The first-ever Index Festival featured, among others, GZA, Grimes, and Washed Out—tough acts to follow. Despite rough early October weather, people flocked to Deep Ellum in droves. This year's line up is neither quite as fierce nor as diverse, but the combined forces of  Spune Productions, KXT, and Trees have given us plenty to get excited about. We'll show up for Real Estate, Jason Isbell, Rogue Wave, and Lucero, but if you like the sweet, sweet sound of strings, Andrew Bird makes a fine headliner. More than 60 bands play across nine stages over the course of two days, so the odds of musical satisfaction are in your favor.
