Music Emissions Exclusive: Blake Anderson Interview

Our FFF coverage continues. Thanks to Twitter, we knew that television star Blake Anderson would be attending the fest in Austin. We originally thought he would only be present Sunday to see Slayer until we spotted him walking around Friday. Comedy Central‘s hit show Workalcoholics‘ has been a trendsetter, and we are big fans. I knew that a couple members of Odd Future Wolfgang had guest appearances in one episode. And obviously he was at this event, so had a hunch that the rising star was also a music lover. We got to chat about how the show got started, their previous jobs, his wide palette of musical tastes, and of course we had to find out his smoking preference. This was one of the few, maybe only, interviews that Uncle Blazer gave during the weekend.

FFF is officially wrapped up. What an unbelievably incredible weekend! You can read about yesterday here.

The fest, in it’s sixth year, may have reached perfection. It’s got the right size crowds, one of the most diverse line ups, and hasn’t yet sold out to the corporate man yet. As we made the 3 hour trek back home to Dallas, I felt (and still do) both overwhelmingly exhausted and exhilarated. We only had 3 people, but between us were able to catch another 15 shows yesterday, and a total of 40 for the entire weekend! Somehow we also managed to snag a few interviews along the way, including one with Workaloholics’ Blake Anderson.

Day 2 of FFF is a wrap, and we are exhausted.  You can read about it here.

Lucky for us we get an extra hour of sleep with the time change tonight, we are in desperate need of it!  We spent nearly 9 hours today watching 15 acts.  Nearly everyone was talking about the Danzig fiasco last night.  The size of the crowds has swollen as the weekend has started, and of course the biggest news of the day was that Ryan Gosling was on site for a new movie shooting on location, called Lawless.  Not only did we see him up close, throughout the day as we walked around backstage we spotted members of The Joy Formidable, Girls, The Thermals, Fat Tony, Wayne Cohen of The Flaming Lips, and even one member of Miike Snow.  Most of the shows we attended were picked by Pitchfork to be streamed, so I guess they have good taste to be at the same shows we picked.  Let’s recap all of the performances of the long day.

The first day of FFF is over–and what a day it was! You can read part 1 here.

We took in a total of 11 acts today: Fat Tony, Mind Spiders, Cloud Nothings, Auto Body, Black Milk, Okkervil River, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Passion Pit, Four Tet, Danzig Legacy, and Public Enemy. No, we didn’t watch all of the entire sets, but we enjoyed nearly everything we experienced. After all the shows, we were hanging in the media lounge, and were really near to Chuck D of Public Enemy and Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit. Wow, this still almost doesn’t feel real!

Hey everyone we are live at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011 in Austin! Day 1 is flying by really fast, so far we have seen 4 shows in a row: Fat Tony (hip hop from Houston), Mind Spiders (punk from Dallas/Ft. Worth), Cloud Nothings, and Black Milk (hip hop from Detroit). We weren’t planning on, nor did we previously know anything about, Auto Body from Austin. We only caught their last song, but wow what a performance! The duo are similar to Death From Above 1979, but less rock and more electronic/dance. That is one of the best things about festivals, as much research and planning as you do, you never know who you might see! Speaking of who you might see, we saw Blake Anderson, aka Uncle Blazer from the Comedy Central show Workaholics hanging out backstage! So far today, the best performances have probably been Fat Tony or Black Milk and Mind Spiders. Auto Body has had the best crowd reaction up to this point, that we have seen.

As far as interviews, so far this weekend we have confirmed interviews with Fat Tony, Cannibal Corpse, Architecture In Helsinki, and We Were Promised Jetpacks. Of course we hope to get more, keep your fingers crossed. Make you you check us out on both Twitter and Facebook to keep up with everything as it happens. Tonight we plan (hopefully) to see Okkervil River, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Public Enemy, and Passion Pit!

I’ve been following Yukon Blonde for a few years now and they’ve just released a nifty little EP called Fire/Water. It’s a handful of awesome tunes in the vein of My Morning Jacket or Band Of Horses but so much nicer harmonies. Check out this great video for the track “Water”. Makes me thirsty.
