Fun Fun Fun Fest

We already know the lineup for Austin's 4th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest on November 7th and 8th will include 7 Seconds, The Jesus Lizard, Red Sparrowes, and Atlas Sound and Broadcast.

FFF's own "Lineup Leaks" page expands upon that list with Why? (whose tour is coming to NYC), GZA, Melt Banana, King Khan & BBQ Show and comedian Todd Barry.

BV would like to further leak that our most-favorite weekend in Austin will also feature sets by Alaska in Winter, Les Savy Fav, comedians Jake Flores, Joe Staats & JT Habersaat, VEGA, Lucero, Metallagher, The Night Marchers (they played Mess With Texas last year at the same venue), and Shonen Knife (part of their large upcoming tour).

Speaking of the Hot Snakes, Obits are scheculed to play the South Street Seaport in NYC tonight (7/31).

The official FFFFest "leak" page includes stage assignments, which are below. We have 2008's FFF Fest in pictures (day one & day two), and you can check out recap videos from 2006 and 2007, also below...

That looks like a good lineup of bands.
Melt Banana is always a kick ass show.

"night marchers didnt play last year."

Oh yeah, oops. That was Mess With Texas (same promoters) in the same location during SXSW. I get them confused sometimes. Updating, thanks.

I heard that some BS that DEATH ( http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/15/arts/music/15rubi.html?_r=1 ) was reuniting to play FFF as their only fest date. Is that true? If so, I'm rentin a van and buyin some drugz.

if you guys like Hot Snakes check out
this new band from Brooklyn, FayRey.

I saw them at Arlene's Grocery and they were fabulous (Sonic Youth meets Dresden Dolls), and really approachable too.

I know they said they were playing Googies Lounge at the end of Aug. but here's their MySapce Page, for shows

fuck your fayrey bro. go twitter it.

"fuck your fayrey bro. go twitter it."

I agree. I went to the myspace page since I love the Hot Snakes. The band sounds nothing like the Hot Snakes. The vocals are to subdued. Quit the spamming.

"I heard that some BS that DEATH was reuniting to play FFF"

The group already "reunited" to play the Joey Ramone bash. It's only one original member playing with his sons.

This link came out after my post. I knew about the NY date, I was asking about the fest date. For FFF, it looks like its 2 brothers and no sons FYI. Great news.

Back to the blogger who slammed FayRey as nothing like Hot Snakes...no spamming, that's just my opinion. The first song on their MySPace, yeah really "subdued"...buy check out cool slacks or love-lust love...anyway, its just my opinion.
