    From what I've heard from musicians in Austin, C3 is competitive as fuck and it wouldn't surprise me to see them make things as hard as they can for FFF Fest.

    QUESTION: How hard is it to catch public transpo/grab taxis in Austin during the fest? I'm wondering how close I should be attempting to stay to the Shores. Seems like the FFF Nights venues are not really walking distance from the Shores, so I,m thinking I should try to stay closer to 11th street?

    Actually, now that i'm looking at directions, I see it's only 1.5 miles to from the venue to Red 7, which is sort of walkable.

    If you are physically able to walk (not judging, some aren't), Auditorium Shores is a 13 minute walk to sixth street. There is no reason to consider transit or cabs, unless you are staying far from downtown.

    1/24/13 – Montreal, Canada

    Oh yeah! This was last year's flyer. Wristband gets you in for free, capacity being an issue of course.

    Nites was my favorite part of FFFFest last year. Superchunk. The Mind Spiders and Black Tusk were fantastic. Surfer Blood, Seaweed, Braid, and a bunch of others were great. No problems getting in and against the stage for me, but that gets way easier if you're by yourself, I think.

    I have been lamenting that their L.A. show is the first night of this. it would be amazing if they showed up. It would have to be Sunday though, since they're playing L.A. Friday, and Phoenix on Saturday...but with El Paso on Monday, it could work.

    Lineup announcement was middle of July last year. If FYF can get MBV, FFF certainly can.

    BTW, I'm pretty positive FLAG is playing. They had an interview for Consequence of Sound and among the few shows they listed they were playing in the future, they mentioned Austin being one of them and I'd be shocked if it wasn't FFF.
