The Jubilee Music & Arts Festival is kicking off this weekend in downtown L.A and the weather isn’t the only thing looking good! With four stages of live performances across two full days (Friday and Sunday), you’re going to have to make some brave decisions of which bands to catch. Unless, you have superpowers or a teleportation device, unfortunately, as with every music festival — you won’t be able to see every performance.
Check out below, Grimy Goods’ 5 Must See Acts at Jubilee Music & Arts Festival.
The Dead Ships are definitely one of the best independent bands in Los Angeles and if you have yet to experience them live, you better plug them into that Jubilee schedule of yours. These guys deliver an epic arsenal of high energy tunes dipped in savory flavors of garage and blues, and sprinkled with a tinge of soul. Their live shows are an all-out assault on your body; you will be dancing the day away while they do the same on stage. There is just so much great energy radiating from the Dead Ships. Expect a kick in the ass, the kind that makes you want to rock-the-fuck-out.
It’s about to get loud … Obliterations bring the thrash, and they bring it hard. Composed of members of Black Mountain, Saviours, Bluebird, Night Horse and Pink Mountaintops —these guys have a raw raucous sound that we don’t recommend for the faint of heart. It’s hardcore punk with some heavy classic guitar riffs. Expect a circle pit, expect some crowd-surfing, and expect a seriously exciting performance from Obliterations.
We’ve covered Pangea numerous times, and despite the teeny-boppers that infest their shows, it’s always a damn good time. These guys bring forth that bratty, garage-pop sound that can really rangle a crowd together to form a sea off gyrating bodies. Pangea‘s live show is intense, dirty and full of carnal energy. Even if you’re not into heavy garage, watching their live set is always pure entertainment — shit get’s wild.
Three girls, one boy — not to be confused with “two girls, one cup.” The kids in Cherry Glazerr are so young, they probably don’t even know what that dirty reference was all about. But they sure do know what good music is all about. Cherry Glazerr sing about your typical teenage musings from pizza and boys, to lipstick and milkshakes, and it’s all done with a sweet 60s pop sound. With ruby red lips and baby doll dresses, Cherry Glazerr are a tasty treat live for fans of all ages. They raise sweet nostalgia for the older folks, while entertaining the young kids with lyrics they can all relate to.
These guys are all things sweet and dreamy. Tapioca and the Flea make some lush indie pop tunes that blend rich psychedelic elements with video game-like electronic sounds. They’ve also done some killer remixes of Young the Giant, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, James Blake and more. Some of their tunes will have you floating off in succulent bubble on a dreamy trip to everywhere, while other numbers will have you dancing to their flirty rhythms.
