Arctic Monkeys / Passion Pit @ FPSF - 6/1/2013
The official closing band on Saturday at FPSF was the Postal Service, but for those of us who know how much even mellow indie-rock like the fare played by Ben Gibbard et al. owes to Detroit madman Iggy Pop, he and his Stooges were the climax of the day's events.Houston's Free Press Summer Festival kicked off yesterday (6/1) with sets from The Postal Service, Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit, Iggy & The Stooges, Alabama Shakes, A Place to Bury Strangers and more. Pictures of those (and other) bands are in this post.
A crowd gathered around the Neptune Stage to pay tribute to the grandfather of punk and as soon as he stepped onto the stage, we went through a time machine. Though he looked his generation, his voice told a different story, screeching out just as powerfully and dangerously as it had 40 years earlier. [Houston Press]
Arctic Monkeys have been playing a new song, "Do I Wanna Know?," at their recent shows, and if you haven't checked that out yet, you can watch a video of them debuting it in California last month, along with more FPSF pictures, below...

MS MR @ The Jr in old Emo's for BrooklynVegan SXSW 2013
""Old Emo's" is code for the place where the legendary rock club Emo's used to be before it moved to some distant region southeast of downtown Austin. Still, the shell of the old venue (and the memories that come with it) are still there, so Brooklyn Vegan seized on it to book a number of day parties full of blog-favorite acts. Two highlights were Autre Ne Veut, who kept the audience in a trance on the outside stage, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, whose psych-lite indie-rock provided a great respite from the loud and unruly crowds out on Sixth Street." [EW.com]You've already seen photos from the BrooklynVegan Saturday day party at old Emo's HERE, HERE and HERE. Here's one more set of some of the bands that played that day. It continues below...

Scenes from Fun Fun Fun Lucky Lady Bingo via Adi Anand's Instagrams 7/11/2012
On 7/11 (Happy Slurpee Day!) Fun Fun Fun held their bingo-to-reveal-the-artists event, and while we already knew about Run DMC reuniting and some others, there were quite a few surprises in the massive list of musical acts and comedians announced (Public Image Ltd., Youth of Today, De La Soul, X, Bob Mould, Saul Williams, and Hannibal Burress to name a few).
The headliners (in addition to the aforementioned Run DMC reunion) are an electic-but-looked-forward-to group: Santigold, Refused, and for Comedy David Cross.
Three-day and PIP passes go on sale on Thursday at 10AM CST and will no doubt move fast. Get them here once the clock passes 9:59...
