RUN DMC / Black Lips with Val Kilmer /Against Me!
The best part about Austin's annual good time known as Fun Fun Fun Fest is diversity. While punk and metal are driving the tattoo-sleeved set nuts on the Black Stage (pics HERE and HERE), there is an entirely different festival going on at some of the other stages - legendary MCs to movie star cameros, punk legends to some of the best indie bands on the come-up. .
In this post are another set of pics from day one, this time from photographer Glen Brown, including shots of Black Lips with Val Kilmer and Rooney Mara (part of a Terrence Malick movie shoot, more HERE), Against Me!, and Run DMC, plus X, Not In The Face, Dum Dum Girls, Cursive, Diamond Rings, Sharon Van Etten, more Napalm Death, more Converge, Astronautilus, Bob Mould, and Tomahawk.

Napalm Death / Tomahawk / X
The seventh edition of Fun Fun Fun Fest kicked off on Friday (11/2) at Auditorium Shores in Austin, featuring a headlining set from the hip hop legends Run DMC, X (playing all of their landmark Los Angeles), Santigold, Against Me!, and many many others. Our first set of Friday pictures, primarily from the Black Stage (which leaned punk/hardcore/metal) are in this post, including Converge, Napalm Death, Tomahawk, Against Me!, X and Run-DMC. More, along with Napalm Death's new video for "Everyday Pox", and video and the setlist from Run-DMC's set, 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...
See the full line-up below.
Hot Water Music, who have been reunited since 2008, are currently working on their first album since the reunion and since 2004's The New What Next, and that album should be out this May via Rise Records. They only have a few shows scheduled in 2012, including SXSW, when they'll play the free (donations encouraged) Shirts for a Cure 10th anniversary showcase at Red 7 on March 16 from 12-6 PM with a completely stacked 2-stage lineup including the also recently reunited Braid and the also recently reunited DYS, in addition to Darkest Hour, Comeback Kid, Coliseum, Anti-Flag, Tim Barry, and many more TBA.
Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan is kicking off The Revival Tour 2012 at SXSW too, which includes Dan Andriano (of Alkaline Trio), Tommy Gabel (of Against Me!), Nathaniel Rateliff and Lucero-associate Cory Branan collaborating on stage in a traditional folk music fashion. The exact lineup and date for SXSW has not been announced yet (lineups differ slightly by show).
Nathaniel Rateliff will also play SXSW as part of the Communion-presented "Austin to Boston Tour" with Ben Howard, The Staves, and Bear's Den. All Revival Tour and Austin to Boston Tour dates at BrooklynVegan.
