Snoop Lion / Action Bronson / Flatbush Zombies
VICELAND was the center of the universe for a great deal of awesome hip hop, and as such our photographer captured quite a few sets from the venue. Check out some amazing photos of Snoop Lion (on 3/14), A$AP Ferg, Action Bronson, Danny Brown and Flatbush Zombies (all on 3/15) at the space during the week of SXSW. More pics are below.
VICE is coming to Austin for SXSW and will be taking over 401 E Cesar Chavez for VICELAND, which includes events from March 8-11 during the interactive portion, and from March 12-16 during the music portion. The music events feature a ton of bands like Kendrick Lamar, Action Bronson, Baauer (DJ), Parquet Courts, Snoop Lion, Major Lazer, Ghostface, Danny Brown, Divine Fits, Japandroids, Wavves, Austra, Merchandise, and many more. RSVP is open.
Baauer, who shot to huge fame recently due to homemade videos of his 2012 song "Harlem Shake" going viral, will tour from Texas to Coachella with rapper Danny Brown in April. You can see the dates in the poster above, via Fader, and listed 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.

Danny Brown about to get hit by a lemon at FADER Fort
Danny Brown handled getting something thrown at him much better than ASAP Rocky did. Check out the video below....
We've teamed up with Converse and SXSW to build The FADER FORT Presented by Converse and are heading to Austin, Texas to host our annual four-day showcase. Today, we're stoked to announce that Santigold, all four members of the Black Hippy collective [aka Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul] and Zola Jesus will perform. Stay on top of more lineup announcements, coming soon, by following FADER on Twitter and joining our mailing list.If you can't make it to the FADER Fort, Fuse will also be streaming it live.
An official SXSW event for the first time this year, the FORT runs from March 14th till March 18th. FORT wristbands (with RSVP, to be posted in the coming days) and festival badge-holders will be admitted. [FADER]
As we recently pointed out on BrooklynVegan, FADER's new issue has an interesting article on Black Hippy, and member Schoolboy Q has a new video for "Druggy Wit Hoes Again," featuring Ab-Soul which you can watch below.
If we had to guess, you'll also be able to catch Danny Brown at FADER Fort this year, since he is going to be in Austin for SXSW (Fool's Gold and Pitchfork have him), and like Kendrick Lamar, he is on the cover of the new issue. Danny Brown also visits Stubb's as part of his tour with Childish Gambino.
Zola Jesus also plays the official Sacred Bones showcase.
