Thousands showed up for the 11th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival this past weekend and guitar rock fans were not disappointed.

Heath Fogg from The Alabama Shakes, Brian Bell from Weezer, the always entertaining Greg Dulli of The Afghan Wigs, Florence and the Machine’s Robert Ackroyd and James Mercer of The Shins showcased some terrific guitar pop and rock at Zilker Park in Austin.

And that veteran of a thousand festivals, Neil Young was in scintillating form as he roared through classic Young cuts, "Powderfinger," "Cinnamon Girl" and a gloriously revved up closing version of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)."
