Local Fun

By Kevin Curtin, Fri., Nov. 8, 2013

Phranchyze (Fri., 12:10pm, Blue stage)

This battle-tested MC has confidence and character as dictated by his aliases: "The Black Larry Bird" and "Phranye West."

Spray Paint (Fri., 12:20pm, Black stage)

Angular, bassless trio brewing highly caffeinated post-punk.

The Impossibles (Fri., 4:05pm, Black stage)

Nineties ska and power-pop, the Imps recorded for trendsetters Fueled by Ramen and reunited last year after a decade apart.

Bill Callahan (Fri., 7:30pm, Yellow stage)

The introverted bard, formerly Smog, now crafts his career's most delicate and intelligent work, including newbie Dream River.

LNS Crew (Sat., 11:55am, Blue Stage)

Unequivocally badass crew of Austin rappers and producers: Cory Kendrix, Tank, Kydd, Deezie Brown, and DJ Charlie.

Frank Smith (Sat., noon, Orange stage)

Nineties rock captained by talented songwriter Aaron Sinclair, not Frank Smith.

Roger Sellers (Sat., 12:45pm, Blue stage)

DJ and multi-instrumentalist who crafts dense, ambient electronica with a head-bobbing, indie-pop element.

Ola Podrida (Sat., 12:50pm, Orange stage)

Soundtrack maestro David Wingo's indie-rock band cranks up the volume on latest release Ghosts Go Blind.

Wild Child (Sun., 6:25pm, Yellow stage)

War-painted folk-poppers capitalize on the adorable interplay of baritone uker Alexander Beggins and fiddler Kelsey Wilson.

Daniel Johnston (Sun., 7:35pm, Yellow stage)

Much-loved Texan, whose struggles with bipolar disorder and the "Hi, How Are You" mural overshadow his beautiful pop.
