Fun Fun Fun Fest 2008 Redux

Though Jane previewed this fabulous fest, it is now time to review it! This was my first year at the Fun Fun Fun Fest, and I can honestly add it to my list of reasons why I love Austin. I did a vlog about it, so that is forthcoming, but I wanted to briefly mention some bands I loved so I could link to them:  Bishop Allen on day one were fantastic, and the lead singer reminded me of Paul Simon, which is always a plus; The National on the first day blew me away, and it was especially moving that this was their last live show for a while; day two was dominated in my heart and mind by the Delware-ians, The Spinto Band – AMAZING, people; St. Vincent was the rockin’est female guitarist that I saw the entire festival; and finally, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah were energetic, great musicians and a ton of fun.

Now watch as I embarass myself with my sad, sad editing skillz. *NOTE* that Tim Barry from the Revival Tour does use profanity in his short segment, so when I introduce that in the video, you are welcome to fast forward through that part if it offends you. I just couldn’t leave it out, because I loved what he was saying!



Austin Weather?

The weather today is ridiculous. To quote Lewis Black, “It’s not weather, it’s malaria.” (Also, they should really put “video” in the course description. I did not sign up for this… hahaha)
