Taping recap: Black Pumas

Bearing highly acclaimed new album Chronicles of a Diamond and draped in the sparkles of a mirror ball, Austin’s own Black Pumas returned to the Austin City Limits stage for not only their second appearance, but the first taping of our landmark 50th (say it again – 50th) season. Leaders Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada have polished the band’s psychedelic rock & soul to a blinding sheen, as exemplified by the reaction to new hits “More Than a Love Song” and “Ice Cream (Pay Phone),” as well as fan favorites “Know You Better” and “Colors.” Hosting hometown heroes is always a great way to kick off an anniversary season, and the Pumas gave us a show for the books.
