This weekends F Yeah Fest is so chock-full of goodies that we couldn't fit it all in one space, and want to honor Sunday's nutty and insanely great lineup with its own recommendation. The day begins at Echo Park Lake with a scavenger hunt that will stretch across Los Angeles and feature teams of between two and five people chasing clues and oddball items for points. Last year, points were accrued through accomplishment of such astounding feats as teams getting cornrows and extendo-nails; finding a pre-1987 gay porno magazine and a life-size cutout of Eazy E; getting your picture taken kissing a stranger on the lips (50 extra points if he/she is a senior citizen). Teams are encouraged to don costumes and come up with a good team moniker. Prizes include cash, a radio slot on KXLU, free CDs and a jumbo bottle of whiskey (or a keg of Crystal Clear Pepsi for the underagers). The day is capped with performances at the Echoplex by Dan Deacon, Trans Am and Polvo (see separate pick).
