FYF Fest Day 1 Review

September 3, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Malvina Rincón

FYF Fest took place over Labor Day weekend in Los Angeles. It was two days of eclectic music in the sun in one of the most musically gifted cities in the country.

The DYI spirit of the festival, which has been running since 2004, did not go …

His music quickly started making the Internet rounds, and fans and critics alike took note of his pithy songcraft, infectiously catchy melodies, and youthful enthusiasm.
