TICKETS GO ON SALE AT 2PM CST

Transmission Entertainment is pleased to announce the lineup for the 2009 Fun Fun Fun Fest, taking place on November 7th and 8th at Waterloo Park in Austin. Fun Fun Fun Fest made its first appearance on a cold Friday evening in 2006, offering a unique approach to festival booking, filling stages with talent bubbling from the underground: what sounded great, and what was making an impact, regardless of what mainstream media said was cool. What started out as a show for a few touring acts and local favorites has become a movement — a festival that fans and bands alike realize needs to be experienced year after year.

Now in its fourth year, Fun Fun Fun Fest has made a significant impact on the country’s winter calendar, successfully combining the vast worlds of indie, punk, rap, electronica and comedy while showcasing some of the city’s most unique local businesses. It is the most relaxed, laid back and (yet) progressive festival in the market place today, a true urban event in the middle of downtown Austin. Most importantly it’s a fest we in the music community want to go to, without all of the filler that shows up at corporate music carnivals around the world. Fun Fun Fun Fest: the fest before the fest … where you go to see what’s about to happen as opposed to what’s already been done.

Each year, fans have been treated to sets by reunited legends as well as prominent acts from across the globe at the festival. And this edition is no different – music aficionados will be eagerly awaiting performances by DEATH, The Jesus Lizard, Shonen Knife, Mission of Burma, and Danzig. Of Montreal, King Khan & BBQ Show, GZA, No Age, Young Widows, Ratatat, Yeasayer, and The Cool Kids ensure that a wide variety of relevant artists will again be on display, and as always, Austin is well represented, this year by the likes of Shearwater, Foot Patrol, Black and White Years, The Laughing, Harlem, and Strange Boys.

In true Fun Fun Fun Fest fashion, fans can now learn about new music, research the line up, listen to MP3s, interact, enter contests, buy merchandise and more; simply by joining the new Fun Fun Fun Fest (http://www.funfunfunfest.comhttp://www.funfunfunfest.com) community online.

BUN B TO PERFORM INTIMATE MYSPACE RELEASE SHOW IN DALLAS, TX, AT TORCH ON AUGUST 1 NEW ALBUM II TRILL IN STORES NOW ON RAP-A-LOT/ASYLUM RECORDS

BUN B TO PERFORM INTIMATE MYSPACE RELEASE SHOW IN DALLAS, TX, AT TORCH ON AUGUST 1 NEW ALBUM II TRILL IN STORES NOW ON RAP-A-LOT/ASYLUM RECORDS

MySpace Music is proud to announce that Bun B will be performing a free show for his MySpace friends at Torch in Dallas, TX on August 1 – a show being powered by Saints Row 2. Celebrating his recently released album “II Trill,” Bun B will be returning to his home state of Texas to showcase his newly-christened material. Attendance is free for 21+ adults for the performance on a first come, first served basis starting at 10 p.m. on August 1.

Emerging from Port Arthur, Texas, as one-half of UGK (Underground Kingz) alongside the late Pimp C, Bun B has also made a name for himself as a hugely-successful solo artist in the hip-hop game. The three years between his debut solo album “Trill” and the present time have been turbulent for him but have provided inspiration for the wordplay featured on the highly-anticipated sequel “II Trill.” Since Pimp C’s death in 2007, Bun B’s solo career has taken on an entirely new meaning, and the new album, along with his continued popularity, are a testament to the type of impact he continues to have on Dirty South music and beyond. Featuring guest shots from the likes of Lil Wayne, Sean Kingston and others, “II Trill” is a statement that Bun B is able to carry on the spirit of UGK despite the absence of his partner in rhyme.
