According to this last.fm event page for the Fourth annual Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, five acts have been confirmed: JESUS LIZARD, ATLAS SOUND, BROADCAST, KING KHAN & the BBQ SHOW and RED SPARROWES. Fun Fun Fun Fest will be held in Austin’s Waterloo Park, November 7-8th, 2009.
Should we expect DEERHUNTER, b/c of Atlas Sound?
How about the MUMMIES? That would make me happy and a whole bunch of others.
Or the Murder City Devils? But they already played FFFFest before.
Maybe HEALTH, DAUGHTERS! and ANDREW W.K.???
I scrolled through PITCHFORK’s Guide to Upcoming Releases and Pause and Play’s On the CD Front, and would like to think that I am right about out these bands playing FFFFest, but I am probably wrong (note that I am just making wild assumptions): Bikini Kill, Silk Flowers, Blur, Iron Age, Japandroids, Night Horse, RX Bandits, Sian Alice Group, Pictureplane, Dark Meat,The Roots, Squarepusher, Destroyer, Pissed Jeans, Asobi Seksu, Matisyahu, Sic Alps, Juliette Lewis, Vivian Girls, The Dodos, Girls, Islands, Why?, Black Heart Procession, Times New Viking, Air, The Gossip, Clientele, Thoa, Russian Circles, Flaming Lips, Devendra Banhart, Quasi and Pixies.
UPDATE 7/07: Later in the day, someone told me that Butthole Surfers would be playing FFFFest and Peaches too. I know Butthole Surfers are playing RIot Fest in Chicago in October. I took a look at that schedule, so let’s add to my fake list: Akaline Trio, Butthole Surfers, NOFX, Riverboat Gamblers and WAX.
UPDATE: 7/16: The NIGHT MARCHERS CONFIRMED!!
UPDATE: 7/21: GZA, Melt-Banana, Todd Barry and WHY? leaked
UPDATE: 7/28: Alaska in Winter + 7 Seconds also.
UPDATE: 8/02: yes!! HEALTH, Shearwater, Shonen Knife, DEATH, Les Savy Fav and Lucero.
