Too broke or too busy to make it out to Austin this year?

Then head over to The Satellite with the rest of us poor bastards who will be left behind. has put together a 4-night line-up of indie rock bands sticking around town this week in a festival it's calling LAxLA (we're not sure if that's pronounced "L.A. by L.A.")

It kicks off Tuesday and goes through Friday, and $10 will get you in to every show. Bands include The Flaamingos, The New Division and The Californian.
