With theAustin City Limits Festival
(and its rather mediocre line up
) coming just around the corner and talk ofSXSW
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 annualFun Fun Fun Fest
(which is partially sponsored by Dallas-based music blogGorilla 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
