THE DRUMS' ABYSMAL FEST

The Drums are putting on their own festival, Abysmal Fest, on July 9 at Shrine LA Outdoors with The Drums headlining and performances by Teezo Touchdown, Lil Mariko, DIIV and more. “I can’t believe I am finally starting my own festival,” says The Drums' Jonny Pierce. “I can look back to when I was a teenager who was so in love with music that I could barely sleep at night. Those years of discovery where I was introduced to (and came to depend on) techno, punk, shoegaze, metal, grunge, garage, and house music are some of the most thrilling years of my life and still inform the way I think about music today. The irony is that those years were also some of the most painful and dreadful years of my life - and it was music that helped me get through. So much of the music that I loved was about sadness and suffering, and by listening to these artists I felt my suffering lessen and my sadness transform to little moments of joy. While Abysmal Fest is absolutely for everyone, I wanted it to be especially for the kids who are going through a hard time and who’s hardships could be lessened by being with others who are also struggling. We can be seen in the music and seen in each other. See you at Abysmal Fest!” Head here for tickets and more info.
