Watching these guys perform brought about a nostalgia that can only be reminiscent of my days in junior high, when “Run-Around” wasnumero uno on the charts, and Saved By The Bell was still on TV. Oh, Zach Morris… I digress… Point is, these guys still have it– or, shall I say, never lost it.

    Sad I couldn’t be at ACL this year, so thanks for the report! And Adrienne, you’re funny- how about more Popwatch?

    Great recap, Adrianne! I hope to someday make it to ACL, but until then it’s nice to read about it from another music fan’s perspective! Also, any blog that mentions Zach Morris has my vote!

    Saved By the Bell was still on tv when Run-Around was #1? Hmm… I guess because I switched to Friends that time so I didn’t notice anymore.

    I can’t believe that Popper gained weight again. I saw him in New York four years ago and he looked great. I hope that he just takes care of himself.
