Annual Austin music festival Fun Fun Fun Fest wrapped up on Sunday (11/9) after two other killer days with yet another great batch of bands. This time we got the thankfully-still-reunited Neutral Milk Hotel, loads of awesome sets from veteran punk bands on the Black Stage like Murder City Devils, Rocket from the Crypt, Gorilla Biscuits and Hot Water Music, the trippy and spectacular Flying Lotus, reunited alt-rockers Failure, indie vets Yo La Tengo, quality gangsta rap from Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, the always-intense Deafheaven, indie pop dressed in all black from Dum Dum Girls, the crazy Foxygen, the pulverizing Iron Reagan and still more.

We wrote more on day 3 HERE. Check out day 1 pics HERE, day 2 pics HERE, and more day 3 pics below...

FFF

With less than 2 months to go, today Fun Fun Fun Fest release their FFF NITES lineup:

AUSTIN, TX (September 16, 2014) - FUN FUN FUN FEST (FFF Fest) is excited to announce today the lineup for FFF Nites, the after shows free to festival wristband holders, during this year's festival November 7--9, 2014, at Auditorium Shores. The Nites performances--including over one hundred FFF performing artists and a roster of artists playing exclusively during Nites--are only available to FFF Fest wristband holders; no tickets will be sold at the door.
If you're on the fence, this might be the final push. More than seventy (74 so far if I counted correctly) of the one-hundred-plus above mentioned artists are exclusive to FFF Nites, and access is FREE with your wristband.

Speaking of FUN FUN FUN passes, you can still get them here. Do it. You could try and wait until the Scavenger Hunt to score some free passes, but why risk it?

Check out more of the release including the full FFF Nites lineup below...

Friday night (3/14) at the Chevrolet Courtyard was a pretty stellar night of indie stars, for what was easily the most packed night at the open air venue during SXSW. The Strokes' Julian Casablancas officially debuted his new band, The Voidz as well as new songs from their forthcoming album. There was also a killer set from the new line-up of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (who played our Saturday day party); a revealing performance from Dum Dum Girls (one of about 13 they did during SXSW); and the two-drummer attack of Minneapolis' Polica.

The night before (3/13) kicked off with North Carolina duo Sylvan Esso who had just played our day party at Red 7 a couple hours earlier (they were great both times), plus Virginia band Gang of Youths and more.

Chevrolet were also giving away iPod Shuffles at their Courtyard shows, not to mention taxiing people around SXSW for free. Pictures of Wednesday night (3/12) at Chevrolet Courtyard are HERE, and more pics from their Thursday and Friday Courtyard shows below...

Fun Fun Fun Fest

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.

FunFunFun Fest 2012 Bingo!

While we've had some teasers in the last few weeks - Wednesday night was the night for BINGO - and the full Fun Fun Fun Fest reveal.

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.
