My Morning Jacket soar at The Shrine taking the audience on genre defying musical journey

When a band that has such a long and respected history in music, like My Morning Jacket, rolls through town you pay attention. 15 years of creating music that started alt-country-rock and then with bravery moved into exploring other genres like soul, reggae and psychedelic, My Morning Jacket has eclipsed what we have come to […]

Glass Animals laid down the heavy “peanut butter vibes” to a passionate crowd at The Observatory

Hear a chirp. A buzz. A cricket. Fog. Palms. Green darkness. Erie. This is the jungle. Hear the roar. It’s the roar of the crowd for Glass Animals. Last night English indie psych-pop band, Glass Animals brought their infectious music to Orange County. Their single “Gooey” from last year’s release, Zabba, seems to have taken over the […]

Morrissey gives fans at FYF what they want, the hits

Photo by Wes Marsala Besides the kids that had camped out at the Main stage all day to see Morrissey, the rest of FYF Fest had a mass exodus from D’Angelo and Death Grips to get to there. As expected it was crowded but, people were taking up relaxing havens on benches, against walls or […]

D’Angelo & The Vanguard bring Sunday mass to FYF Fest

Taking the stage in a long coat and a white hat sitting slightly sideways on his head and a guitar that was glittering with embellishments, D’Angelo made his entrance at FYF. Backed by an absolutely incredible band and set of singers, it was clear from the first note that this was The Church of Music and D’Angelo […]

FKA Twigs dishes a plate of hot vulnerability and strength to close out FYF

Photo by Jazz Shademan Arriving at the stage for FKA Twigs you could see that everyone was tired and maybe a little weary from the jam packed two-day fest. Most were sitting waiting for the last act of FYF to take the stage. When the lights drew down completely dark and a hushed airy voice […]

Unknown Mortal Orchestra infuse fans with energy at FYF

Cutting early from the FYF Arena stage we crossed over to the Lawn stage to catch at least a few songs from the experimental and always fantastic Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Everyone there were definitely UMO fans, giving out a cheer the second the band came on the stage. With the heat still strong against our […]

Death Grips ACTUALLY show up at FYF Fest

Photo by Jazz Shademan Guess what? Death Grips showed up at FYF Fest. They walked on stage, and played a set that was intense x 1,000. The stage was bathed in fixed red lights with the crowd drowned in darkness. At the Trees Stage there are no screens showing what’s on and that somehow seemed […]

Neon Indian debuts new songs and plays fan favorites at FYF

We literally had to run from UMO to the Main Stage to catch Neon Indian at FYF, even missing the first half of his first song. It didn’t matter though, as soon as we approached the stage you could see Alan Palomo in white pants and a white t-shirt with a black blazer dancing behind […]

Lower Dens cools the Arena Stage at FYF with chill vibes

A pathway of fog machines and lights welcomed us to the floor inside the Arena, the only indoor stage at FYF. Inside a massive chandelier of disco balls and a low-lit stage are about the only things you can see. It’s dark and moody, which was a good fit for Lower Dens. Lead singer Jana […]

Flume kicks FYF Sunday into high gear with special (dancing) guest Lorde

“It’s been awhile LA,” Harley Streten aka Flume said after a short opening sample. The sun was setting behind the main stage bathing the crowd in golden light and we could feel the heat slowly melt away off our skin. I didn’t know what to expect from Flume’s performance, everyone told me to get ready […]
