Rapture or not, Silver Lake Jubilee came and went with a bang this past weekend, May 21-22, 2011 and I must admit, attendees partied, danced and laughed as though it were the end of the world. With an amazing display of some of the best Los Angeles bands, we were most impressed by Restavrant—and by the looks of the crowed and endless conversations we had after their pulsating set, Restavrant took the gold! This vibrant duo brought the hoedown through hipster town exuding nothing but a damn good time. People were dancing and stomping their feet to their fiery beats and gritty vocals as the alleged “rapture” was set to arrive. The only rapture I felt, was a cold gust of winds that picked up around 6 p.m. Other than that, everyone was alive and well! However, had the rapture came and blown us to smithereens, we would have gone out with one hell of time dancing to Restavrant.
Some other favorites we caught were: Audacity, Baths, Black Flamingo, Jail Weddings, Kate Micucci, Lady Danville, Marvelous Toy, Pangea, Psychic Friend, The Finches, Ximena Sarinana, and Rainow Arabia. Check out our photos below of all the aforementioned bands and many of the lovely faces of L.A.’s music scene.
