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.
