FMLY FEST 2k12 is the fourth annual installment of our planet's biggest, wildest, friendliest D.I.T. (do-it-together) music and arts festival. After three "now legendary" (Decoder Magazine), "unmissable" (LA Times) winters in Los Angeles FMLY FEST has taken summer buds to Brooklyn to indulge our East Coast tropical fantasies. From June 21 - 23 we open our front doors and invite you into our bedrooms, basements, rooftops, and backyards to celebrate a shared intimate insanity. For these three days we hope to become involved in a possibility of what life could be like if we nurture creative impulse, collaborative desires, and allow for each and every moment to welcome the festivity of a more shared experience. We are not renting out any fancy social spaces or opening our embraces to shallow waters of non-committal diy-ism, but taking this opportunity to directly engage with our immediate community of Bushwick and introduce our fam throughout the world to our inspiring neighbors. This summer, we welcome you home.
The fourth annual FMLY Fest, which usually takes place in LA, is coming to Bushwick, Brooklyn this week from June 21 - 23 across multiple venues including Shea Stadium, 13 Thames, McKibben Park, and Bohemian Grove. Bands playing include Megafortress, Truman Peyote, Weekends, Vacation Dad, Mutual Benefit, Verbs, Messy Sparkles, Alaskas, Birthdays, and more. The full schedule is below and a mixtape of all the bands playing is available on bandcamp (name your price). Tickets for the fest are on sale now.

TIP to whichever one of the pelly twits is running this: booking your shitty friends bands is not cool

Verbs, Alaskas, Weekends, Birthdays, Farms, Winks. How have these boring-ass names not been taken yet in the course of music history?

this looks like an event that is definitely worth avoiding

and the lonely men who frequently comment on brooklyn vegan, wallowing in the decrepit mansions of their industry morals, died sad, lonely, fucking deaths because they forgot how to have fun without corporate sponsorship.

The fmly collaborative of music and art is magical and so engaging to everyone involved. The caring support and friendships in the fmly makes community a better place.

Just in case the gentleman who wrote the first negative comment
about the fmly fest returns to comments; can i ask you if you have ever experienced one of these events to see the positive energy and communication of these youth non-profit programs? If this is not cool, can you tell me what is?
