Austin City Limits adds Yeah Yeah Yeahs to ’09 bill

on August 24, 2009, 1:41pm

It’s safe to say the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Saturday night headlining performance at Lollapalooza earlier this month went pretty well. So well in fact that C3 Presents, the company behind the Chicago based music festival, has decided to add Karen O. and Co. for it’s other major event of 2009.

As was the case at Lollapalooza, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been tapped to fill Austin City Limits’ vacant Friday night headlining spot left by the canceled Beastie Boys. The trio, which will play opposite Kings of Leon, will hold down the AMD stage from 8:30-9:45 p.m.

Also added to the ACL bill today were Raphael Saadiq and Ben Sollee. The former will play Lake Bird Lake from 5:30-6:30 on Friday, while the latter will hit Austin Ventures at 12:20 on Sunday. ACL has yet to name a replacement for the recently canceled Lily Allen, who was supposed to close out Lake Bird Lake on Friday night. Expect an announcement for that in the coming days.

As previously reported, this year’s festival is soldout. But if you are interested in seeing the complete list of acts playing, hit our Austin City Limits Outlook page.

Austin City Limits 2009 takes place from October 2-4 at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas.
