Independent music and independent movies at the Downtown Independent?
Who'd have guessed?
On Friday, August 20, the Downtown Independent theater will host an independent eruption featuring seven nights of live music corresponding with the week-long theatrical run of Silver Lake murder mockumentary, The Scenesters.
Presented by comedy dudes The Vacationeers and Funny Ha Ha (run by The Scenesters music supervisor, West Coast Sound contributor, and aspiring haberdasher Chris Martins), “The Scenesters Run L.A.” will feature 14 bands.
From the down-home rock of Le Switch to the ravesploitation of Captain Ahab to an all-star country Misfits cover band, each night will dish out an eclectic mashup of artists from L.A.'s diverse musical landscape.
Oh yeah, and some super secret guests will stop by too, like ethereal beat banger Baths. That's right, secret revealed. Whoomp, there it is.
More fun than blasting dubstep at toddlers!
Full lineup, The Scenesters trailer, and free exclusive song from PAPA after the jump.
