LA: Fuck Yeah Fest

August 24, 2007

On very few occasions will we ever say something like, "If you miss this, you hate music" or "Don't even look at us if you weren't there" and we probably won't say it this time either, BUT this weekend's Fuck Yeah Fest in Echo Park is one of the few festivals we've seen this year that is totally unique and bewilderingly awesome. It all starts tonight at a pre-party with Dios Malos and others, then spreads out over five locales in the neighborhood on Saturday and Sunday with performers ranging from Deerhunter and No Age (back to back!) to Boom Bip to the comedy stylings of Jonah Ray and Bob Odenkirk and a weekend pass is only TWENTY FOUR DOLLARS. Ridiculous. Check more info after the jump or at Fuck Yeah Fest's

regular site or MySpace. And send us pictures on Monday. We'll post them some kind of gallery or something.

The main entrance for Fuck Yeah Fest is through the EchoPlex. This is where you will be able to purchase tickets and where the Will Call both will be located. Even if you have purchased a ticket you will still need to go to the EchoPlex to trade your ticket for a wrist band, which will get you access to all the venues:

EchoPlex - 1154 Glendale Blvd. LA, CA 90026

The Echo - 1822 Sunset Blvd. LA, CA 90026

The Rec Center – 1161 Logan St. LA, CA 90026

Taix - 1911 W Sunset Blvd, LA. CA 90026

1710 Local – 1710 Sunset Blvd. LA, CA 90026

Pamphlets will be given out with a map of Echo Park with all the locations along with the schedule at the festival.

There will be booths by Secret Headquarters, Family, Dons Music, 826LA + more. We will also be selling screen prints of the Raymond Pettibon poster that we have on our site.

Tickets will be available at the door. And take a minute and listen to some of the bands performing at the fest.

A pre party will be taking place on Friday, August 24th at the 6th st. Warehouse with Dios Malos, Infauxtech, Antimc, Nodzz + more. Starts at 9:00pm. $5. You know the drill…
