    Anyone book lodging for this yet? Strategy/location? I was pretty happy at the La Quinta downtown last year, it was a decent walk to the Fest,(I met Bob Mould walking to the Fest one day) but the Nites shows were only a couple blocks away and a couple block walk home at the end of the night is fucking awesome. Room was fine, not amazing, but fine. Shuttle roundtrip from the airport was $20 maybe? I'm leaning toward the same area downtown, the same hotel if need be.

    Deerhunter is a good get.

    I am hoping they land MBV, NMH, and YYYs.

    MBV is playing Austin in August--one of only 5 US dates around FYF. It's kind of hard to believe they'd go back there so soon.

    NMH is playing Australia on Nov.10. I think travel time and the International Date Line make it fairly impossible for them to play in Austin on the 8th or 9th.

    Damn I hadn't done any research so I was just throwing 3 names out that I hoped to see when the lineup is released. FFF always does a good job so I expect it to be a good lineup. YYYs and MBV would be a mirror of FYF so that would be weird anyways.

    Bonobo's going to be live, right? I hear his DJ sets are rad... but his live shows are apparently on an entirely different level.

    I stayed at the Embassy Suites only a couple blocks from the fest. I have already booked my room there for 2013.

    Tycho's new dates make him seem likely. This is shaping up quite nicely!

    FYI there are a ton of cheap airbnb places on the south side of the river near the venue. Lots of things for under $100/night. People haven't started inflating prices for their rental homes during FFF like they do during ACL and SXSW yet.

    Drinkey, would that kind of rental be comfortably walkable to Red River/6th area? I realize this is dependent on the location of the rental, etc., but the Nites shows really sold the festival for me and I would hate to wimp out on some of those shows because of the walk there and back after all day at the festival. The La Quinta was okay amenities wise but the location, through dumb luck, really worked for me. Walked to the festival at my leisure during the day, then the Nites stuff was kinda on the way home. Of course, I do have the option of just not being a pussy or cab or pedicab. On that note, pedicabs really didn't want to take me to the Mohawk immediately following the festival, for some reason.

    The place i booked is 1.7 miles to Red River/6th. There are places that are closer though, plenty of them on first. Airbnb lets search by location on a map, so it's pretty easy. I have never been to this fest, but i am going with full intention of seeing the city/taking advantage of FFF Nights while there and definitely considered it while looking for lodging. There weren't very many choices on the north side of the river close to anything though. I walk a LOT though so i'm not too worried about it, and if i'm dying hopefully i can try to catch a bus/cab at the end of the nights. Finding a place for $100/night including continental breakfast and free beer was too good to pass up.
