Five songs and roughly a half dozen stage dives into his band's farewell-to-Red 7 show on Friday night, Riverboat Gamblers singer Mike Wiebe took a short breather to consider what the night meant to him, his band, and the 600 or so fans jammed in front of the club's two stages.

After a bit of a ramble he got to the heart of the matter, that in its nine years of operation Red 7 had earned a spot on the continuum of dearly departed Austin clubs such as Emo's and Liberty Lunch. It did that, Wiebe explained, by hosting shows with acts trafficking in adventurous original music, rather than "some (expletive) Stevie Ray Vaughan cover band in one of those places a few blocks from here." - [Austin 360]

After nine years of live music, Red 7 held its final show on Friday night (8/28), offering up Red 7 regulars The Riverboat Gamblers, Sweet Talk and Spray Paint inside, and Nashville Pussy (who were joined by Gary Lindsey from Black Eyed Vermillion for a song), Valient Thorr and and Crimson Devils outside. Pictures from the last goodbye are in this post. As its two stages were the home of our SXSW parties the last few years, we are sad to see Red 7 go.

Monday night (8/31), Mutoid Man helped christen Sidewinder, Transmission's new club right down the street. Pretty amazing turnaround, seeing how the space was still Red Eyed Fly just a couple days before. The venue's next show is Wednesday (9/2) with Unearthly, Krow, Spectral Manifest, and Ayasoltec. You can check out Sidewinder's upcoming show calendar, and check out more pics from Red 7's last night, below...

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.
