You may remember that sunny day in 2014 when Loyola Marymount’s college radio station, KXLU, held its first annual music festival; Grimy Goods was there to capture the magic. Now the station is back with their fourth installment, happening at LMU’s Lawton Plaza this Sunday, March 18th! The lineup features performances from local artists: MNDSGN, Band Aparte, Sextile, Wild Wing, and Pinky Pinky. It is completely free for all ages to attend, with free parking available as well. Stop by anytime in the afternoon; the event is scheduled to start at noon and run until sundown. More from the college station’s press release below.
