Did you attend FFF in year's past? If so share your best story (or just make up a really good one). This is your soapbox so go for it!

    Some memories from last year:

    1.DUST!
    2.Losing one of my Ed Hardy shoes in the Milkmen pit.
    3.Dave Tejas from Krum Bums hanging upside down from the scaffolding and pouring beer on people!
    4.Crowd surfing for the first time in my life, and to Bad Brains! I wound up with three broken ribs, but a lifetime of memories!

    I attended in '08 and witnessed everything. From the 24oz. Fosters to the haircut tent there lurked a smell of success in the air. You can't beat a 2-day festival in the middle of Austin that covers all bases of entertainment. The only thing I can suggest for this year is something in 10D if possible.
    Favorite Moments: Tim & Eric, Dan Deacon, Minus the Bear, minimal travel between stages, nonstop music, and I pooped my pants maybe.

    Last year was my first year, and the whole thing kicked major ass. My favorite part, though was discovering the YOUNG WIDOWS, who I had not heard of before, and are now in my top three favorite bands (with Shellac and The Jesus Lizard) IMHO one of the best things about a well-curated festival (of which FFF has the best heavy music) is finding somebody you have not heard of, who melts your face off. Cheaper and more fun than plastic surgery!

    I remember in '06 when Peaches started playing "Shake your dix (shake your tits)" half the crowd lost their shirts and started jamming. Hottest night in December I've seen.

    06 was my favorite because there was less people and the weather was cool since it was in december. you should invite prefuse 73 back.
