Back at the beginning of the month, we shared with you all the very impressive lineup for the fifth incarnation of Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, which is set to take place on November 6, 7 and 8 in Waterloo Park, down in that pretentious city about three and a half hours south of here.
This year's edition of the fest marks a serious step-up in the upstart fest's game: In addition to a adding a third day of performances to this year's ordeal, the lineup features stalwarts like Devo, Weird Al, MGMT, Bad Religion, The Hold Steady, Mastodon, Deerhunter, Ariel Pink, Slick Rick and many, many more. And, unlike, say, ACL, this festival's rather affordable, coming in at just a hair over $125 for a three-day pass (single day passes and weekend-only passes are also available at lesser rates).
To that end, this shouldn't be much of a surprise: The folks involved with the fest tell us that tickets, while still available here, are quite limited at this point.

This, hopefully, will come as a surprise, though: Fun Fun Fun Fest's organizers have passed along a free pair of tickets for us to hand out to one lucky DC9 reader. And, yes, that means it could be you.
Given that this is a little bit of a bigger deal than our usual giveaways, we're gonna run this one a little differently. We won't hand this one out to the first person to respond.
Rather, we'll pick a name at random, from a pool of entries received from right this moment until 5 p.m. today.
To enter, simply shoot me an email with the words "Fun With Festivals" in the subject line. We'll contact the winner shortly thereafter to let them know of their victory. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner. Still want passes? Get them right here. Or, just check back here on DC9 next week; thanks to your overwhelming response, the folks at Fun Fun Fun Fest, blown away by your interest, just offered us another pair of passes to give away then.
