As mentioned, the eighth edition of Fun Fun Fun Fest returns to Auditorium Shores on November 8, 9 and 10. Organizers just revealed the first five artists playing this year: Kathleen Hannah's new group, The Julie Ruin, plus Bonobo, Judge (who just reunited for two shows in NYC), The Walkmen, and Ice-T. A limited number of FUN2 Early Bird discounted tickets are on sale Thursday morning (6/20) at 10 AM Central.

Meanwhile, "Guess the Fest" is back for 2013. Name 20 bands/comedians you think will play FFF and the person with the most right answers will win airline tickets to Austin and Homie Passes for two. The second and third prizes aren't too bad, either. You can enter until July 2 and GtF's website has all the details.

Jack McFadden, a onetime Brooklynite who moved to Austin and currently works as a talent buyer at Emo's, gave us a list of his favorite music from 2012 including top 10 albums and a Spotify playlist of his favorite songs. Check it out below.

For those counting at home, that is three talent buyers (the people who book bands into clubs) that have revealed their hand to us, including NYC's Johnny Beach and Chaos in Tejas honcho Timmy Hefner.

The Faint and Trust also gave us their lists. The pair recently toured through Texas and played a Skippy-booked show at Emo's.
