Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 - Day 2

Banging out a raging "Galang" from her 2004 Piracy Funds Terrorism, Vol. 1 mixtape mid-set might've seemed a momentary backstep had it not immediately been followed by stagehands dragging giddy audience "Bad Girls" up onstage to help "Bring the Noize" via the femme-anthemics of "Boyz."

End of night?

Not until incendiary new single "Y.A.L.A" big-boomed like a suicide audio bomber intent on rapturing all within earshot up to M.I.A.'s version of agitpop paradise via flaming "Paper Planes."

Title Fight

Fun Fun Fun Fest is just around the corner, set to return to Austin from November 8-10. The bands for FFF Nites were already announced, and now the full schedule for the night shows is out too.

We at BrooklynVegan are proud to be presenting two of the Nites shows. Our first one happens on the Thursday (11/7) at Holy Mountain Inside, headlined by rowdy punks Title Fight, who go on at 1 AM. Right before them at midnight is post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids. And opening the night will be two local Austin bands: spacey prog-riffers Boyfrndz (11 PM) and the metallic Pushmen (10:15 PM).

Then, on the Saturday (11/9), our metal blog Invisible Oranges is doing one at Hotel Vegas, which doubles as the Austin stop on the Black Tusk / Inter Arma tour. The sludgy Black Tusk headline at 12:45 AM, preceded by the psychedelic black metal of Inter Arma (11:45 PM), Chicago experimental metal band Yakuza (11 PM), and local Austinites Eagle Claw (10:15 PM).

Other Nites shows include Kurt Vile at Mohawk, OBN IIIs/Blind Shake at Red 7, Subhumans/White Lung at Mohawk, Mac DeMarco/Quasi at North Door, Chelsea Light Moving/Lemuria/Merchandise/The Young at Red 7, Pelican/True Widow/Coliseum at Red 7, Del the Funky Homosapien/Flatbush Zombies at The Belmont, The Men at North Door, Cro-Mags/Ceremony at Holy Mountain, Retox/Narrows/Regents/Coliseum at Holy Mountain, Defeater at Holy Mountain, Bonobo (DJ) at The Parish, and more.

The Sour Notes @ Mohawk - 4/6/2013

The Sour Notes like to keep busy, and 2013 has already seen them play SXSW and many other shows. They're also going to play NXNE and will release a new album (Do What May) before Summer is through. No rest for the weary...

They played the inside stage at Mohawk for The Kids Are Alright Fest on 4/6, and I was able to catch them before Marmalakes (pics HERE) (and before I went to Beerland for Feral Future and White Lung). Some pictures from their set are in this post.

You can see next them play the inside stage at Stubb's for FREE tonight (4/8) immediately following the Grizzly Bear show.

More pictures from their TKAAFest set and some videos below...

MS MR @ The Jr in old Emo's for BrooklynVegan SXSW 2013

""Old Emo's" is code for the place where the legendary rock club Emo's used to be before it moved to some distant region southeast of downtown Austin. Still, the shell of the old venue (and the memories that come with it) are still there, so Brooklyn Vegan seized on it to book a number of day parties full of blog-favorite acts. Two highlights were Autre Ne Veut, who kept the audience in a trance on the outside stage, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, whose psych-lite indie-rock provided a great respite from the loud and unruly crowds out on Sixth Street." [EW.com]
You've already seen photos from the BrooklynVegan Saturday day party at old Emo's HERE, HERE and HERE. Here's one more set of some of the bands that played that day. It continues below...

Our Heart Aches For Syria Benefit @ Long Center - 3/15/2013
Our Heart Aches For Syria Benefit @ Long Center - 3/15/2013

One of the many SXSW events BrooklynVegan had some part in this year, and the most random one, was the "Our Heart Aches For Syria" benefit at the Long Center on the Friday night of SXSW Music. Taking place near and after the Flaming Lips show at Auditorium Shores, locals The Young opened the Omar Souleyman-headlined night to an awkwardly small amount of people in an awkwardly large venue. More people eventually showed, though let's face it, this show should have been at a packed, rowdy 500 capacity space near 6th Street instead of inside a 2500 person theater off the beaten path (those who first conceived this event anticipated a bigger lineup with a bigger sponsor). That said, it was still a great lineup and a fun night, and it was Deradoorian's exclusive SXSW show, and possibly Deer Tick's only SXSW show, and a nice amount of money was raised for those in need. Here are some pictures. More below....

BrooklynVegan is presenting three nighttime shows at SXSW this year, one of which is a special night with Omar Souleman and friends. To quote SXSW:

SXSW is proud to announce an interview with Syrian artist and cult international legend Omar Souleyman on March 15th from 5-6pm in ACC room 16AB. Omar will speak with Daily Dot Editor Austin Powell about the issues surrounding the devastating conflict in his home country, the evolution of the Syrian music landscape, and what the future may hold for himself and artists like him.

Later that evening Omar will be joined by the amazing Black Lips, Deer Tick and more in a special performance at a Red Cross benefit aptly named Our Heart Aches For Syria. The show takes place at Long Center For The Performing Arts beginning at 9pm on Friday 3/15 after the Flaming Lips Auditorium Shores show. Donations are $10 with all money going to the International Red Cross's Syrian Arab Red Crescent. Please join us for a spectacular evening for a great cause. THIS SHOW IS OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC

BrooklynVegan is also throwing a bunch of day parties.

More details on the Omar events with full lineup (as seen on the flyer above), below...
