Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.

After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]

The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.

We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1  HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.

What a weird set of bands. Reminds me one of those late 90's Lollapalooza lineups. Just no real theme I see here. And Slayer with Glass Candy? Those audience must have made great love together in the pit.

A lot of beauty

I hate to be the grinch, but despite the beautiful beginning, which held tons of promise for me, I felt the song overall was heartless and pretentious. There was a superficial, plastic, insincere feeling to it all, like they're trying to sell an image and the music is sort of secondary. I feel like they lack the authenticity to accomplish what, say, Young Galaxy achieves with We Have Everything. Not trying to rain on anyone's parade: it's just my opinion.

In the physical dimension, no-one is totally open, but that's not the point, we still strive to be perfect in what we consider 'good', openness being one of those attributes. Creativity isn't exactly a catch-all either, I'm really good with linguistics and (kind of) music, but it's not like I'm creating anything new, I'm just using systems of sounds. Anyway, not everyone is meant to be 'creative', or at least, not in the stereotypical sense.
