LA, International Bands in the Spotlight at Detour

New York you're bringing us down. One look at this weekend's Detour Fest lineup and it appears that Los Angeles, once again, is the center of all things rock. While dozens of acts will descend on downtown LA this Saturday, from as far as Australia, Sweden, France, Mexico, and Missouri, the NYC rock scene is MIA. Hell, even the two-headed Raveonettes are staking their claim to Hollywood, listed as hailing from "New York, Los Angeles." Viva LA.

We've given away a pair of VIP tickets and put more tickets up for grabs yesterday. Why should you drop everything this Saturday and get your ass to City Hall? For $35.50, it's a 12-hour live tour around the world on four city blocks.

We're taking over City Hall. Detour features 20+ bands on four stages, food, vendors and art installations, plus the plush oasis of City Hall's shady south lawn.
