Deerhunter will be there too!

This year Keith and Sean outdo themselves big time with the 4th Annual Fuck Yeah! Fest, and the banging roster they've built. It's a two day show ($13/day or $24 for both days) that spreads itself over five age friendly venues in Echo Park. There's gonna be art, comedians, and over 50 bands. and i mean they'll have a little of everything from grat bands such as Whispertown 2000 to great rappers like Busdriver.

The two madmen behind the scenes making it all happen are young Sean Carlson, who founded this thing when he was 18, and legendary Keith Morris who you might better remember as the singer for the Circle Jerks. And it's really like they're curators more than show promoters, because this is more than a big rock show. This is an art, comedy, music, extravaganza with $3 Dewars drinks. Highlights will include the only Fuse! reunion you will see anytime soon, Brother Reade, and finding out about a buncha stuff i never heard before.
