If you like getting lost into the world of synth-heavy, funky beats, and trippy visuals, look no further because Neon Indian is going to be one of the main headliners for Fun Fun Fun Fest.

Gogol Bordello isn’t a band; it’s a way of life.

The Southern California rockers together PANGEA are scheduled to touchdown in Austin at Auditorium Shores, November 6-8. It is sure to be one huge, alcohol and hormone fueled mosh pit. Doesn’t that sound fun? It should! Here’s why.

Do you love dreamy synthpop music with a flair of R&B and funk that transports you back to the 1970s? Well, look no further.

As mysterious as it sounds, nobody really knows much about the producer, Slow Magic.  What we do know is that he makes amazing music that has no lyrics at all, he wears a cool mask, and is gaining a decent following. Having remixed songs by Kodak to Graph and Daktyl, and doing an amazing job […]

Benjamin Booker can easily be described as soulful and punk, but do not categorize him with the blues.

“English not Austrian, solo not a band” is how musician Christopher Blake, better known as SOHN describes himself on his Twitter account. In 2010 Blake released his first songs as SOHN, “Warnings” and “Oscillate” on his Soundcloud page, and his EP “The Wheel” was released in late 2012. He remixed Lana Del Rey’s song “Ride” and […]

At 16, he joined the crossover thrash band Suicidal Tendencies and played with them for years. He collaborated with producer Flying Lotus on both Flying Lotus’s album […]

Your favorite straightedge punk band from the mid 90’s is back together, and they’re playing in Austin. That seems to be the case, at least, every November when punks and hypebeasts alike descend on Auditorium Shores for Fun Fun Fun Fest. It’s almost a yearly tradition for me to look at the posted list and […]

Peelander-Z, Yukon Blondes, Bleached, Christian Bland and the Relevators, Tig Notaro Lucero, King Tuff, etc. Looking pretty fun now.

Just for fun, who would you like to see come to UH in the fall? Give your two cents  

The Fun Fun Fun Fest line-up just got really interesting (as if Atlas Sound, Baroness, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Starfucker, Rakim, Lagwagon, The Head and The Heart, Danny Brown, David Cross, Bob Mould, Tomahawk and Against Me weren’t exciting enough). Austin’s funnest festival will announce the full line up this Thursday the 12th, which we’ll […]
