So i’ve been living in glorious (and hot) Austin, TX for just over 2 months. And I realized, that I’ve been working so much that I haven’t really been able to enjoy Austin in all it’s glory — not to mention that I haven’t been making any $$$ to fund my adventures.

One of the things that Austin is known for, other than delicious texmex, is MUSIC. duh. and have been to see one show?? other than outdoor free jams, the one attempt i had at seeing a show failed miserably. (Well, to be honest, had i stayed and tried to scalp tickets for Passion Pit just a little bit longer i would have not only gotten in, but for FREE as did the people who i went with… but i guess that it’s now spilt milk, water under the bridge…)

Which makes me extra excited for Fun Fun Fun Fest! The low-fi version of ACL, it’s taking place on November 7th and 8th, and I definitely plan on intending. Some of the line-up has recently been “leaked.” And while I don’t know most of the cast, I am excited about potentially seeing Broadcast. This is from their first EP, The Book Lovers:

and Les Savy Fav, of course, always a crowd favorite. (this video starts off really cute, but then half way through it gets preeeeeetty repetitive):
