The Fuck Yeah Fest, curated by Sean Carlson and Keith Morris has definitely had its troubles this year. The original financial backer pulled out just days before plans to announce the line up, and there was that little incident at the Hollywood Bowl. But the show must go on!

Doors open today at 2:30. There are four event locations, but they are all within a few blocks of each other. The entry fee will get you a map and a wristband for entry into all locations. It is an all ages event.

The Echo will be featuring Abe Vigoda, paint it Black, Witch Hats and a score of other bands. Dennis Owens from Good Foot will be DJ-ing. Downstairs at the Echoplex (which thankfully you can enter through the Echo. Screw those stairs under the bridge) Negative Approach, Japanther and Mannequin Men will be among bands rocking your ass off. Dublab Soundsystem will be DJ-ing. The Fuck Yeah Fest Annex (next to the Echo) will be featuring Anavan, Silver Ghost and War Tapes, among others. Rusty Lazar will be DJ-ing. The Rec Center (On Logan and Sunset) will feature Comedy Show and the rad folk-rock of David Dondero. Don't miss him at 5:50 because you never know when he will come around again - he travels the earth like Kwai Chang Caine.
