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.

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.
Cursive at BV-SXSW 2009 (more by Leia Jospe)
Cursive are releasing their seventh LP, I Am Gemini on February 21 via Saddle Creek and touring in support of it through April. That tour hits Austin on April 14 at Mohawk with support from Cymbals Eat Guitars and Conduits. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The tour also includes dates in February and March with Austin's Ume. Although they won't be at the Mohawk show, hopefully we'll get a hometown show from them either before or after the Cursive tour. Did anyone catch them (Ume) at Emo's East with the Black Angels on New Year's Eve?
When we first announced the Cursive tour, they had just released the album's first single, "The Sun and Moon," which you can stream HERE. A second cut from the album, "The Cat and Mouse," has since been revealed and can be streamed below.
And speaking of emo-leaning indie bands playing Mohawk, The Jealous Sound will play the Austin venue on February 6 as part of their tour in support of A Gentle Reminder, their first full length album of original material since their 2003 debut. Tickets are on sale now.
