Nearly every day I’m reminded just how awesome Los Angeles is for live music. In fact, just last night I went and saw one of L.A.’s favorite local bands, The Bellrays play an acoustic set at Spaceland- for free (like all Mondays, Spaceland is free). Which is why I was super excited, but not surprised, to hear about a great music festival coming to our fine city this September. Arthur Fest 2005, put on by Arthur Magazine, is a two day fest going on at the Barnsdall Art Park with some of the best bands I could think to put on a festival roster. This two day fest has Sonic Youth headlining the first day (Sunday the 4th) and YOKO ONO on the second (Monday the 5th). Not only are the headlining bands great, but so are a lot of the other bands playing, like the down dirty rock and rollers The Black Keys, and Cat Power, not to mention some unnamed guests, which usually means they are still adding people, but they could be more great bands… While it is a little strange to have a festival on a Monday, I think it’s more than worth it to see some of these great bands. But if you can’t do a Monday, you’re still in luck! TIckets are on sale for either day, or you can get a two day pass (like me!). For more info, click here, and rock out!!!
