From The City Full of Sound: Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 Recap

Fun Fun Fun Fest is appropriately named. It’s just downright fun. The crowd is older, the bands are better, the venue is calmer and the security is way nicer than any other fest ever. Every year I become more and more of a Fun Fun advocate. Here’s my personal highlights:

Day 1 –  Here we go!

We ran interviews with bands out of the Redbull Senicruiser which was pretty swanky and…all the free Red Bull I could drink. I was quite wired. Here’s some pics from the grounds.

Got to interview Jim Ward from At the Drive-In, Sleepercar & More. We bonded over West Texas love. Check out my interview with him HERE

Danced my pants off at Passion Pit. They ruled so hard

Lykke Freaking Li. She was my highlight. So…amazing.


Day 3 – Tired but dancing

I’m old ya’ll. I fade fast at these things now. The few things I was able to catch on Day 3 though were pretty rad. I’d have to say, Architecture in Helsinki was def worth meeting and seeing live.
