Arthur Nights Begins Tonight Downtown

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If the Sunset Junction was too hip, and the Weekly Detour Fest was too cool, and what you're after is something with a little more edge, something you won't accidentally run into your high school assistant principal at - The Arthur Nights is your godsend.

Guaranteed to be weird, the kids over at Spaceland have moved the festival downtown to the legendary Palace Theater and tonight's acts feature underground darling Devendra Banhart (above). Throughout the rest of the week count on sets by TV on the Radio, Comets on Fire, Fiery Furnaces, Be Your Own Pet, and the always trippy Van Dyke Parks.

Tonight's line-up after the jump or you can see all of the set times on the Arthur Nights site.
