Fun Fun Fun Fest 2014

Now in its ninth year, Fun Fun Fun Fest never fails to bring amazing bands and awesome times to Austin, TX. This year, Volcom teamed up with the music festival and brought the skating aspect of the party all the way up to eleven with their new ramp, the Super Collider. And with two Skaters of the Year on deck, there was no shortage of air time to keep the spectators happy. Three days of cold Shiner beer, tons of tunes and a skate ramp that looked like a Hot Wheels track made this year's festival one for the books. If you missed it, don't worry. Next year's will probably be even more bananas. Texas is the reason…

  • Mononeon Interview

    Mononeon Interview
    The term "musical prodigy" doesn't quite capture the bass-playing abilities of Mononeon. It's more accurate to say he's one of the best to ever pick up the instrument. See for yourself.

  • Run The Jewels Interview

    Run The Jewels Interview
    Not many musical acts bridge the gap between hip-hop's "Golden Era" and those who seek fresh new sounds. Run The Jewels stands tall over this divide. Killer Mike and El-P already each had a rich legacy and their combined forces have produced something unique.

    The Shrine's "Born To Waste Away" Music Video
    The Shrine’s raw new music vid pushes back on the American Dream in LA and helps give funds to protestors for legal aid. Bump this on your next bowl session. 
  • Hacksaw Interview

    Hacksaw Interview
    Hacksaw's music is not here for your enjoyment. It exists to pummel you into submission. We caught up with these heavy noise makers, but we were particularly curious about guitarist/skater Mike Hell's perspective and ethics of eating garbage straight from the can.
