Austin City Limits began to tease their 40th anniversary back in April with the release of a full live set by former SPIN cover stars Nine Inch Nails, and today they've finally announced that the new season will kick off October 4 with a performance from Beck. Jeff Tweedy's new family band, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, pop country stalwart Eric Church, and San Francisco folkies Thao & the Get Down Stay Down represent other highlights from the fall lineup.
Ed Sheeran, Los Lobos, J. Roddy Walston & the Business, Valerie June, and the full Americana Music Festival round out the announced schedule, which will eventually extend to include more episodes airing in January 2015.
