Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Four weeks after the Sunset Junction Music Festival, audiophiles may head up to San Francisco to the Treasure Island Music Festival, whose lineup was announced yesterday. Justice, Hot Chip, Antibalas, Vampire Weekend, Tokyo Police Club and many more will be playing.

Also, for your get-to-know-the-LA-music-scene tip of the day, the new music site, Web In Front has a great podcast about The Squaregirls and the shows they put on.
