The Black Lips
The FYF Fest (formerly F Yeah Fest) is set to take place at the Los Angeles Historic State Park in downtown L.A. on September 5. With independent rock acts like Lightning Bolt, The Black Lips, No Age, Crystal Antlers and Wavves as well as Lucero, AA Bondy, Peanut Butter Wolf and many more, the FYF Fest looks to be one of the more interesting SoCal music events this year. Tickets are on sale for the low price of $20 and can be purchased at fyffest.com.

Now in its sixth year, 24-year-old festival organizer Sean Carlson has taken the festival he started when he was 18 from Echo Park to the Los Angles Historic State Park. In addition to being one of the premier independent music festivals in Los Angles, the event is also attached to an important and urgent awareness campaign. Due to the recent budget cuts by Gov. Schwarzenegger, many vital programs are beginning to lose their lifelines - one of which is the California State Park System, where the governor decided to cut $14.2 million in funding, bringing over 100 California State Parks to the brink of closing down. FYF hopes that this event will send a message to all of the California state lawmakers stating that these parks are vital components of our communities should not be cut.

The 2009 Lineup includes:
Lightning Bolt (first U.S. Festival performance)
Black Lips
Tim and Eric (comedy duo from Adult Swim)
