#MusicMonday | FunFunFun Fest 2014 | Black Stage

As previously announced, Volcom will be taking over the ramp at Fun Fun Fun Fest this year, and in just 4 weeks the skate team will be loading into the vans and heading out to Austin, TX. From now until then we'll be highlighting each Monday some of the up-and-coming and lesser known acts playing each stage at the festival. Today we begin with the Black Stage... Fat White Family has caused quite a stir lately in their hometown of London, captivating audiences with their heartfelt and raucous live shows which may on occasion include full frontal nudity. The Fat Whites have now set their sites on America. Their set at FFF should come as a pleasant and unexpected surprise for festival goers in search of something new. Catch Fat White Family on the Black Stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX on Saturday, November 8th. Featuring a couple members of Municipal Waste as well as dudes from Darkest Hour and Mammoth Grinder, Iron Reagan are no strangers to the art of the cross over, having perfected the punk-hardcore-thrash trifecta. We can't wait until these guys take to the Black Stage to deliver what we anticipate will be one of most energetic sets at the festival. Catch Iron Reagan on the Black Stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX on Sunday, November 9th. Our third recommendation comes from our friends in Rise Against who recently took this band out on tour with them. Radkey, a 3-piece punk band from St. Joseph, Missouri keeps it in the family. Formed by three brothers, Dee, Isaiah and Solomon, Radkey are playing good 'ole fashion punk rock, particularly a kind sounds like it was recorded in the 90's, but written in the 80's. Ya dig? Catch Radkey on the Black Stage at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX on Friday, November 7th.

High above L.A. with Death Valley Girls and Jennifer Herrema

Death Valley Girls are Bonnie, Rachel, Laura and Larry. Tommy is the studio dog :) They are all super easy going laid back types, so getting them in Volcom swag was a breeze. The sun was bright and hot but the beer was cold and we moved forward with the shoot like "pros". They played I shot. They drank I shot. Tommy ran around as if he were a big dog, but he probably only weighs 5 pounds. Larry decorated the walls with old girl gang posters and I played with the flash and shutter speeds while the girls organized their gear to start the jam. It was totally fun. I got my own private show and a few good pics for the road. The view was incredible…we were totally high above Los Angeles. - Jennifer Herrema Bonnie and Rachel get ready to rock. Rachel and Laura Bonnie makes her final adjustments.

Photos & Video: Volcom Entertainment Live in Japan vol.6

The sixth installment of Volcom Entertainment Live in Japan on August 23rd may have been the series most eclectic line up yet. Featuring Tucker "the 1 man band" who opened the night with a set that incorporated the usual guitar, bass, drums, to the unusual: fire, tin cans and various electronic apparatus, he awed a packed crowd of new and old fans alike. Following Tucker were Saigan Terror a crossover thrash/hardcore band from Kōenji who donned black ski masks and for a song employed the vocal talents of a 7 year old screamer. Next was skillkills who switched the sound of the night up again with a avant-psychedelic-hip-hop set. To close it out, longtime Volcom Japan family, Abnormals, took the stage to rowdy crowd of fans.
