MIA / Glass Candy / Judge @ FFF Fest, 11/9/2013 - Day 2
Banging out a raging "Galang" from her 2004 Piracy Funds Terrorism, Vol. 1 mixtape mid-set might've seemed a momentary backstep had it not immediately been followed by stagehands dragging giddy audience "Bad Girls" up onstage to help "Bring the Noize" via the femme-anthemics of "Boyz."Day 2 of Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 (Saturday, 11/9) featured sets from MIA, Deerhunter, and Television, and we already posted one set of pictures with their performances, and now we have another set from the entire day that also includes Pelican, Descendents, Chromatics, Judge, Chelsea Light Moving, Antwon, White Lung, Ice-T (with and without Body Count), and more. Those are in this post.
End of night?
Not until incendiary new single "Y.A.L.A" big-boomed like a suicide audio bomber intent on rapturing all within earshot up to M.I.A.'s version of agitpop paradise via flaming "Paper Planes."

Title Fight in Brooklyn in 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
We at BrooklynVegan are proud to be presenting two of the Nites shows. Our first one happens on the Thursday (11/7) at Holy Mountain Inside, headlined by rowdy punks Title Fight, who go on at 1 AM. Right before them at midnight is post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids. And opening the night will be two local Austin bands: spacey prog-riffers Boyfrndz (11 PM) and the metallic Pushmen (10:15 PM).
Then, on the Saturday (11/9), our metal blog Invisible Oranges is doing one at Hotel Vegas, which doubles as the Austin stop on the Black Tusk / Inter Arma tour. The sludgy Black Tusk headline at 12:45 AM, preceded by the psychedelic black metal of Inter Arma (11:45 PM), Chicago experimental metal band Yakuza (11 PM), and local Austinites Eagle Claw (10:15 PM).
Other Nites shows include Kurt Vile at Mohawk, OBN IIIs/Blind Shake at Red 7, Subhumans/White Lung at Mohawk, Mac DeMarco/Quasi at North Door, Chelsea Light Moving/Lemuria/Merchandise/The Young at Red 7, Pelican/True Widow/Coliseum at Red 7, Del the Funky Homosapien/Flatbush Zombies at The Belmont, The Men at North Door, Cro-Mags/Ceremony at Holy Mountain, Retox/Narrows/Regents/Coliseum at Holy Mountain, Defeater at Holy Mountain, Bonobo (DJ) at The Parish, and more.

Chelsea Light Moving @ Mohawk (more by Chad Wadsworth)
Thurston Moore's new band Chelsea Light Moving, who finished up their tour in Boston tonight (4/7), visited Austin for SXSW. While in town they played "House of Vans" at Mohawk, in Waterloo Records' parking lot, and inside Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop for KEXP. You can watch live video from the latter, and a video of Thurston talking about how much he loves Waterloo (where you can stop by on Record Store Day to pick up a limited Thurston Moore & Loren Connors release), below...
