We know that L.A. starts to feel like a ghost town on a holiday weekend, but with a Goldenvoice-revamped 2-day FYF Fest kicking off on Saturday, the smartest kids might be the ones staying in town for Labor Day. And even if you're staying home to save dough, you deserve to see M83, Sleigh Bells, Dinosaur Jr. and the like just as much as anyone. Luckily for you, we've teamed up with our friends at Chilli Beans Sunglasses and Goldenvoice to give you a shot to win tickets, including a VIP prize package including free Chilli Beans sunglasses! Read on to find out how to enter today. More»
We've long been fans of the FYF Fest, dating back to the days when the alternative and indie rock themed festival had less corporate sponsorship to worry about and cheerfully printed the "F**k Yeah!" now implied in the name on their official tickets and banners. While we're general supporters of open profanity, the perfectly acceptable tradeoff in recent years has been the rapid expansion and improvement of the lineup, which last year featured beloved acts like Guided By Voices. But FYF organizers (which include co-sponsors like Goldenvoice) are clearly not yet satisfied, and they've proven it with an M83-led 2012 lineup, just announced this morning, that we feel safe saying is the best yet.

The Summer of Live Music just keeps rolling on, as the 16-year old Vans Warped Tour set up shop on the grounds of the Home Depot Center in Carson yesterday for a full day of loud music and extreme sports. Now, if a punk music festival that takes place on a summertime weekday sounds like it's set up almost exclusively for high school kids, you wouldn't be entirely mistaken, and the fact that I could only recognize four of the thirteen "main stage" bands kind of confirms it (the guys from Less Than Jake must be like 40 by now, right?), but I'd be lying to you if I didn't admit that going to these kind of shows when I was in high school was one of the highlights of the summer. So let's welcome the next generation into the joys of daylong drunkenness and live loud music with a look through KROQ's photo gallery of Warped Tour 2011.
