    I had no idea they got back together. I guess I should because I have always considered them one of my favorite bands.
    Holy shit! am I excited!

    I'd been meaning to see Melt Banana for years and never got around to it. Their live shows are supposed to fucking nuts.

    Melt Banana is one of the craziest bands I've ever seen live. Absolute frantic energy from beginning to end.

    They toured with Tool in 2007. Though they were awesome, Tool fans weren't the most welcoming to them.. Caught them here in Austin at Mohawk and they made me a fan.

    PIP beers can definitely be carried out, but only one. Beers can be carried anywhere around the festival.

    Am I misremembering then? I could have sworn I remembered them stopping people trying to take beer out of the PIP area over closest to the main entrance with the view of the orange stage.

    I'm about 82.5% sure that they were just checking to make sure no one was leaving the PIP with multiple beers.

    yeah you could definitely take 1 beer out but now 2, same rules for both of the past 2 years.

    I have a question of about FFF Nights: is it a good rule of thumb to pick one venue and stay there all night because of capacity reasons, or do people move around enough that you can watch a set and then move to another place?

    I went to several of the FFF Nights shows and they never reached capacity. I'm sure if Snoop Dogg or some of the bigger names have shows then it might fill up. If I remember correctly they don't sell tickets to the public and with like 25 to 30 acts a night it's spread pretty thin all over the city so you shouldn't have much trouble.

    Also, I saw this posted on FFF's facebook page. They're only 12 years old. I'm definitely going to make it a priority to see these kids.

    It's crazy like every year here. Most of the fruit in Texas comes from the high plains/Lubbock area, and this year was pretty brutal for them.

Here in the Hill Country we got a late freeze, hail, and a fucking tornado.

    For the past two months I have been driving all over this state finding the smallest vineyards no one has ever heard of to get fruit from. One of the vineyards is right on the border near McAllen and has a border wall as it's south side fence. When I was there walking the vineyard, a group of Mexicans jumped the wall and ran off. We later found one of the guys laying under a tree, he had been bitten by a large rattlesnake and was on the verge of death.


    In short, I'm having a fucking blast.

    ACL is run by C3, FFF by Transmission. This is a presale being done by the Moody Theater where they do the shows for the Austin City Limits TV show. They host shows year round by both companies.

    Jack Black and Kyle Gass' music/comedy duo Tenacious D, Patton Oswalt, Craig Robinson ("The Office") and Rob Delaney will all peform as part of Fun Fun Fun Fest's comedy lineup, the festival announced Friday. A live version of The Eric André Show, Kyle Kinane, New York comedian and writer Hari Kondabolu and Kyle Dunnigan (Professor Blastoff) will also appear when the festival comes to Auditorium Shores from Nov. 8-10.

    The acts on the comedy lineup join the already announced music portion of the fest, which includes M.I.A, Slayer, Jurassic 5, FLAG and Television.

    The announcement comes a day before the Fun Fun Fun Fest Aqua Olympics, an afternoon of paddleboard jousting, tug-o-war and other activities at Fiesta Gardens. The festival will also begin selling a new version of its VIP pass, the Ultimate Smooth Pass, on Saturday. Three day passes are on sale now; single-day tickets go on sale in September.

    Also on the comedy lineup: Jonah Ray, the Altercation Punk Rock Comedy Hour, the New Movement Sketch Comedy Troupe, Air Sex Championship, Anarchy Championship Wrestling, and Veggie Hot Dog Eating Contest.

    Deltron 3030 added. Fuck yeah.

    EDIT* I saw that he played with a band in SF not too long ago. Is this a regular thing now or was that just a special occasion?
