LAist loves free shows, spring time festivals, good music and Trojans so we nearly shit a brick when we heard about the USC SpringFest 2008 this Saturday, which will have one bad ass line-up including Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, Saosin, Del tha Funkee Homosapien, The Aquabats, just to name a few.
If you don't go to USC, then you can locate Mcarthy Quad as, "that patch of grass between Doheny Library and Leavey Library." And if any of the "big name" headliners didn't fetch your attention peep the rest of the list: Young Love, Aceyalone, Self Against City, Brighten, William Tell, You, Me, and Everyone We Know, Fable, The Chase, Anarbor, Minority.
We're going because we want to see Del tha Funkee Homosapien and Aceyalone. Two of the greatest rappers to ever rock the house. Del comes from Oakland, and Acey's from LA and their styles could not be any more different. But they both represent the wonderful deep spectrum of California hiphop, and are both must-sees.
They usually other random festival-ish type stuff going on too. Like henna tattoo and sunglasses vendors, and probably some kind of sleazy fast food: Hot dogs, or pizza, ect. So, bring at least $5 in case you get the munchies.
