Fun Fun Fun Nites are free, so you should go

AddThis

Fun Fun Fun Fest wristbands not only allow admittance into the festival, but admit festival-goers into Fun Fun Fun Nites for free. That’s right, for no extra money. Seventeen different stages around town will host more than 30 shows, from comedy and music to karaoke and dance contests. Here are some of the top events to check out.

 

FRIDAY

What: Beerland

Who: Thee Oh Sees, Small Black, Silk Rodeo and
Xander Harris

Why: Ride some sweet Austin smooth waves with Xander Harris and Silk Rodeo, catch a Brooklyn chill wave with Small Black and finally crash onto the beach where Thee Oh Sees will be bringing pulsing, San Francisco psychedelic rock ‘round the metaphorical campfire. Bathing suit optional. 

When: 10:15 p.m. 

 

What: Holy Mountain (inside)

Who: Antwon, Fat Tony, Kosha Dillz and P-Tek

Why: In the mood for hip-hop? Head inside Holy Mountain to see some of the hippest acts in underground rap. Find out why native Texan Fat Tony has been named Houston’s best underground rapper numerous times. Also, he loves Whataburger and
is wonderful.

When: 10:15 p.m.

 

What: Paramount and Stateside Theatres

Who: Sarah Silverman, Doug Benson and
Kyle Dunnigan

Why: Sometimes we all need a break from stinky musicians, so go check out some possibly better-smelling comedians. Watch Sarah Silverman still be funny, even though she’s not currently having sex with Matt Damon. Doug Benson will most likely utilize pot humor, and that could be fun too. 

When: 10 p.m.

 

SATURDAY

What: North Door

Who: The Men, Bleached, Hunters and Saint Rich

Why: This is a show for those who still need a punk fix from the Black Stage and don’t want to watch a Danzig-less Misfits hobble about the stage. This show is guaranteed to get both the post-hardcore dirge and sunny garage riffs flowing through your veins.

When: 10 p.m.

 

What: Red 7 (inside)

Who: DJ Jonathan Toubin and the Soul Clap Dance Off

Why: Jonathan Toubin hosts some of the most legendary rock and soul dance parties across the country. Toubin recently survived being hit by a cab as he slept in a hotel room and is back on his feet after an astounding and speedy recovery, bringing the joy of soul and dance to the hipster masses.

When: 9 p.m.

 

What: Mohawk

Who: Tenacious D, Craig Robinson, Jenny Slate and Matt Bearden

Why: Does anyone really need a reason to see Tenacious D? Go pay tribute to these hard-rocking comedians, even if you don’t have the pick of destiny, and see that Kyle indeed did not quit the band. Feel free to go to the drive-thru on your
way home.

When: 8 p.m.

 

SUNDAY

What: The Parish

Who: Bonobo (DJ set) and DJ Most Jeffinitely

Why: By Sunday night, you may be totally over the whole people-playing-instruments thing, so go to the Parish and watch other people playing electronic music. 

When: 10:30 p.m.

 

What: Mohawk (inside)

Who: Cayucas, Good Field, The Laughing and Growl

Why: Support local indie poppers (Cayucas may not be local, but definitely support them, too) to end your FFF Fest weekend. The night is guaranteed to keep your eardrums ringing and your head bopping.

When: 9 p.m.
