What’s Going on This Weekend LA?

Two AWESOME music festivals going on this weekend. One in So Cal and one in Nor Cal. I decided to skip out on San Deigo’s Street-Scene this year and hit up San Francisco’s Outside Lands! If you’re not going to either, you’re def missing out. But here’s some cool shit to do in LA, while we’re away.
