Slayer was the real main headliner of Fun Fun Fun Fest. Every night there were there big bands playing with everyone from Danzig to Public Enemy, but everyone seemed to be pretty fucking excited about Slayer. Even Odd Future thanked everyone who came to their show despite Slayer playing. One of the food vendors had a Slayer Dog for sale for $6.66 and there were more Slayer shirts at the fest than anything else.
It hadn’t rained in Austin for months before Sunday yet the skies opened up a few hours before Slayer played. I am not going to comment on the rumor that it was raining blood and frogs but let’s just say with the combination of the dust storms and the blood rain I was pretty sure the world was going to end when Slayer took the stage. Fortunately for us it did not and they just played what was described to me by a huge Slayer fan as their best show in a decade. I only shot two songs but it was an epic experience.
