Long time readers of FoM will remember my two previous visits to Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, in 2007 and 2009. Now in it's 6th year, FFF has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings in postage stamp Waterloo Park, expanding to a full three-day lineup (Nov 4-6) with no fewer than 130 bands. (What is this, ACL?)
As in previous years, there are multiple stages, each with it's own distinct programming: indie, electronic, comedy and - the wild card - metal/hard rock. I mean, can you think of another festival that pairs Spoon with Slayer?
If you're planning to be in Austin next weekend (like me), tickets are still available for the very reasonable price of $135. You could also buy a single-day ticket for $55, but why would you? I mean, just check out this lineup.
