When you name put as many funs in your name as Fun Fun Fun Fest does, it better be good. Fortunately, the Austin based music festival usually does a good job living up to its name. After all, the 2009 edition, scheduled to take place from November 7-8, certainly exemplifies this fact, as organizers have once again put together one amazingly solid, incredibly eclectic lineup that can’t help but, well, result in some fun.
The Jesus Lizard, Of Montreal, Mission of Burma, Ratatat, The Pharcyde, and Destroyer head the recently unveiled 2009 bill. Other acts of note include Danzig, Yeasayer, Fucked Up, The Cool Kids, Wu Tang’s GZA performing Liquid Swords, The King Khan & BBQ Show, Lucero, Why?, and No Age.
