DAY TWO OF THE F YEAH FEST
SUNDAY, AUGUST 31st

THE LA SCAVENGER HUNT:
The LA Scavenger Hunt will be taking place the day after the F Yeah Fest, Sunday, August 31st. Here is a list of a few of the prizes for the winning team of the scavenger hunt. We are serious when we say that this will be the best day of the summer.


$500 cash
1hr to play whatever you want on KXLU (88.9fm in Los Angeles) on Friday, September 5th from 4:00pm - 5:00pm. Thank you Matt from KXLU for making this happen.
The opening slot on Mess With Texas 3 + $200 cash to get to Austin to perform. Mess With Texas is a free party that takes place during SXSW. This past year the Breeders, NOFX, Simian Mobile Disco, Lucero and Islands were amongst the bands that played to over 20,000 in attendance. I organize the event with two friends. Your band or a band of your choice (your best friends band) get to play.
10 new cds every month for an entire year from Finger Prints Music picked by their staff. The best record store in so cal!
The largest whiskey bottle known to man. Actually, it's not the largest but 5 gallons is big and if the winners are underage they will get a keg of crystal clear pepsi or fruit punch.
12 pairs of shoes from Onitsuka Tiger.
A Gibson guitar. For real
4 tickets to Mogwai at the Wiltern & 4 tickets to Hot Chip at the Wiltern. Two amazing shows.
A package of records (all vinyl) from In the Red Records
$100 to American Apperal.
Crystal Antlers play in your living room. This isn't much of a gift but really, we will bring a PA, keg & the beautiful band Crystal Antlers to play to your friends.
A HUGE package of records from Sub Pop & Vice Records
A gift certificate to Headline Records
4 Watches from Vestal
A gift certificate to Secret Head Quarters + so much more.

Here is some information about the scavenger hunt:
The hunt will take place on Sunday, August 31st. It will start at 2pm at the Echo Park Lake and will end at a location in downtown LA at 7:00pm. The hunt is all ages, open to the public and cost $8 per person to participate.

The list for the hunt is made up of 100 items. Each item is worth a certain amount of points. The team with the most points at 7:00pm wins the grand prize. Teams are made up of 2 to 5 people. Each team must have a name. Your team should be like one of the gangs in the movie, the Warriors. Wear matching uniforms (this is not necessary but HIGHLY recommended), face paint, and make sure to scream a lot.

Items & Points:
Here is an example of some of the items that were on the list to the last scavenger hunt.

Everyone on the team gets cornrows and extended fingernails. Must be real cornrows.
One Person on the team getting a flat top with their name shaved into the back of their head.
Life size cut out of Eazy E.
Photograph of team member kissing a stranger on the lips. 50 extra points if they are a senior citizen.


The Cause:
Forty items on the list are material goods that the Union Rescue Mission is in need of. The Union Rescue Mission houses hundreds of houseless families in downtown Los Angeles and is one of the few missions that works with homeless to get back on their feet. With the last scavenger hunt we were able to donate thousands of dollars of material goods and plan to do the same with this year's event.



THE SCAVENGER HUNT IS MEANT IS FOR EVERYBODY. WE DON'T CARE IF YOUR 14 OR 40. COME OUT AND HAVE FUN. AND AFTERWARDS THERE ARE VARIOUS AFTER PARTIES TAKING PLACE WITH DAN DEACON, POLVO, TRANS AM, PAINT IT BLACK & MORE. CHECK THE SITE FOR MORE DETAILS.
