ACL 2014 MUSIC FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS 3: CAPITAL CITIES
Indie pop duo CAPITAL CITIES performed at ACL Weekend One and Two for the first time this year. SEBU SIMONIAN and RYAN MERCHANT performed several versions of their songs including their hit single "Safe and Sound." In the 12 years since ACL has started, CAPITAL CITIES' performances have witnessed the revolution in music festival's scenes to entice a more diverse crowd. Their limitless brass and lyrics brought fans an ephemeral journey that livened up ACL's atmosphere. The duo covered most songs off "In a Tidal Wave of Mystery", and made sure to include the idyllic beats from “Kangaroo Court”, “Farrah Fawcett Hair”, and “I Sold My Bed Not My Stereo”, and the anthemic batch of hit singles in “Safe And Sound” and “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Trumpeter, SPENCER LUDWIG caught all audiences' hearts by his magnificent trumpet performance, and he waved the trumpet like a baton to arouse rhythmic brawl at the stadium-sized pop extravaganza. CAPITAL CITIES' is a band that genuinely give their all energy to a performance and continues to impact the music industry.
