Vision Quests and Taxidermy: 36 Hours With Phosphorescent

A photo diary of the country-rocker's trip to Austin for the ACL festival

Currently touring behind his excellent ‘Muchacho,’ Phosphorescent (the working name of Matthew Houck), brought his beautifully ramshackle songs to Texas for the Austin City Limits festival. We snagged photos of Houck and his bandmates descending upon the festival, taking in a flick, and, as musicians are wont to do, going wakeboarding. The singer-songwriter himself was good enough to provide the necessary (sometimes iffy) details. All images kindly provided by percussionist David Torch.
