Roky Erickson and Okkervil River @ the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts 05/19/10

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Our lovely friends at FYF have done it again. In the tradition of Kidrockers, Sean and Phil and associated mates understand that us aging indie rockers want our kids to like and experience (until the teen years at least) the same bands that we do. Their kick-off event in their free kids + bands + ice cream social series was this past Wednesday, with headliners Roky Erickson (backed by Okkervil River) bringing songs old and new to die-hard fans and their adorable offspring. Pre-show, early birds were treated to a live reading of Dallas Clayton's An Awesome Book, which was then distributed gratis to the excited crowd.

For those of you that missed this, no worries. The word on the street is that the next event is going to be even more magical (with even more ice cream), so stay tuned to LAist and FYF for updates. Oh, and don't forget - like the Kidrockers series, you'll need a kid in tow to attend.
