Eric Webb,

There was no doubt that pied piper [Billie] Eilish - maybe the most famous teenager in the world, at least to other teenagers - was going to amass enough people to petition for statehood Saturday at Austin City Limits Music Festival… Of course the opening shot was “Bad Guy.” Eilish bounced around every stretch of stage she could find, a lime sock up here, an orthopedic boot up there. She didn’t need to tell anyone to do the chart-topping single’s handclaps. That song’s generation-defining “duh” was a secret password, too - she knew that you knew just how to say it…

Eilish’s brand is Halloween chic, spooky memelord, dancing because the boomers let the world burn and then hid the water buckets. Her talent’s not just branding, though. It’s entertaining. She moves with ease and commands an army with an expression. Her shoulder only shrugs on one side, and she flicks her green press-on nails like she’s studying for her Hogwarts A-levels… Her voice is pure and haunting, but she’s not afraid to go torchy or droning. When Billie Eilish tells you to open up multiple mosh pits in a crowd packed tighter than canned ham, it just kinda happens. “Wider,” she says. Don’t make her flick a nail again…

Eilish’s propensity to break composure is Jimmy Fallon-esque, except it’s charming. She performed the big parts (the thrashing; lying on-stage to dream auto-tuned dreams) and the small parts (little moments with her 10 fingers splayed wide; an eye-roll where you gotta have one; air-drumming, always crucial)…

Eilish started out grazing the outstretched hands like you’re used to seeing a pop idol do at an ACL Fest show. But then there seemed to be more and more hands, and she started to linger a little too long with each step for her security’s comfort, obviously. All the scene needed was Eilish on a donkey and a few palm fronds stuck along the path.

Then Eilish went in for the selfies, and that was a ballgame. She leaned back on the barricade into the waiting arms of several young women. They all laughed, together.

Yeah, Billie Eilish owns.

    By Thomas on Nov 14, 2020

  12. Here I am in my undies! Boys try not to get too excited!

    By Madame Phoote on Nov 14, 2020

  13. I’m jacking off to that like a maniac, Madame!!

    By Corey M on Nov 14, 2020

  14. But I jacked off to a tree this morning too…..

    By Corey M on Nov 14, 2020

  15. Thomas - yes! I am very catholic in my taste and while I can relate to the 1910 Fruitgum Company (I bought stuff when it came out)The Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus and The Monkees, to Jimi Hendrix and Cream, Neil Young and CSN&Y. I dig Elbow, Brian Eno, Talking Heads to Dua Lipa, Lily Allen, Billie Eilish, Paloma Faith, Johnny Flynn, Laura Marling and Ed Sheeran. It is what I love about music there is so much to chose from and something for everyone. Last time I saw Billie she smoked the entire room and really can SING!

    By swappers on Nov 15, 2020

  16. the one and only real Madame Phoot has no letter e on the end of their name you foolish troll”e”

    By Madame Phoot on Nov 15, 2020

  17. Each to his own I guess . I suppose some people even think Miley Cyrus can sing .

    By Thomas on Nov 15, 2020

  18. Thomas - while I don’t really get Miley I am pretty sure she can sing. Her cover of her Godmother’s ‘Jolene’ proved that to me and her last live appearance that I caught at Glastonbury last year, whilst not to my taste, proved she could holler with the best of ‘em. A strong voice and getting rockier as she matures. No?

    I do believe in each to their own and there are bands I don’t get or enjoy and occasionally feel left behind and missing the point (Kanye West? Really?) but that’s the beauty of Big O, something for all of us. Except maybe homophobia, racism, extreme nationalism, the Alt Right and the Wide Wide World of Merkin Sports but that’s just a few pesky troll lites . . . .they don’t mean anything here in the great scheme of things. Occasionally I have fun baiting the little sophomores . . . .

    It’s always been about the music! And I have been here for years and ain’t going nowhere!!

    Have a great day, Thomas! ;)
