Some bad news earlier this week for Transmission Entertainment, the folks behind Austin's ever-expanding Fun Fun Fun Fest: Devo had to back out of its engagement because of an injury. Promoters are promising replacement acts in their stead, though, and already, they've announced one we here at DC9 very much enjoy: Brooklyn's Forest Family Records-signed Cults. They're no Devo, no. But as the fest continues to find replacements for the legendary art rockers, it's not a bad start.
UPDATE: Transmission has announced a headliner replacement for Devo--the Descendants. Well played, Transmission. Well, played.
So it's with great pleasure, then, that, one last time, the folks at Transmission Entertainment have been kind enough to pass along to us a pair of tickets to hand out to one lucky DC9 reader interested in checking out next weekend's three-day ordeal. And it could be you, too.
