I’m really tired as I am writing this so please excuse any errors. It’s currently 1:30am and i know If I don’t write this now, I won’t later…
This weekend has been amazing for me so far. Friday night, Spoon held a private show to those who RSVP’d on their site the short time that it was available. It was an amazing show, I didn’t get too many videos because my battery died but I got a few, here’s my youtube channel.

Saturday I spent all day at auditorium shores where the FunFunFunFest is currently being held and I had the opportunity to see some great bands. I began the day over by the Orange Stage where Future Islands were performing. It was a great set, unfortunately they had a few tech problems at first but overall, it was great! Awesome way to start the afternoon.

Donald Glover performed on two different stages, one with his comedy act and the other with his alter-ego, Childish Gambino. Both shows were great! I was able to see him back in May and both times he did not disappoint. He played a few songs from his upcoming album, Camp. Check out some of my videos here.

I really wish I would have been able to catch M83, but it was during another show of mine. Hopefully I can catch them next time.
Oh, we also caught the last 10 minutes of Dan Deacon’s set, however when we looked on stage he was nowhere to be found, actually he was set up somewhere lost in the crowd. Who was on the stage though was Mr. Ryan Gosling. That also explains the high number of female attendees surrounding this particular stage. But, yeah, he was just there… jamming.
I caught Spoon’s act again tonight, I did not get any video of the event considering I already did the previous night and well, I just wanted to enjoy.
Overall, I had a lot of fun, there was
a bit of a dust problem throughout the day but fortunately for us they sold bandanas on site.
I really wish I would have had the change to see Passion Pit & Public Enemy’s performances on Friday but maybe I’ll catch them both next time their in central Texas.
Disappointed that ACL has come to an end? Can’t wait for SXSW? Well the Fun Fun Fun Festival is right around the corner and fast approaching. From November 4th to the 6th, the Fun Fun Fun Festival will be back for it’s 6th year and this time around it will be hosted at the Auditorium Shores. The FFF Fest will have four different stages dedicated to different genres, offering something for all music fans. The line up has a very diverse range of artists performing, from Slayer, to Public Enemy, Spoon, Childish Gambino, Ra Ra Riot, Odd Future, Neal Brennan, Blonde Redhead, Rakim and Passion Pit to name a few. Definitely something for everyone!
Previous lineups have included: MGMT, Slick Rick, Atmosphere, Gwar, Minus the Bear, GZA and more!
The Early bird tickets have been sold out, almost immediately but there are still 3-day and single day passes available. So I would suggest running over to their website ASAP!
Personally, I am looking forward to seeing Donald Glover, Neal Brennan and Reggie Watts on the Comedy stage.
Hope to see you guys there,
-Your Favorite Jedi.
