Line Up Set for Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. Fun? You Bet.
With the Austin City Limits Festival (and i ts rather mediocre line up ) coming just around the corner and talk of SXSW 2009 already heating up, it’s a wonder that the state capitol has room for yet another multi-day concert event. But, lo and behold, here comes the third annual Fun Fun Fun Fest (which is partially sponsored by Dallas-based music blog Gorilla Vs Bear ), set to take place at Waterloo Park on November 8th and 9th. See the impressive full lineup after the jump.
Oh, and more impressive? A press release from the festival states that more acts should to be added to the bill in a few days! Hell, that third stage bill of classic punk (Flipper? Really?) is enough of a sale for me.
If this is a taste of what SXSW might bring, then where can I get a wristband? --Darryl Smyers
