Austinites Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 Picks: Adi Anand from the Mind of Adi

2010 November 3

Fun Fun Fun Fest is like Austin’s little secret music festival. Everything is bigger in Texas, so a “little” music festival still means it needs a roadmap and a hand guide.  With 3 days and 4 stages, Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 may be the funningest festival ever-especially if you like electronic, indie, hip-hop, metal and comedy.  And since the festival includes more emerging artists than you can shake a stick at, it can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve asked some of our favorite peeps in Austin to help interpret the line-up by sharing their Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 Picks!

If there’s one dude in this city that lies at the crux of the Austin music scene, it’s Adi Anand. And with reason: Adi’s outgoing personality and enthusiasm to promote local musicians is unchallenged. He’s seriously Austin’s #1 local music fan. Oh yeah, and we couldn’t be working with a better co-host at our Wednesday night weekly game night, Frank  Rec Room (plug plug).

Adi’s busy getting ready for Fun Fun Fun Fest, but he took a second to drop the bands he’s NOT going to miss. This is a good selection for fans who skew a little more towards mainstream rock.

Adi Anand’s Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 Picks:

“Weird Al” Yankovic: If you grew up in the ‘80s like I did, “Weird Al” had to make an impression of some sort. For me it was all positive. I wouldn’t dare miss this chance to see him live. His 1999 single “The Saga Begins” was extremely underrated in my opinion.

Monotonix: I’ve seen many a live show in my life but I really didn’t know what being massacred at a show meant until I saw Monotonix at The Mohawk one fateful evening in 2008. Probably one of the craziest shows you’ll ever see, don’t miss it!

Suicidal Tendencies: True story: my grandma bought me <em>Lights…Camera…Revolution</em> for my 14th birthday in 1991. Of course, she didn’t know that, she gave my cousin money to purchase some cassettes for me. It became one of my favorite albums of the era.

Eagle Claw: This local band’s bludgeoning instrumetal jams are a god send to a fans of the genre. I feel safe knowing that I can always catch a stellar metal show in town thanks to Eagle Claw. I’m super stoked they got picked to play Fun Fest, they deserve it.

MGMT:  This year is sure to be special for MGMT — they played Fun Fest 2007 in the afternoon to a meager crowd. Now they return as headliners to conquer all. Plus “Kids” is a true anthem for this generation.
