Austin, Texas is a pretty cool town, a little weird, but still mad cool. This was our 2nd trip there and we got a more authentic sense of the city this go round. We were in Austin (the self proclaimed live music capital of the world) for Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012 to see Run DMC live! on the (orange) Stage. We shopped, we walked, we heard music we love, we ate, we people watched, we photographed... while people watching and we really enjoyed the super chill, hipster neighborhood that is Austin. Below is a tiny pictorial glimpse of our weekend using my trusty iPhone camera along with the photographer's camera while we were in Austin... [all photos taken by ©Ron Ward unless otherwise noted]

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012. We were there!

The festival really encouraged alternate forms of transportation to the venue. Bikes (and pedi-cabs!) way outnumbered motor vehicles.. [taken with my iPhone]
This was just before Run DMC came on. They sounded exactly like they did in the 80's, they covered It's Tricky, Sucker MC's, Mary Mary, Walk This Way, Peter Piper, My Adidas, 30 Days, Krush Groove Part 2, Rock Box, Beats to the Rhyme plus more and Jam Master Jay's two sons did a DJ set.

The sea of people (after the lights went up) still hanging around after Run DMC's set, we left the festival shortly after to explore Austin nightlife... [pic taken with my iPhone] A few more pics from our trip to Austin below:
These guys were kicks.
Cheers to a great trip to Austin! [pic taken with my iPhone at La Condesa]
