UPDATE: Fred Armisen is no longer scheduled to do a DJ set at the Belmont during Fun Fun Fun Fest. Bob Mould is still on the bill at the Belmont on Friday night.


A couple Fun Fun Fun Fest late adds/swaps worth noting.

Comedian Fred Armisen of ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘Portlandia’ will be doing a 30-minute DJ set at the Belmont on Friday at midnight. We’re fairly certain he’ll be spinning a mix of rockabilly, psychedelia and reggaeton.

Also, Queens chef-rapper Action Bronson has dropped out of the fest and Atlanta-based rapper Killer Mike is taking his place. Mike’s excellent release “R.A.P. Music” was a 2012 standout and he’s spent most of the summer murdering stages as half of the duo Run the Jewels a collaboration project with El-P, so I’m not feeling at all cheated by this swap.
