FFF Nites

BrooklynVegan will return to Fun Fun Fun Fest this year and yes, we are hosting another bill of heavy music in Austin, Texas as part of the newly annointed Fun Fun Fun Nites (aka the afterparties)! The almost-fest-within-a-fest will feature some bands on FFF and others playing only the night shows, which run from the night before the fest (Thursday, 11/3) through the final night of the festival (Sunday, 11/6).

The BrooklynVegan show will go down at Red 7 on 11/4 over two stages with headliners Doomriders alongside From Ashes Rise, Phobia, Mammoth Grinder, and Mindless (ex-Hatred Surge) while the indoors will feature a headlining appearance from Powertrip with Touche Amore, Pianos Become Teeth, Dead End Path, and Miles Away. The show is all ages and FREE for FFF wristband holders.

Over the rest of the FFF Nites, bands like Ty Segall, Cold Cave, Glass Candy, Kool Keith, Trash Talk, Deafheaven, Russian Circles, Mates of State, Neon Indian, Purity Ring, Dom, Zero Boys, Death Grips, The Thermals, David Liebe Hart (who played 2 NYC shows yesterday), Toxic Holocaust, and many, many more will play the after-parties, all of which are listed below.

The actual fest schedule is HERE.

If you somehow don't have tickets to Fun Fun Fun Fest, then you are in luck! I have five pairs of THREE DAY PASSES (which includes all of the FFF Nites admissions) AND a Slayer prize pack to give away! In order to enter, you can try for a pair via the BrooklynVegan Faceboook (contest will be up soon), or you can follow the directions at the bottom of this post to try and win one of the other four pairs we have. Good luck!
