#MusicMonday | FunFunFun Fest 2014 | Nites

For our final Fun Fun Fun Fest edition of #MusicMonday we're highlighting the post-festival shows that Fun Fun Fun Fest put on each night after the festival ends. See, in addition to throwing a super rad 3-day festival, Transmission Events - the folks behind Fun Fun Fun Fest, put together a nightly assortment of free shows around the Austin area exclusively for festival ticket holders. Like the festival itself, the Nites shows are all over the map genre-wise; below are a few of the acts we're looking forward to seeing. Hardcore punk forefathers Negative Approach delivered a devastating dust fueled set at the 2011 Fun Fun Fun Fest, this year they are back playing FFF Nites at Red 7 on Friday, November 7th with Sick Of It All, Rotting Out and Self Defense Family. We we're turned on to these two artists, Ssleeperhold and S U R V I V E, from a friend when discussing our mutual affinity for the Gatekeeper Giza EP a couple years back. Analog synth worshippers are probably already hip to both of these acts' brands of hauntingly-heavy synth, for everyone else let your imaginations run wild as you take in the sounds below. S U R V I V E play Holy Mountain on Friday, November 7th with IceAge and Helm. Ssleeperhold play Holy Mountain on Sunday, November 9th with Destruction Unit and Memorymannn. Finally there's Mikhael Paskalev, the Norwegian artist who went viral with his "I Spy" video, now signed to Mom+Pop Records and on tour here in the U.S., this is his first time back in Austin since his Stateside debut in March 2013. There are way too many bands playing Nites, not to mention the festival itself to cover in this post or previous editions of #MusicMonday, including Volcom Entertainment's own Riverboat Gamblers and ((sounder)), so do yourself a favor and dive into the Fun Fun Fun Fest schedule and begin plotting your festival days and Nites. If you don't have 'em yet, there are still tickets available to Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend, November 7, 8, 9th. We'll see you at the Super Collider.

#MusicMonday | FunFunFun Fest 2014 | Orange Stage

We're just 11 days away from the start of the 2014 Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX and the unveiling of the Volcom Super Collider ramp at the festival. For this week's Fun Fun Fun Fest edition of #MusicMonday we're focusing on the festival's Orange Stage. If you haven't read our #MusicMonday recommendations for the Black Stage and Blue Stage, you can check them out here and here, respectively. No one will fault you if you are not yet hip to Courtney Barnett. However, you may be chastised if you attend Fun Fun Fun Fest and sleep on her performance. She is a singer-songwriter from Australia that channels rock’s most glorious characteristics through her songs and left-handed guitar. We can think of at least one other left-handed guitarist (now deceased) that would no doubt approve. See Courtney Barnett on the Orange Stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest on Friday, November 7th. This one is simple guys... Go watch King Tuff rock and roll. The new album is a homage to classic rock with the kind of teeth that make great white sharks jealous. This is good time rock music delivered by a modern day craftsman who is compelled to keep it weird. King Tuff plays Fun Fun Fun Fest on the Orange Stage on Friday, November 7th. We've been fans of Dee Dee from the Dum Dum Girls since falling hard for her old band out of San Diego some years ago. Today we're still following Dee Dee and Dum Dum Girls who album after album turn out stylish, swoon-heavy dream rock. See Dum Dum Girls on the Orange Stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest on Saturday, November 8th.
