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.

Temper Trap greeting fans in Brooklyn
Crocodiles, whose new album just came out on Frenchkiss, strangely are touring with Temper Trap, who honestly we're not huge fans of, but plenty of others are, as the band headlined the very large Stubb's the other night after also playing an in-store at Waterloo earlier in the day. Earlier on the tour, the Temper Trap played an "intimate" Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg with opener Penguin Prison, and our photographer Toby Tenenbaum, a huge fan of Brit rock in all its forms (for better or for worse), was in attendance. Here are his pictures from that show.
