Ben Nichols @ Red 7 - 9/10/12
Ben Nichols @ Red 7 - 9/10/12

Ben Nichols, frontman for Lucero, came to Red 7 with Mike Herrera for the Bike Riders Southern Ride. Billed as "BIKERIDERS SOUTHERN RIDE... BEN NICHOLS SOLO TOUR! MUSIC, MOTORCYCLES AND TATTOOS!", it delivered on all three.

Herrera, best known for his bands MXPX and Tumbledown, opened the night and led the audience right to Nichols' door. Ben stepped through it, and as always when he's in Austin, he was at home.

After being introduced by Texas' own ink master Oliver Peck, Ben paused for a moment saying he had no idea [where to begin], which quickly got a call out from the audience for "100 Miles!". A quick glance and an "O.K." later he began. An hour and forty-five minutes flew by and it was done, with laughter, drinks, constant sing-alongs from the crowd, stage dives, and even a guest from the audience joining Ben for a song ('My Best Girl') to finish out the set.

The tour continues through Saturday 9/15, after which Ben rejoins Lucero for their world tour covering North America, Europe, The U.K., and Australia. Lucero will be back in Austin for Fun Fun Fun, and will close out the year in N.Y. and N.J.

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.

BV Day Party @ Hotel Vegan on 3/17/2012

BrooklynVegan's Hotel Vegan, located at Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead Lounge, ended on Saturday, 3/17/2012, on three stages in partnership with Partisan Records and KF Records, and the new Young One Records who helped us put together the hip hop stage which stage headliner Action Bronson cancelled from last minute from (for medical reasons).

The day, and all four days, ended with special last minute addition Okkervil River who played after Deer Tick/Black Lips/Dead Confederate/Los Lobos super group Diamond Rugs who played after Heartless Bastards (who we already posted one set of pictures of). Other previously posted photo sets from this day include Father John Misty, Field Report, Pond and Emily Wells. Here are the rest of the pics.

Like Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we served complimentary HobNob Wines, and on Friday and Saturday we partied with The Original Moonshine, our official spirit partner.

Special thanks to our official backline providers Vox, Blackstar and Korg, and thank you to ASCAP, and to NadaMoo for supplying free vegan treats, and to Honest Tea for the tea.

More, slightly belated, pictures from all of Saturday, below...
