this weekend: FUN FUN FUN fest '09

The 2009 Fun Fun Fun Fest and related festivities go down this weekend in downtown Austin's Waterloo Park. This year's lineup is by far the young fest's best yet: headliner-ish acts the Pharcyde, GZA, Danzig, Kid Sis, D.R.I., Destroyer, the Jesus Lizard, Of Montreal, and the Cool Kids are reason enough to attend, but here's a sampling of other acts we're psyched to see, in no particular order. Peruse the full lineup + schedule here, and avoid long lines/sold-out festivals by getting tickets in advance here.

Our FFF friends have also hooked us up with a pair of tickets to give away: just leave a comment below or twitter@us if you want them, and I'll pick a winner on Thursday.

VEGA :: no reasons
death :: politicians in my eyes
no age :: you're a target
SSION :: clown
strange boys :: heard you wanna beat me up
king khan & BBQ show :: love you so
harlem :: south of france
RATATAT :: shiller
neon indian :: deadbeat summer
yeasayer :: ambling alp
fuck buttons :: surf solar (7" edit)
times new viking :: move to california
crystal castles x HEALTH :: crimewave
atlas sound :: walkabout (feat. noah lennox)
mika miko :: so tough (slits cover)

My flight is booked for Austin this weekend, and as if leaving the cold of Chicago wasn't prize enough, free tix to FFF Fest would be the bee's knees. Thanks for the opportunity!

An Austin band not mentioned but worth checking out on saturday (FFFFEST) is the Laughing. They have come a LONG way since their white tiger days. Worth seeing if you get there early enough. Their new record is awesome.

This lineup is great! However, I do not feel any of these bands will be considered the best rock bands of all time. Does anyone agree with me? Haha sorry if this is kind of off topic, but I just came a crossed a website today that kind of made me think more of how bands will go down in history. http://www.ranker.com/list/top-500-musical-groups-and-artists-of-alltime/clark-benson
Does anyone agree that these bands will never be on this list?

also, two of my friends are going but my family is too poor for me to go.

my brother is in jail on a murder charge but he is mentally ill and was attacked. we got kicked out of our house because of this. my mom sister and i have been living together in our new place but my sisters moving out so me and my mom have to move out to some new place because we cant afford this place. im trying to start school and my car just went to shit and we're moving like a hour away from everything.

MY TWO FRIENDS have tickets because we're going down to austin for my friends 21st birthday

(i didnt do anything for my recent 21st because again, im poor)

help me go

all of that is actually true haha. i dont know, i dont really care about most things so, its not that big of a deal. im cool with going down there and just going to the free shows and just hanging out by myself while they're at the festival but it would make the whole experience alot cooler

....it would be cool if you didnt approve this comment to not let pepople that arent close friends know my problems.

i dont know maaan

haha sorry

late! have a good day/night!

i lost my job, house, and this is the reason i can't attend. plz pick me!! went last year and it was amazing. i regularly follow your blog and just attended the Mellisa Nadler concert at the Modern in Fort Worth so therefore i spent what little remaining money i had on independent music and a sponsored event hosted by you. i love your concerts. have been to all your showcases at SXSW. please pick me! it would mean tons and it would restore my faith that just some jack-ass wins who could give a shit and doesn't know who the Jesus Lizard is.

Chris, I could use the tickets. I don't want to rip my jeans jumping the fence like I did last year. Although the cool breeze blowing into my jeans did feel nice.
