ACL Spotlight: Andrew MacMahon in the Wilderness

Weekend One is behind us now but we’re continuing our Spotlight series this week to talk about some of the bands that are worth getting to the fest early to see on Weekend Two! Today’s Spotlight is shining on Andrew MacMahon in the Wilderness, who will take the stage again this Friday, 2:15 pm on the American Express stage.

 

Andrew MacMahon is a longtime mainstay of the indie/pop-punk scene, starting out with his high school band Something Corporate in the late 90’s who signed to Drive-Thru/MCA Records and landed themselves on the Billboard charts with their first single “If You C Jordan”. After Something Corporate went their separate ways in 2004, MacMahon continued to release his signature piano-rock tunes under a new moniker, Jack’s Mannequin, until recently retiring the name for his own and has been writing and recording as Andrew MacMahon in the Wilderness since 2014. He may appear a little more clean-cut these days compared to his time with Something Corporate, but he’s still delivering the same intensity, stage presence, and the piano-based indie anthems we know and love him for. Trust us, you don't want to miss his ACL performance: last week's show involved inflatable dancing men, massive rainbow capes, rubber ducky crowd surfing, and was an incredibly fun time all around.

 

Our very own Lawless got to speak with him backstage in the 101X tent before his ACL set last weekend, catch a replay of the live stream here and check out Andrew MacMahon in the Wilderness’ latest video for “So Close” down below.
