Johnny Marr / Big Fredia / Kurt Vile at FFF Fest, 11/8/2013
Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 - Day 1

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 - Day 1

Marr and his backing trio played half a dozen tunes from his excellent new album The Messenger with confidence, precision, and plenty of rock & roll energy. Even then, "The Right Thing Right," "The Crack Up," "Upstarts," and "Generate! Generate!" earned a muted response. This crowd of 20-to-40-somethings came to hear the Smiths catalog and politely tolerated tunes as strong but not as familiar as those that influenced a generation.

Marr thus treated that audience to superb renditions of "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before," "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out," and "Bigmouth Strikes Again," ending, of course, with the guitar orgy of "How Soon is Now?" and a cover of "I Fought the Law" by way of the Clash. - [The Austin Chronicle]

Big Freedia @ FFFF6 in November (more by Tim Griffin)
Big Freedia @ Fun Fun Fun Fest 6

Big Freedia will be ringing in the new year back in Austin at The Mohawk with Turquoise Jeep. Tickets are still available here for this 12/31 show.

Big Freedia recently played the Mohawk - a Fun Fun Fun Fest afterparty - after bringing Azz Everywhere to the festival proper earlier that day (and became BFFs with Ryan Gosling in the process). Check out more pics from Freedia's Fun Fun set HERE (we missed the Queen Diva's late Mohawk set, but we heard it was packed beyond belief in the inside room where it took place).

Turquoise Jeep also made an even more rare appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest Fest 2011 (in the comedy tent). We missed that too, but heard rave reviews about the Youtube sensations and so are excited for the chance to not-miss-them 'Smanging it' this time around.

Check out videos of both below...
