Austin Bound

Picture2 Taking off for Austin for the second time in six weeks, this time for the second annual Fun Fun Fun fest, featuring 60 bands on three stages at downtown Waterloo Park. Featured performers include: Explosions In the Sky, The New Pornographers, Ted Leo, Cat Power, Battles, Don Caballero, and the reunited Murder City Devils, playing together for the first time since 2001. (Coincidentally, Alex Ross will be on a panel at the adjacent Texas Book Festival tomorrow afternoon; maybe I can convince him to come along after he signs my book...)
