Fun Fun Fun Fest 2015 Preview

The festival season isn’t over until the Live Music Capitol of the World says it is, and closing it out as always is the always-awesome Fun Fun Fun Fest, Friday-to-Sunday, November 6th-8th:



Orange Stage


Scottish electro-pop outfit CHVRCHES (QRO live review) have gotten very big very fast (QRO photos at a festival), before & after the release of debut full-length The Bones of What You Believe (QRO review) – but are fronted by the tiny Lauren Mayberry (QRO photos at a festival) and some giant lights (QRO photos at a festival).
Cheap Trick, 7:15 PM

Fun Fun Fun Fest has long had classic punk bands – how about a classic rock band? Cheap Trick (QRO photos) are certainly classics, with songs like “I Want You To Want Me” and “Surrender”. While never as big in America as they are in Japan (epitomized in their Live at Budokan album – QRO live review of 35th anniversary performance), they’re still one of our classics (QRO photos at a festival).
Cheap Trick

From At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta (QRO album review), complex rockers Omar Rodriguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala last year formed ANTEMASQUE. They recorded their self-titled debut with Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass, and are touring with Travis Barker of Blink-182 on drums.
Toro y Moi, 4:45 PM

One of the ‘big names’ in ‘chillwave’, Chazwick Bundick – a.k.a. Toro y Moi (QRO photos) – had one of the new genre’s touchstone records in 2011 in Causers of This (QRO review), but has since moved to a more rock-oriented sound, especially live (QRO photos). He comes back to Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos), behind this year’s What For?, following 2013’s Anything In Return (QRO review).
Toro Y Moi
Viet Cong, 3:35 PM

Containing half of Calgary’s defunct Women (QRO photos at a festival), the band formerly known as Viet Cong (QRO photos at a festival) bring a “labyrinthine post-punk” to Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Viet Cong
Mikal Cronin, 2:25 PM

Alt-garage utility player Mikal Cronin (QRO photos at a festival) has emerged as a force in his own right (QRO photos at a festival), most recently with last spring’s MCIII.

ScHoolboy Q, 8:45 PM

Hip-hop artist Quincy Matthew Hanley – a.k.a. ScHoolboy Q (QRO photos at a festival) – followed up 2011’s acclaimed Setbacks with 2012’s Habits & Contradictions and last year’s Oxymoron. He plays Fun Fun Fun Fest for a second time.
ScHoolboy Q
Rae Sremmurd, 7:35 PM

Atlanta hip-hop brother duo of Khalif ‘Swae Lee’ & Aaquil ‘Slim Jimmy’ Brown team up as Rae Sremmurd (QRO photos at a festival).
Rae Sremmurd
Hudson Mohawke, 6:25 PM

Glasgow’s turntablist Ross Birchard, a.k.a. Hudson Mohawke, managed to get signed to acclaimed U.K. electronic imprint Warp despite few actual releases, but delivered in 2009’s Butler and a few EPs before also getting signed to Kanye West’s own GOOD Music after working some collaborations with West.
Hudson Mohawke
Peaches, 5:10 PM

‘Sexually explicit’ doesn’t begin to cover the gender-bending extravagance of Peaches (QRO photos), from albums like Fatherfucker, Impeach My Bush, I Feel Cream, and this year’s Rub, to her backing band, The Herms (short for hermaphrodites); her stage show – including attire – is even more extreme. She returns after playing the very first Fun Fun Fun Fest, back in 2006.

Coheed & Cambria, 8:45 PM

Sort of a successor to the storytelling complex prog-rock of the likes of Rush (not that the originals have gone anywhere…), Nyack, New York’s Coheed & Cambria (QRO live review) combine that complex prog-rock with post-hardcore heaviness – to tell singer Claudio Sanchez’s epic Amory Wars story, spanning six concept albums. Phish’s Gamehendge has nothing on Amory Wars!

However, the band comes to Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival) after the release of The Color Before the Sun, their first non-concept record since their inception.
Coheed & Cambria
Drive Like Jehu, 7:25 PM

San Diego post-hardcore act Drive Like Jehu established a cult following, but broke up too soon, so thankfully they reunited last year.
Drive Like Jehu
Converge, 6:05 PM

Salem’s Converge have brought together punk & metal into the metalcore witch’s brew since the early nineties, finding themselves on major punk label Epitaph with All We Love We Leave Behind, and now return to Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Babes In Toyland, 4:55 PM

Babes In Toyland helped define the Riot Grrrl sound of the nineties (even if they never associated with that movement). They broke up just after the nineties ended, but 2015 has seen a nascent reunion at festivals (QRO photos at a 2015 festival).
Babes In Toyland
Parquet Courts, 3:45 PM

Bringing grunge back has been the active Parquet Courts (QRO photos at a festival), who come to Fun Fun Fun Fest off of last year’s critical & commercial hit, Sunbathing Animal.

Blacksnake, a.k.a. King Khan (who also front King Khan & The Shrines – QRO live review) teams up with Mark Sultan, a.k.a. BBQ, as the wild King Khan & BBQ Show (QRO photos).
The King Khan & BBQ Show
Benjamin Booker, 6:35 PM

The neo-garage of Benjamin Booker (QRO photos at a festival) isn’t that special, but is getting him attention.
Benjamin Booker
TOPS, 5:30 PM

Fun Fun Fun Fest gets a softer side of Montreal in TOPS (QRO photos at a festival).
Tig Notaro, 4:25 PM

One of the most acclaimed of today’s modern stand-up comics, Tig Notaro is coming off huge accomplishments like her Netflix movie Tig, HBO comedy special Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted, getting married, and beating cancer (which featured in a special Town Hall show that she did topless, post-double mastectomy).
Tig Notaro
Kurt Braunohler, 3:55 PM

A frequent collaborator with Kristen Schaal (QRO photos), comedian and host Kurt Braunohler (QRO photos) comes to Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Kurt Braunohler
Chris Cubas, 3:40 PM

Last spring, Austin’s own Chris Cubas won @midnight’s #PointsMe challenge and earned a right to appear on the show, returning in the summer. But Fun Fun Fun Fest attendees have known about him for years, as he’s played the festival in 2012 and 2008 (QRO photos).
Chris Cubas
Altercation Punk Comedy Tour, 3:00 PM

Cubas appeared in 2008 as part of the Altercation Punk Comedy Tour (QRO photos at FFF ’08), which is a great mash-up for the music & comedy Jash Yellow Stage.
Altercation Punk Rock Comedy
Eugene Mirman, 2:30 PM

The alt-comedy world of today gets a whole lot of exposure at Fun Fun Fun Fest, including the man who maybe did more than anyone else to found it, stand-up artist Eugene Mirman (QRO photos). He’s no stranger to sharing a stage with musicians, such as opening for She & Him (QRO live review) and previously (QRO photos) for the first performance by Julian Plenti (QRO live review of that show), a.k.a. Paul Banks of Interpol (QRO live review). He’s also no stranger to festivals, as he’s thrown his own comedy festival in Brooklyn for years now (QRO recap). Oh, and he’s Gene Belcher on FOX’s Bob’s Burgers.

Mirman (QRO interview) comes back to Fun Fun Fun Fest behind his new mammoth release (on music label Sub Pop), I’m Sorry (You’re Welcome), which features everything from stand-up to over 45 minutes of crying, 195 orgasms, a lesson in Russian, and much more (QRO photos from the album release party).

Orange Stage

Jane’s Addiction, 8:30 PM

One of the first bands to emerge from the early nineties alternative music scene, you knew Jane’s Addiction’s break-up right at their height of popularity in 1991 would never knew last. They’ve since reunited not once, not twice, but thrice! Starting in 2008, all four original members got back together for the first time since the first break-up, joining Nine Inch Nails on the ‘NIN/JA’ tour (QRO photos outdoors), playing the classics. Admittedly 2011’s new The Great Escape Artist was not that great (which is why bassist Eric Avery left before it was made), but the classics still are, and they come out in force at their live shows (QRO live review), with the band’s gaudy, extreme, alt-sexual antics (QRO photos). Oh, and singer/frontman Perry Farrell basically invented the alternative music festival with his original Lollapalooza (QRO 2015 recap), so you know they know how to do a festival right (QRO photos from a festival)…
Jane's Addiction
Ride, 7:00 PM

When Liam Gallagher’s post-Oasis Beady Eye (QRO photos) broke up last year, people weren’t wondering if he’d get back together with brother Noel (who’s having his own successful solo career – QRO live review), but instead if guitarist Andy Bell would reunite with his first band, Ride (QRO live review). Their early nineties output was as essential to shoegaze as anything My Bloody Valentine did, and MBV reunited…

And so has Ride (QRO photos) for a stellar reunion tour this year, including Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival).
American Football, 5:40 PM

One of the founding bands of emo, American Football reunited last year and has kept that going into Fun Fun Fun.
American Football
Fuzz, 4:30 PM

Ty Segall (QRO album review) has worked with many others (such as White Fence – QRO photos at a festival), and at Fun Fun Fun Fest teams up with Charles Moonheart as Fuzz (QRO photos at a festival).
The Charlatans, 3:20 PM

Playing Fun Fun Fun Fest is perennial U.K. hits The Charlatans (QRO photos). Fronted by singer Tim Burgess (QRO photos at a festival), the group has been belting out alt-rock hits for over two decades now, most recently with this year’s Modern Nature.
The Charlatans
Speedy Ortiz, 2:20 PM

There’s tons of buzz around Brooklyn’s Speedy Ortiz (QRO photos at a festival), who come to Fun Fun Fun Fest behind debut Foil Deer.
Speedy Ortiz
Joanna Gruesome, 1:20 PM

Not a woman but a band (with feminist views) is the five-piece Joanna Gruesome (QRO photos at a festival).


A Giant Dog, 12:30 PM

Joanna Gruesome

Blue Stage

Wu-Tang Clan, 8:45 PM

“Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothing to fuck with!” The Staten Island outfit (QRO photos at a festival) was the hip-hop collective of the nineties, spawning the careers of the likes of RZA (QRO photos at a festival), GZA, Method Man, Raekwon (QRO photos at a festival), Ghostface Killah (QRO live review), and more. As fearless as they are skilled, Wu-Tang is arguably the greatest rap group ever. Their members have done much else (not just singing – RZA released his directorial debut, Russell Crowe kung-fu flick The Man with the Iron Fists), but have been getting the band back together (save for the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard), and last year all together put out A Better Tomorrow.
Wu-Tang Clan
Grimes, 7:25 PM

Scandinavian singer/songstresses have gotten very hot, from Lykke Li (QRO album review) openers of hers like Oh Land (QRO album review) and now Grimes (QRO photos opening for Lykke Li) – though Grimes, a.k.a. Claire Boucher (QRO photos at a festival), is actually from Canada. Still, her ethereal indie-pop on 2012’s Visions (QRO review) and this year’s Art Angels certainly hews to the Scando-sound (QRO live review), and she’s just as pretty and charming as any Nordic (QRO photos at a festival). Plus her profile was serious raised when she signed to Jay-Z’s new management company, Roc Nation.
Neon Indian, 6:15 PM

Alan Palomo worked solo as VEGA (QRO photos at FFF ‘11) and recruited a live band as Neon Indian (QRO photos at the same FFF), where he’s far stronger (QRO photos with his band), especially outdoors (QRO photos outdoors with band) & at a festival (QRO photos at a festival with band). He comes back to Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos) after the release of VEGA INTL. Night School, his latest since 2011’s Era Extraña, and after touring colleges (QRO live review), museums (QRO photos), Down Under (QRO live review), and more (QRO photos).

Black Stage

NOFX, 8:45 PM

If you don’t want to be all high-minded and serious, go the exact opposite direction with NOFX (QRO photos). The ska-punkers have turned cheeky fart jokes into a musical career for decades now, most recently on 2012’s Self Entitled and 2009’s Coaster (QRO review).
Gogol Bordello, 7:15 PM

From Eastern Europe & elsewhere, through the Lower East Side comes ‘gypsy punks’ Gogol Bordello (QRO live review). The many, many-person outfit is fronted by singer/guitarist Eugene Hutz (also of the film version of Everything Is Illuminated), but there’s so much going on on-stage, you won’t know where to look (QRO photos outdoors). The band followed up debut Underdog World Strike with the not-quite-as-impressive Super Taranta! (QRO review) in 2007, and even less so with 2010’s Trans-Continental Hustle (QRO review), but were revived in 2013 on Pure Vida Conspiracy (QRO review) – and the band still brings it live (QRO live review), including at festivals (QRO photos at a festival).
Gogol Bordello
American Nightmare, 5:55 PM

Boston hardcore punks Give Up the Ghost, or American Nightmare (or just A.N…) broke up just as they were getting success, but have since seen an out-of-court settlement from Fall Out Boy for getting their lyrics stolen, and now come to Fun Fun Fun Fest under their original name.
American Nightmare
Archers of Loaf, 4:30 PM

Amidst all of the alt-reunions, how are Archers of Loaf (QRO photos at a festival) only reuniting now (QRO photos at a festival)? The Chapel Hill act were as important to the nineties alternative music scene as Pavement (QRO live review), and deserve as great a reunion tour (QRO photos at a festival).
Archers of Loaf
Fucked Up, 3:20 PM

While Holy Fuck (QRO live review) lost the Polaris Music Prize in 2008, that kind of a name didn’t stop Fucked Up from winning it the following year with Chemistry of Common Life (though it almost derailed the Pool Parties at Williamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn – QRO photos), and the band followed that up with singles collection Couple Tracks (QRO review) and 2011’s concept rock opus, David Comes to Life. Whether their hardcore music lives up to praise rarely given to hardcore is still up for debate, but what isn’t is how nuts the crowd goes (QRO photos at a festival) for this act out of Toronto (QRO photos outdoors), with singer/frontman Damian Abraham bringing it (QRO live review), shirtless and crazy (QRO photos at a festival). They come back to Fun Fun Fun Fest after last year’s release of Glass Boys.

Murder By Death, 7:40 PM

Murder By Death (QRO photos) have kept it up well since emerging out of college town Bloomington, Indiana. They’ve got a loyal fan base who will be out in force, while the band mixes between older material and tracks from this year’s Big Dark Love, 2012’s Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon, and 2010’s Good Morning, Magpie (QRO review).

Orange Stage

Ms. Lauryn Hill, 8:15 PM

Welcome back, Ms. Lauryn Hill (QRO photos)! Originally a member of nineties hip-hop/soul breakthrough collective The Fugees, Hill broke out on her own in a huge way with 1998’s solo debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, which debuted at number one, swept the Grammys, and made Hill an international celebrity.

However, all that attention took its toll, and after 2001’s far less acclaimed or successful MTV Unplugged No. 2.0 Hill’s appearances and releases became sporadic and erratic, and she still has yet to release a proper solo follow-up. Things seemed to hit a nadir a few years ago, when she not only infuriated fans by showing up hours late to her own shows, but was convicted of tax evasion and served a three-month prison stint.

But since then Hill has majorly bounced back, on-time and out there, and with that she comes to headline Sunday at Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival).
Ms. Lauryn Hill
Chromeo, 6:35 PM

There are combos and then there are combos: Montreal’s Chromeo (QRO live review) are the electro-funk duo of Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) and P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) has been best friends since childhood (QRO live review), billing themselves as, “The only successful Arab/Jewish collaboration since the beginning of time” (but what is their stance on Québécois independence?…). And their electronica works outdoors (QRO photos outdoors), day or night (QRO live review), even at a festival (QRO photos at a festival). They come Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival) with their great show (QRO live review), now after the release of last year’s White Women (QRO review).
The Growlers, 5:10 PM

From Dana Point in California, The Growlers (QRO photos at a festival) mix major effects with sixties psychedelic rock to make ‘Beach Goth’.
The Growlers
Alvvays, 4:10 PM

New U.K. indie hit Alvvays (QRO live review in the U.K.) comes to America (QRO photos at a festival) to play at Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos outdoors).

Future Islands, 7:25 PM

Baltimore’s Future Islands (QRO photos) play a highly acclaimed, darker form of synth-pop (QRO photos at a festival) as they come back to the Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival).
Future Islands

While Sebastien Grainger took the punk side of acclaimed & recently reunited Toronto act Death From Above 1979 (QRO live review) in solo career (QRO album review), the other half of DFA1979, Jesse F. Keeler, went electro-house with new partner Al-P.
Big Freedia, 5:00 PM

Just as the post-Katrina rebuilding of New Orleans has been taking a while, so has the post-Katrina (re)discovery of New Orleans music – but one of the biggest & best to come out of the Big Easy is bounce music, mixing hip-hop with local dance and Mardi Gras call-and-response, and one of the biggest & best in bounce is Big Freedia (QRO photos at a festival), with the big asses (QRO photos) that set the world twerking record, starred in their own FUSE series, and is also teaching FFF how to twerk (QRO photos) (see below)
Big Freedia
Doomtree, 3:55 PM

The Minneapolis based hip-hop collective is made up of P.O.S., Sims, Dessa, Mictlan, Cecil Otter, Paper Tiger, and Lazerbeak. The music is alternative influenced, and sports definite remnants of punk. As energetic as they are introspective, Doomtree (QRO photos) boasts a wide array of talent.

Venom, 8:45 PM

The Black Stage welcomes the band that literally invented ‘black metal’, Venom, who gave the genre it’s name with their second album, 1982’s Black Metal. The group has gone through ups and downs (and line-up changes) since then, but are still a dark standard for thrash.
L7, 7:15 PM

2015 has been the year of the Riot Grrrl reunion, thanks to the return of the likes of Sleater-Kinney (QRO live review), Babes In Toyland (see above), and L7 (QRO photos at a festival).
Dag Nasty, 5:55 PM

Out of Washington, D.C.’s acclaimed straight edge eighties punk scene, Dag Nasty hewed to a more melodic form that might have been out of step with that world, but helped influenced the later rise of emo. The group plays a rare reunion show at Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Dag Nasty
Chain of Strength, 4:35 PM

Southern California straight edge hardcore late eighties act Chain of Strength reunites at Fun Fun Fun Fest.
Chain of Strength
OFF!, 3:20 PM

Los Angeles’ own Keith Morris worked in seminal punk outfits Circle Jerks (QRO live review) & Black Flag and now he’s got a newer outfit in OFF! (QRO photos at a festival – with members of Redd Kross, Rocket From the Crypts & more), but don’t worry – he plays the old classics, too. They come to Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival) behind last year’s, Wasted Years.

The Toronto trio BADBADNOTGOOD (QRO photos at a Toronto festival) are known for incorporating hip-hop into their music, and have collaborated with the Odd Future (QRO live review) likes of Tyler, the Creator (QRO album review) and Frank Ocean, and most recently the one-and-only Ghostface Killah (QRO photos together at a festival) – who also plays FFF with his ‘other’ band, Wu-Tang Clan – see above – with Sour Soul.

Steve Gunn
Andrew W.K., 4:40 PM

No artist in this millennium has done as many different things, worked with as many different people, while staying true to who he is, than Andrew W.K. (QRO photos). He started as a party-rock impresario with 2001’s I Get Wet and “Party Hard”, but has since built a wide list of accomplishments, from founding his own NYC venue, Santos Party House (QRO venue review), to doing self-help & motivational speaking, his own MTV series (and guest-appearing on Adult Swim’s Aqua Teen Hunger Force), playing with a classical string quartet (QRO photos), hosting the World Snowboarding Championship in Oslo in 2012 (QRO kick-off review), and even bringing I Get Wet back for its tenth anniversary (QRO live review of I Get Wet show). The hard-partying, hard-working man comes to Fun Fun Fun Fest (QRO photos at a festival) on his latest tour (QRO live review).
Andrew W.K.
Twerking Lessons with Big Freedia, 4:05 PM

If you’re gonna learn how to twerk – and a lot of white people need to learn how to do it right – learn from New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia (QRO photos teaching people how to twerk at a festival), who also plays Fun Fun Fun Fest proper (see above).
Big Freedia’s Twerk Lesson
Todd Barry, 3:15 PM

In the New York alternative music scene, there’s no more ubiquitous stand-up comic than Todd Barry (QRO photos at a festival). The laid-back comedian has opened for Tapes n’ Tapes (QRO album review), Superchunk (QRO live review) and They Might Be Giants (QRO photos from that show), been seen at CMJ (QRO recap), SXSW (QRO recap) & the old McCarren Park Pool Parties (QRO venue review). So he’ll fit right in at Fun Fun Fun Fest.
