Art Brut Contest: Tell LAist About Moving to LA

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

One of the more interesting bands to come out over the last few years is the British groupArt Brut whose college radio hit "Moving to LA" is reason enough love this band. In a few months the group, pictured, above, at Sea Level Records, will come out with their sophomore album.

But before they do we have some autographed posters to give away and some cd samplers of the new album, It's a Bit Complicated.

All you have to do is tell us something that you remember about moving to LA. And if you've lived here all your life tell us why you never moved away.
