Austin festival Sound on Sound announces inaugural lineup

Graham Williams, who is the founder of Austin’s beloved Fun Fun Fun Fest, split recently from Transmission Events, the concert-promoting company behind Fun Fun Fun Fest, and he began a new company called Margin Walker. Fun Fun Fun Fest may or may not happen this year still. But Williams began a new festival called Sound On Sound and it has practically taken over the Fun Fun Fun. The first Sound On Sound festival is going to be at Austin’s Sherwood Forest Faire 11/4-6, and it’s got an all-over-the-place lineup including Beach House, Phantogram, Run The Jewels, Big Boi, Purity Ring, Descendents, and local Austinites Explosions In The Sky.

Real Estate, Yo La Tengo, Guided By Voices and more auctioning songs for Surfer Blood’s Thomas Fekete

Thomas Fekete, the guitarist for Surfer Blood, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer this year. The band is now raising funds to cover the cost 0f treatment for Fekete by selling unreleased songs by various artists.

Surfer Blood, Real Estate, Yo La Tengo, Guided By Voices, Julianna Barwick, Cults, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, … And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Lou Barlow, Nick Diamonds, the Drums, the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, and Alex Somers (of Jónsi and Alex) all shared tracks. The tracks go from a GBV live cut from 1994 to a Cults outtake to a Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger song from 2009 when Mark Ronson was a member of the band. Nick Diamonds and Surfer Blood also contributed new songs.

Each track is being auctioned as a single lathe-cut vinyl 7″. All 13 tracks are available for download if you donate $10 or more. Find the tracklist below.

There are also items up for auction that have autographs from Yoko Ono and the Flaming Lips, Interpol and Shepard Fairey, Sleigh Bells, Sharon Van Etten, and Angel Olsen. Everything can be found here.

In May, Surfer Blood’s van was broken into as well. In addition to taking gear and personal items, the thieves also took donations that were collected for Fekete.
