Like, OMG, FFFF is almost here!  Why, it’s so super-fun, I can hardly even stand it!  Ha ha, sarcasm aside, I am looking forward to this weekend’s festivities and what will hopefully be a much more laid-back version of ACL weekend.  If you missed it, check out my FFFF picks for Friday and Saturday here.

Now, for the bad news about Sunday: Devo had to cancel their appearance.  What??!  The outrage!  But the organizers of FFFF thankfully relented in adding another ironic band to the lineup, opting instead to go with punk rock innovators, Descendents.  So, with that out of the way, onward and upward with the rest of my picks for Sunday’s lineup!  Don’t forget to come back later for my pre- and after-show recommendations as well.

Sunday, November 7th

12:25 pm, Crew 54

Get your dose of indie pop goodness early in the day with the youthfully optimistic Magic Kids.

2:55 pm, Toro y Moi

Continue your good trip (or escape your bad one) with chillwave specialist Chazwick Bundick at 2:55 pm.  This show will probably be pretty packed.

5:10 pm, Best Coast

This highly buzzed-about indie band will be one of the big draws of Sunday afternoon.
