Over the weekend I was at the Fun Fun Fun fest, I had a great time! I saw so many great bands including
Experimental Dental School
Octopus Project (super awesome!)
Golden Arm Trio
I snuck in a sandwich because a vegan’s motto is (like the girl scouts) always be prepared but I needn’t have worried. There were lots of things to eat from stands selling vegan Jambalaya and rice and beans to an outpost from The Parlor selling vegan cheeze, sausage, and garlic spinach pizza.
They also had an awesome stand called McGovern’s Organics which is a company that delievers vegan and glueten free meals and pastries around town. I had one of the best brownies of my life! It was so good, they also had frozen chocolate covered bananas on a stick which was the perfect thing to eat on a hot day! What a good idea. Here is a bad picture, it got really dusty in the afternoon.So the festival was a lot of fun. I danced like crazy and had fun fun fun. I also think it is one of the greatest fests ever for people watching, so many punks, hardcore kids, and scenesters all wearing often poorly fitting and interesting outfits. The festival was about a thousand times better than Austin City Limits which I went to earlier this year. The bands were better, you could leave and go places and come back, there was parking everywhere, it wasn’t claustrophobic, there were no chair people (who set up a whole camping spot in front of the stage so that you can’t walk around), it was only 20 bucks, AND it was in a nicer park. And you can bring your puppy! I saw this one.
The next morning I went to Kerby Lane because I read on Vegans Rock Austin that they had changed their vegan breakfast platter. Its true! The new platter has baked tofu that is actually seasoned (unlike there old unpressed, over crumbled, unseasoned, watery tofu) with vegan pancakes and soysage. The latter could still use some work but I thought it was better than the inedible rock that I had the last time. The tofu was about a million times better and the pancakes were great. We even had terrific service. So score for Kerbey Lane, no longer will a breathe a heavy sigh when someone wants to go there.
