We're now scheming ways to get to Austin, Texas early this November - sure, escaping the dreary weather up north will be a bonus, but our real target is the city's yearly Fun Fun Fun Fest, who just announced their amazing lineup for 2013. Though its hilariously diverse trio of headliners, MGMT, Slayer, and M.I.A., could pretty much instantly motivate anyone to buy tickets, the rest of the lineup's incredibly solid as well: Descendents, Cut Copy, the Walkmen, Death Grips, Ice-T (!), Television (!!!), Chromatics, Deerhunter, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Mykki Blanco, and more. The whole thing goes down at Austin's Auditorium Shores November 8 through 10 - hopefully, we'll see you there!
