FunFunFun Fest Nites

As you know, the city of Austin has a strict 10:00pm curfew in all of its parks, regardless of what is taking place in said park. This means that after the final notes are played down at Auditorium Shores for FunFunFun Fest there are still about four hours until last call. Well, now you don't have to wonder what to do after the fest because today the Fun Fest aftershows have been revealed! This year, they are doing things a bit differently. You can't buy tickets to the individual aftershows but if you went to Fun Fest then you already paid admission to the nites events. How cool is that? Furthermore, since the Fest is at Auditorium Shore this year, all you have to do is hop on the number 10 bus headed North and it will take you within block of the Mohawk. No need to worry about parking or drinking and driving or any of that jazz. However, it should be noted that, in typical CapMetro fashion the bus runs on a much different, much less convenient schedule on Sunday so plan accordingly.

Right. So, if you want tickets to the FunFunFun Fest Nites shows, the easiest thing to do, is simply get tickets to the actualy festival. Otherwise, I've got more details below the break.

I was kind of thinking we might get a schedule of aftershows today BUT I'm fine with the info we did get. If I were you, I'd keep an eye on the Transmission Entertainment site for ticketing and/or the Fun Fest ticket store just in case individual show tickets end up going on sale. However, what I gather is that the aftershows will definitely be free for FunFunFun Fest attendees and (possibly) cheap for those of you not attending the festival. In the meantime, here's a list of the bands participating in aftershows, which I directly lifted from the official press release:
