FYF Fest 2013

Its really a sad state of affairs when a band making a scheduled appearance is news, but nevertheless it was somewhat of a surprise that Death Grips did make their headlining appearance (on the Miranda stage) at the first day of FYF Fest in LA on Saturday (8/24) while Yeah Yeah Yeahs played at the adjacent Carrie stage (yes, stages were named after Sex & The City characters). The two-day festival, which took place in LA State Historic Park over the weekend, also featured many other notables, including appearances from TV on the Radio, FLAG, a reunion set from The Locust, as well as sets from names like The Breeders, Waxahatchee, METZ, Joyce Manor, Ty Segall (who's in NYC for two shows this week), and more. Pictures from FYF including all of the mentioned artists above -- as well as shots of Jim Hamilton, Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjiana, Crystal Antlers, Charles Bradley, Toro y Moi, Classixx, Nosaj Thing, comedians and more -- are in this post.

We'll have pictures from Day 2 soon. More pics from FYF Fest Day 1 below...

Is the Locust the "special guest" at House of Vans this week?

Fuck Death Grips for dicking out on shows but playing this.

'Gotta suck FYF dick huh fellas? It's not even that. They knew that if they pulled their no show bullshit with FYF Fest they'd be finished.

It's a "sad state of affairs" that BV not only mentioned this shit "band" but posted photos of them. 'Way to support those who don't care, BV.

Flag played LA huh? Hey Greg Ginn where was your "cease and desist" letter? All talk, no walk.

I was here this weekend and I cannot stress enough how many MORE hot girls there were than this sampling of photos suggests.

YYY's were pretty terrible.

D, the rectums you split with your pee-pee
D, the HIV you sprayed in me
D, the guys you blew in NYC
D, the HIV you gave to me.

yeah BV, get that time travel shit sorted out so you can go back in time to post photos from CBGB circa 1985-92 aka "the only time music was vital"

Posted by D Rider | August 26, 2013 12:20 PM

Wow you can't rap for shit my man, I hope you have a day job.

Your rhyme scheme is all the vowel "e" with the words pee-pee (you a cornball for using that word alone), HIV, me, NYC, and me again. You used the same rhyme twice thus failed Freestyle 101.

Who you callin' a dog when you can't even date one
You a faggot plain and simple go mate with one

Attorney D coming through with supreme knowledge.

D - a cease and desist letter means fuckall if you don't get a judge to issue an injunction. Even then, Keith & Co. (who are idiots, btw) could still go on stage. It would simply mean they violated the injunction.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2013 12:52 PM

Ginn's an idiot for not getting the injunction so he coud set up Flag to be in violation of it as you know they're gonna play for all the $$$ on the table (my guess at least ten grand.)

12:20 Oh look your missed out on 1985-92 asshurt bitch self is back. Go listen to some music released in 2000 bitch. Oh wait, tell me what was around then that was "the shit", I need a laugh.

how's fuckin' limp bizkit, system of a down, slipknot, eminem and alien ant farm sound assneck? nothing your precious CBGB scene ever did could hold a candle to the awesomeness found then. you and your pussy DMS buddies couldn't even hack a tattoo the earth pit, especially if you could put your walkers aside you old piece of shit.

Posted by Anonymous | August 26, 2013 4:49 PM

Fuck Limp Bizkit, System Of A Down, Eminem, and Alien Ant Farm.

My "precious CBGB scene" is the reason those bands exist. I got news and a school lesson for you you clueless assgerbil:

Beastie Boys paved the way for ALL white rappers including Eminem and guess what Beastie Boys started out as? You got it: A NEW YORK HARDCORE BAND. See "Some Old Bullshit" dickface. The other three ALL took their cues from mid-late '80s NYHC.

DMS are not my buddies, but I think it's fairly certain you wouldn't dare come up to any of them and pop your shit to them. Tattoo The Earth pit LOL. I know you're a total troll but I'll humor you.

Posted by D | August 26, 2013 5:05 PM

re 4:49 & D - can we all agree that Mike Patton has earned a special place in hell for the absolute fucking shit pile that he spawned with those 4 abortions you referenced?
ps - my guess is that the lawyers for Ginn and Garfield(Rollins) and Morris are working out the $$ behind the scenes

Going to Porter's Pub tonight to see my ICAM alum buddy Bobby Bray perform! You should come to La Jolla and watch.

I used the ones that came in my mars volta record and it works on most of the video. pretty trippy

Actually there was industrial hip hop in the late 80s and early 90s, like The Beatnigs and some of Divine Styler's work.

Karen O is so fucking hot...I saw them live at Red Rocks back in 2009, front row seat right behind the douchey V.I.P. section (who didn't even know the fucking lyrics to the songs and were given the chance to sing into the mike that Karen was holding) and I cried during I think either Dull Life or Cheated Hearts, I can't remember...I'm a total thrash metalhead and feel like a complete biotch confessing this over Youtube but the power this band has (especially Karen O) over my emotions is just fucking awesome...I love this band man...
