Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)

With less than 2 months to go, today Fun Fun Fun Fest release their FFF NITES lineup:

AUSTIN, TX (September 16, 2014) - FUN FUN FUN FEST (FFF Fest) is excited to announce today the lineup for FFF Nites, the after shows free to festival wristband holders, during this year's festival November 7--9, 2014, at Auditorium Shores. The Nites performances--including over one hundred FFF performing artists and a roster of artists playing exclusively during Nites--are only available to FFF Fest wristband holders; no tickets will be sold at the door.
If you're on the fence, this might be the final push. More than seventy (74 so far if I counted correctly) of the one-hundred-plus above mentioned artists are exclusive to FFF Nites, and access is FREE with your wristband.

Speaking of FUN FUN FUN passes, you can still get them here. Do it. You could try and wait until the Scavenger Hunt to score some free passes, but why risk it?

Check out more of the release including the full FFF Nites lineup below...

Texas VegFest

Texas VegFest will take place this Saturday, April 6 at Fiesta Gardens. From their site:

Texas VegFest, Austin's first vegan festival featuring great food, craft beer, speakers, cooking demos, kids' activities, sampling, and live music, returns for its second year. The festival is back this year on April 6 from 11 AM to 6 PM at the beautiful Fiesta Gardens, 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St. Conveniently located in central Austin, Fiesta Gardens is accessible by bicycle and public transportation. The inaugural festival in 2012 attracted over 3,500 people interested in learning about and celebrating plant-based diets, cruelty-free lifestyles, or just grabbing a bite to eat and grooving to some good jams.
Many great activities and speakers are scheduled, including performances by bands that you (and we) love: Edison Chair, Ray Prim, Silver Ships, Mighty Mountain, The Asteroid Shop and Technicolor Hearts.

Check out more details below, and go spend a great Saturday getting your Veg on.

Griffinshot & Dave the Dog in 2012

I've been hounded for the last few weeks to do a 'best of' post for the shows I've been to and the pictures I've taken in 2012. After several false starts, I decided to just walk through chronologically and try and do justice to all of the wonderful shows without missing too much. Frankly I should be concentrating on posting all of the stuff I shot that never made it live instead of this (woops), but that is next on my list.

The pictures aren't meant to be exhaustive or all-inclusive of what was the best (I'm certain I've missed many things; I'm not even touching festival stuff, and I went to BELGIUM!), but here we go. Personally 2012 was quite the roller-coaster, and every show was a wonderful escape. Some of the shots may or may not be my best work - but if it's in here, then the show, band or bands there, venue and everyone else involved were some of my favorites for 2012 (at least up until November). Loved Gary Clark Jr. and Esperanza Spalding too, but since they are recent you'd find them easily enough.

Have at it. Pictures below. Apologies to anyone I've left out.

Dana Falconberry @ Frontier Bar - 9/9/2012
Dana Falconberry @ Frontier Bar - 9/9/2012

Dana Falconberry's new album, Leelanau, is coming out on October 9. As we mentioned previously, the release party is this week at The Scottish Rite Theater on Thursday (10/4). KUT and BVAustin will be presenting the show and tickets are available now.

She'll be accompanied for the performance by the Tosca String Quartet and Elaine Barber on harp, with special guests Marmalakes and Good Field.

After the party she'll be headed up to Dallas, hitting the road with My Jerusalem through the first half of October. Besides both being from Austin, the two bands have more in common: My Jerusalem's album Preachers also comes out October 9.

The second half of the month has her touring with fellow Austinites Heartless Bastards, as well as Futurebirds (who are from R.E.M.'s hometown of Athens, GA).

Back in early September Lucy The Poodle presented a free show featuring Dana at Frontier Bar with Silver Ships, Eliza Rickman, and Technicolor Hearts (who will be at CMJ this year with BVAustin for The Texas Takeover Party). Unpublished pictures from the Frontier Bar show are in this post.

See more pictures from all of the bands from the September show, along with Dana's upcoming tour dates below.

Zola Jesus @ The Parish - 2/3
Zola Jesus @ The Parish - 2/3/2012

On Friday 2/3, Wisconsin's Nika Roza Danilova (better known as Zola Jesus) came to Austin and played a sold-out Parish. She opened with 'Avalanche', and spent the next hour enveloping and surrounding the audience with her music, all the while darting back and forth on a stage that seemed too small for her. Take a look at the whole printed setlist below.

Brooklyn's Talk Normal and Austin's Technicolor Hearts (whose 'Pretty' made KUT's 'Song of the Day' today - 2/6) had strong performances as well. If you missed them, you can catch Technicolor Hearts on Thursday February 9th (with The Calm Blue Sea, Marmalakes, The Sour Notes and others) at The Mohawk. Tickets are still available.

More pictures from the Austin Zola Jesus show, which ended just in time for everyone exiting to get drenched from the pouring rain outside on 6th Street, below...

The Calm Blue Sea and Silent Diane @ Mohawk on 1/6

Silent Diane @ Mohawk - 1/6/2012

"Luck. The word finds itself suspended in a brief, yet lingering silence. It's the word the two original members of The Calm Blue Sea use to describe the band's return from an 18-month hiatus.

"Certain stars aligned," Bidwell explains. A series of seemingly cosmic events triggered the return of the celestial post-rockers, beginning with their signing to Modern Outsider, an ambitious new record label and management company with a small but promising roster of indie rock up-and-comers.

Personnel issues, new opportunities, financial struggles and a disconnect in priorities were all catalysts for a hiatus that began at the conclusion of a national tour in the summer of 2009.

"There was a lot of pressure in trying to figure out several weeks on the road, and trying to figure out how to finance recordings and how to finance physical pressings of albums," said Patin, the instrumental quartet's long-time guitarist. "That took its toll, not only on everyone's relationships within the band, but it also takes a toll on you with your job and where your priorities are."" [Red River Noise]

Our Free Week coverage continues with many more pictures from Friday's show at Mohawk (a show that also featured an Octopus Project DJ set), The Calm Blue Sea included, below...
