Fucked Up, Residual Kid, Brain Attack @ Red 7 - 1/28/2014
Canadian punks Fucked Up, who we just caught in NYC playing the last-ever show at Brooklyn venue 285 Kent, made their way south for a few more US shows while they were on our side of the border, including an Austin stop at Red 7 this past Tuesday (1/28). The show was moved from its original location of Mohawk, due to the extremely cold temperatures we were faced with. Opening the show was very young Austin band Residual Kid, plus Dirt Cult-signed local punks Brain Attack (
mems. of Wiccans and other bands). Pictures of the show are in this post.

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...
