Wilco and Bloc Party?

Word is, if you hop over to the archive pages of kexp.org and listen to the March 14th broadcast, around the 6pm(cst) mark you can hear one of the producers of the ACL TV show comment on the fact that both Wilco and Bloc Party are scheduled to tape appearances for the next season of the show. This could mean they are both going to play the fest this year, as most of the tapings are done around the festival.

The producer is also said to mention the Arcade Fire as on his hopeful list.

On the wiki rumors

A lot of people keep emailing me about the "Rumored Acts" on the wikipedia page.
Im sure that list plays out more like a wish list for people then actual rumors. Remember, last year the wiki page included Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Outkast and a ton of others that didn't end up playing the fest.

Not much...

Besides the MySpace confirmations of The Rev. Horton Heat, Asleep at the Wheel and Blue Mother Tupelo, there isn't much to report.
Im going to start digging more starting today, and remember to send anything you find over to me at aclfestnews at gmail dot com.
As soon as more starts being confirmed, I will start a list on the left (like last year).
