The official lineup for this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest, set for November 5-7 at Waterloo Park in the heart of downtown Austin, was released moments ago. In terms of firepower, this year's Fun Fun Fun roster arguably brings the festival within striking distance of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in terms of firepower with Devo, Mastodon, Os Mutantes and MGMT.

Honestly, Rocks Off doesn't see how this lineup - expanded to three days for the first time in Fun Fun Fun's history, with "Weird Al" Yankovic headlining Friday night - can be held in that park, unless they make more park than there is now. It would have been hard for FFFF to top last year's headers Danzig, The Jesus Lizard, Crystal Castles and Death, but somehow they did.

On top of that, Houston will more than likely be getting a taste of some of the acts. In fact, Bad Religion, Best Coast, The Hold Steady and Valient Thorr all hit us around the same time as FFFF.

Another cool thing is that of Houston's Black Congress, Devin the Dude and Indian Jewelry are all on the list. Rocks Off got word of Black Congress' inclusion on Saturday, but it was in passing at a bar so we didn't click to it until yesterday afternoon.

The complete Fun Fun Fun lineup is after the jump. You'll like it.

Rocks Off talked with BC drummer Chris Ryan about how the band got on the bill and what they have planned for the rest of the year. They have quite a gig schedule coming up. Having the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne get hip to them at Summer Fest probably won't hurt them in the future either.
