Fun Fun Fun Fest closed out its weekend festivities on Sunday with a very strong showing of lesser-known musical powerhouses, relying on some of Austin's hometown heroes as well as the city's reputation for introducing excellence via music festivals (see: SXSW, ACL) to broaden minds and send festivalgoers off with satisfied hearts and minds full of new names to dig into – not to mention a few Ryan-Gosling-sighting stories.

Untethered to the whims of Clear Channel and Live Nation in that it's an independent festival, FFFFest brings together rap, rock, electronica, metal, skate boarders, BMX-ers and more for a fully immersive entertainment experience that embraces the local culture while stimulating on all fronts. Not only that, but the world's first (and most definitely not last) taco cannon was unveiled, to the chomping delight of everyone. What other festival has a goddamned taco cannon

Japandroids and Between The Buried And Me obliterated the strictly-metal Black Stage on Sunday, while Rakim's midday cancellation gave Omar Rodriguez Lopez the perfect opportunity to stretch the muscles on his latest project, Bosnian Rainbows (with Teri from Le Butcherettes and Deantoni Parks of The Mars Volta).

It was a unique treat for concertgoers, who had no idea what to expect and walked away from the experience either supremely creeped out or significantly impressed with the atmospherically haunting rock outfit.

After The Octopus Project brought a groove-driven theremin-jedi performance that undoubtedly won quite a few new fans, The Black Angels delivered a psychedelically powerful set bathed in darkness with intermittent strobes and rainbow lighting. This, of course, was before Explosions In The Sky set a fitting tone for show-closer Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

The weekend saw hilarious appearances from comedians David Cross, Hannibal Buress and more, with Duncan Trussell's Sunday performance providing the most awkwardly squirm-worthy, psychedelic-channeling dose of unfiltered reality through a brilliant flipside perspective.
