Preview: Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest 9

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013In a few hours, I'm headed back to Austin for the 9th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest, which for three days will fill Auditorium Shores with an omnivorous lineup of Alt-Rock (Modest Mouse, Neutral Milk Hotel, Dinosaur, Jr.) Hip-Hop (Nas, Wiz Khalifa) Metal (Judas Priest (!), King Diamond), Hardcore (Rocket From the Crypt, Murder City Devils), Electronica (Girl Talk, MSTRKRFT) and Spoken Word (John Waters, Jello Biafra, Fred Armisen). Not to mention the Skate Ramp, the Wrestling Ring, the Taco Cannon, and much, much more. (And, that doesn't include the afterparties.) This will be my fifth visit to the Fun Fun Fun Fest - check out my past coverage from FFF2, FFF4, FFF6, and FFF8 to get a sense of why I think this is, pound-for-pound, the best quality/worst named festival in the U.S.

Stay tuned here - as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - for updates throughout the weekend.
