Coachella too pricey for your tastes?
Well, we’ve got a music festival to tell you about that might be more palpable to your sensibilities, and it’s all happening just a short drive down the 710 freeway.
The brand new Music Tastes Good, presented by KCRW, is hitting the streets of Downtown Long Beach this Sept. 23-25 with a list of headliners that’s sure to impress including The Specials, Iron and Wine, Sylvan Esso, Squeeze, De La Soul, Dr. Dog, Warpaint, Gallant, Deltron 3030 w/the 3030 Orchestra, Rx Bandits, MELVINS, and Living Colour,
Details on the official event website are a bit light (except for the list of bands), but the LA Weekly has mentioned that the weekend long festival will be broken into three unique experiences, with a night-time block party on Friday, a day-long set of performances on Saturday and a concluding Sunday brunch party to close it all out.
