L.A. rockers the Young Creatures have joined forces with Nomad Eel Records to put on this, the second Creature Feature Festival. A stunning combination of music and art, top billing goes to Minutemen/Stooges/Firehose man Mike Watt who will be celebrating the release of his single. Ditto local surf-psych-rock troupe The Blank Tapes — this serves as their record release show too. Naturally, the Young Creatures are on the bill, as are Soft Palms, Imaad Wasif, Brandon Graham of Dream Phases, Junaco and Early Evil. That’s a lot of wonderful underground punk and indie rock to get your teeth into. Add visuals from the Slim Reaper Lightshow, and a ton of amazing artists and vendors, and there’s much to love.

Creature Feature Fest takes place at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 23 at the Bootleg Theater.
