This past weekend I attended Fun Fun Fun Fest and saw some nostalgic acts. Friday night I left the festival to attend Taking Back Sunday's Tell All Your Friends 10th Anniversary Tour. The album, like a few others, holds a special place in my lifetime, and that place in sappy crater I call a love life. You can read my thoughts on my personal attachment to the record here. I invite you all to share your own stories and albums or songs that go with them. I don't want to turn the front page into 'Personal Life' today, but I think we can make a pretty cool mixtape of stories to end the week nonetheless. Or you can just head to the replies and call me a dork, either way, I hope you enjoy it.

The weekend of triple fun is now over. After sets from Braid, The Promise Ring and Refused, among many many others, I'm still a bit overwhelmed by it all. Hit the replies to read user Dustin Harkins and I's final write-ups. You can head to our Facebook page to check out a full set of photos from the weekend from photographer Sara Strick. Also be sure to check out Purevolume's full gallery from the weekend as well. Fugazi? Jawbreaker? Unwound? Harkonen? Who knows what next year will bring, but I'll be patiently waiting for the Fall of 2013 regardless. Seriously, please Harkonen, please!

What a hell of a first day at this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest. You can check out a couple of photos from the day over on our Facebook page. Head to the replies to see not only my review, but Dustin Harkins review of the festival as well, who will be down here with me all weekend. Refused, Braid, David Cross and much much more today. I'd bring a bandana if you're hanging out towards the Black Stage today. More than enough dirt and dust is getting stirred up down there.

Good morning from Austin, TX. Today starts the first day of the seventh annual Fun Fun Fun Fest. Last night I saw great sets from Superchunk, Dwarves and The Impalers. Be sure to follow me through the weekend on our new Instagram feed: @absolutepunk. I'll be making plenty of snide remarks which may not reflect the views of this site through my Twitter here. If you're down here for the weekend, be sure to say "Hi!" and come pit with me during Converge tonight. I'm just kidding, I don't want to be killed the first day, but I'll see you there, I'll be the old guy in the back.

Have you ever wanted to know what Jason Tate's least favorite genre of music is? How about which unsigned bands Drew Beringer would sign? What would Eda eat for a last meal? You can find these answers and much more in Part II of our Staff Interview, which you can read here. Did you miss the first part? You can read Part I here. Thanks for all your questions, and we'll do it again this time next year.

We're excited to be streaming the re-release of To The Wind's debut EP, No More Than This, out on Pure Noise Records, November 6th. No strangers to those who live in the Northwest, the band packs a powerful punch that will please fans of The Ghost Inside, It Prevails, and It Dies Today. Even if you consider yourself a casual fan of agressive music, this EP is a must listen. Head on down to the band's AP.net profile to check it out. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the record here.

You can check out our interview with Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. here. Be sure and check out them in your area when they come through, and pick up Murdered Love, out now on Razor & Tie.
From The InterviewI think it's idolatry, you know what I mean? It's like, "I'm nobody, who the hell am I? I'm just a guy like you who loves God..." and it's trying. I dont get it bro, I really don't understand it, and it gets frustrating, it's been a 20 year battle for us of like "Why am I even a Christian when we haven't been received by the Christian church?" - we have too many tattoos, our music is too heavy, etc. At the end of the day, I have to answer to the Lord.
Jake Denning on 10/29/12 - 04:04 PM
Lots of us are probably stuck inside today. So let's get through this terrible storm together, in a turntable room. Stay safe everyone!

This week's edition of the Self-Promotion Spotlight features Buffalo, NY's The Traditional. Their style of indie alt.rock is not unlike Seahaven, All Get Out, Manchester Orchestra or Balance and Composure. Their new EP You Can't Rebuild Forever will be released on Halloween. For more information on the band, head to their Bandcamp. Want to be featured in the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy. Just sign up for an AP.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

Modern Suits recently released their sophomore EP, Promises. It was recorded with Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter; Story of the Year) and Steve Haigler (Fuel's Sunburn; Brand New’s Deja Entendu) if that tells you anything. To celebrate the release, we're streaming a new song from it - "Fingerprints." Head to their AP.net Profile or the replies to check it out.

Fest 11 is now only days away, and a lot of people are starting to arrive or get closer to Gainesville. While you're on your way in and out of this fine city, or if you'll be in the north-central Florida area for a little bit of time, you might want to take advantage of some of the awesome pre- and post-Fest shows around here. While Fest has an incredible lineup of its own, there are really only so many bands you can see in three days. Setting your schedule for before and after Fest can guarantee you seeing a few bands, which will reduce your conflicts during the weekend and turn an already-awesome three-day experience into an are-you-crazy-enough-to-attempt-this five or six day...

Two years ago, Devo had to cancel their headlining performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest due to injury and only weeks before the festival. It was announced that Descendents would be reuniting for the first time in about a decade to fill the spot, and as someone who was there, it was a blast. Our friends at Light and Noise TV were there to capture the whole thing, including the encore where Rise Against's Tim Mcllrath joined the band for "Bikeage." In case you haven't been able to see one of the one-offs, head to the replies to watch the full set. The seventh annual Fun Fun Fun Fest happens next weekend, and tickets are still available here.
