It’s here, Los Angeles. This Saturday, March 27th Aquarium Drunkard, in conjunction with the Echo, is holding its inaugural all ages festival here in L.A. in Echo Park. Dubbed WAVED OUT, after my favorite Robert Pollard solo album, this is the first of what will be a recurring event featuring emerging national, local and international artists. For this, the kickoff, we are beginning in the afternoon at both clubs (the Echo and Echoplex) and going until two a.m. All ages + 12 bucks. Food trucks, t-shirts, ice cream (!) and more…. Sixteen bands, two stages – Beginning at 3 p.m. I’m giving away 10 pairs of tickets. Leave you name and email below – winners drawn at random.

Confirmed: Surfer Blood, Best Coast, Turbo Fruits, The Sandwitches, Dirt Dress, The Coathangers, Active Child, PoPo, Moon Duo, Gamble House, Family Portrait, Tape Deck Mountain, Apes of Wrath, Pizza!, Giant Cloud, Superhumanoids.

  18. Man, I bought tickets for this almost as soon as it was announced– at that time it was just Surfer Blood and Best Coast and like one other band and I was super excited– but now I’m worried it’s going to be freaking packed and uncomfortably crowded.

    Too many bands. All ages. What the hell? FYF fest, anyone?

    I might not even be able to get in to see the bands I want. Or I’ll want to get the fuck out of there as soon as I DO get in because of all the kids constantly touching me. Fuck.

    It doesn’t have to be Wavestock, dude.

  19. No offense Jed, but it sounds like you’d be much more comfortable sitting at home listening to records… I imagine you’re one of those guys who complains when a band you like blows up, because they’re not your own little secret anymore. The music industry is just that: an industry. The idea is to make money. Justin, make this shit Wavestock.

    And, Jed, FYF was fantastic. You make it sound like the independent version of Warp Tour.

  22. yayyyyyyy

  23. stoked to get waved out, tickets please!

  24. surfer blood!!
    i want tickets =]

  25. @jed because surfer blood is now playing the echo plex it probably won’t be so packed. it’s a huge venue and there’s always room to get away from the crowd. had this great event not taken place they’d probably be playing a very packed echo or spaceland in those conditions you seem so scared of.

  26. Ahh I went last night! SO GOOD. But I wasn’t able to get a t-shirt because we had to leave. Is there any way I can still get one?

  31. […] Waved Out Music Festival: September 25 – The Exhoplex, Hollywood Waved is not your typical music festival. Instead of featuring major headlining acts that span across various music genres, the second annual Waved Out festival will showcase some of the more unique rock acts out there. Psychadelic rock, garage rock, folk rock, and just gold ol’ fashioned rock n’ roll, will be prominently on display throughout the night. Headlining the event will be the Swedish psychedelic rockers Dungen, whose sound is said to mix elements of Hendrix and Floyd with a dash of jazz and experimental rock. The event will also feature comedians and some of LA’s most popular food trucks. For more information on the musical acts and other things ongoing, check out the Aquarium Drunkard website. […]
