Weezer bounced through Austin on Tuesday December 2nd to play a not-surprisingly sold out show for local radio station 101X's holiday party. The band took the stage a tore through a stacked set in just an hour and a half. While Rivers Cuomo wasn't the most enthused version of himself, fans went away happy, especially those who had picked up and fallen in love with the band's newest album Everything Will Be Alright in The End. Take a peek at a few photos from the show in the comments, as well as a link to a full gallery.

Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest just wrapped up it's 9th year of festing, but still got off to a rocky start this weekend when will-call ticket holders had to wait up to 5 hours just to get their wristbands. The festival didn't provide any refunds, but did apologize profusely via social media. As some one who picked up her wristband early, I had nothing but positive experiences at FFF this weekend. The sound was big, the crowd was weird, and the food was delicious. Check out a handful of photos and blurbs below, as well as a link to a full gallery!

Oklahoma City punks, Red City Radio, played at Austin's Red 7 on Friday October 10th to a small but rowdy crowd. Openers Threes Away and Direct Hit! were some of the most solid openers I had seen in a while. Check out photos of Red City Radio in the comments.
