L.A. Times and Weekly Give Away Exclusive MP3s for ‘The Scenesters’ Music + Film Series

Spirit Animal frontman Gray Kid shouts it out!

It’s true. We do run L.A. The Scenesters film will be screening for an action-packed week at the Downtown Independent starting THIS FRIDAY. And in honor of that, the two biggest publications n town have not only spread the word, but dolled out some free tunes for the cause.

Jeff Weiss over at L.A. Times dished out a little playful snark along with a free track from Saturday night performer Spirit Animal.

And Drew Tewksbury at L.A. Weekly dubbed the event “an independent eruption,” sharing a song from PAPA, who play on Monday.

COACHELLA 2010: The Belated Preview

So, I sorta spaced on this. On Thursday, LA Weekly released its annual Coachella issue and yours truly was all up in that ish. (Sorry, the long weekend has taken it’s toll on my creative juices.) While I realize the timeliness of this is a bit… untimely, since the focus is on L.A. artists, I’d like to get the word out.

Herein, you’ll find lots of good text on good performers from good writers like Jeff Weiss, Drew Tewksbury, Wendy Gilmartin and Daiana Feuer. I wrote on DJ Lance Rock, Devo, Edward Sharpe, the Glitch Mob, Mayer Hawthorne, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Julian Casablancas, and Thom Yorke. Dig it.
