Santa Ana is gearing up for its November 15th music and arts festival called soundDowntown. They just announced some more artists of the large 50 band line-up that will play at over 10 local venues. Notable bands to LAist are local and national acts such as the The Entrance Band, Mexican Institute of Sound, Bus Driver, Nortec Collective, Int'l Noise Conspiracy, Strange Fruit, Shepard Fairey, Nosaj Thing and The Growlers.

For those who know the area, "this festival marks the recent re-launch of the historic Yost Theater, the re-establishment of Koo’s music programming at the Yost, the renovation of Festival Hall, the developing entertainment district along the Fiesta Marketplace, and the expanding visual arts components of the East Village as well as the 4th Street retail district," explain the event organizers. Wow, the OC is sounding like the NYC.
