FYF Fest

FYF Fest: Save Our State Parks is happening this Saturday, September 5th at California's L.A. State Historic Park. Tickets for the fest are still on sale (as are limited VIP passes).

The one-day-fest's lineup is a combination of bands that are coming to NYC soon (Black Lips, Kurt Vile, TNV, Cold Cave, to name a few) and bands that hopefully will be coming back to NYC sometime soon (Dillinger Escape Plan, Fucked Up, Mika Miko, "Tim & Eric Special Musical Performance"). The full schedule and more is below.

In addition, the fest has announced that if you live in certain cities (Barstow, Reno, El Paso, others) or if it's your birthday, you can get in for free. There's also an open slot to play the fest if you've got a band. Details with the full schedule and flyer are below....

DOES YOUR BAND WANT TO PLAY FYF FEST?
We have one slot open at the FYF Fest and we are going to give it to the band that brings us the most cans of food. Our food drive will run from 8:00am - 11:59pm on Thursday, September 3rd. All cans will be donated to the LA Food Bank.

Our office is located at
3020 Sunset Blvd.
LA, CA 90026

The band / team with the most cans of canned goods (all vegetables/ no meat!) will win the midday slot on the FYF Fest. For real!

We don't care what band your band sounds like or if you are even in a band. Hell, if you want to do tell jokes, play guitar hero, tap dance or mediatate on stage we are all for it. We are just trying to reach our goal, which is to donate 5,000 cans of food to the LA Food Bank!

Five runner ups will receive a pack 4 VIP tickets and high fives.

So much better than what Todd P can pull off at any of his festivals that he has every year...

These two sets should be so brutal.....

"clown of the day" award goes to 2:15

dude, at least 75% of these acts ToddP has promoted in the past. that is real sets, full ones. not those cut short festival kinda slots. so what you are basically talking about is DEP and Converge. seriously, you have me rolling on the floor laughing. why would anybody with half a brain left even mention these 2 in a d.i.y. context. what's next? bitchin' about ToddP not promoting U2 shows?

also, if you are so displeased with what's going on around nyc, I recommend getting your lame keyboard warrior ass off the couch and make shit happen for yourself ;-)
