The flagship event of Moon Block, an L.A.-based organization of artists and musicians stemming from acts such as Deap Vally and Mystic Braves, this year’s Moon Block Party boasts its biggest — and most diverse, with acts coming from everywhere from Mali to Mexico — bill to date. With local psych rockers Corners, Wax Children and Cosmonauts sprinkled in the mix with Topanga Canyon crooner Morgan Delt, “cosmic sound explorers” Orchestra of Spheres (who play homemade instruments such as a biscuit-tin guitar), New Zealand fuzz-rock phenomenon Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Black Angels, Band of Skulls and many more, all leading up to headliners Black Lips, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Spoon, this fest takes about every angle of alternative rock and throws it into a blender for a sweetly satisfying musical milkshake. Astronaut gear and alien costumes are encouraged.
