    That ridiculous! You can park across the street from my loft building on the corner of 4th and Alameda, about a mile away. The only restriction is no parking between 4-6pm monday-friday. It's still mostly industrial stuff right there at the moment so the parking never fills up. Other than that I do believe parking is at a bit of a premium in Little Tokyo since it is high traffic.

    From an email I just got - Adds? Schedule already? Something else?

    Hope this finds you well. Will keep this very short.

    Tonight we have two great shows in Los Angeles. Nails will be celebrating the release of their new album, "Abandon All Life" (Southern Lord) at the Echo. Tickets are $12 and doors open at 5:00pm. And the Field are performing at the El Rey with Pharaohs. The Field's set at FYF Fest this past year was amazing. Highly recommend seeing them live. Tickets are $17 and will be available at the door. Both shows are all ages.

    As for FYF Fest... 77 Days away. Can't wait. A week from Tuesday we will have news for you. Probably will make you smile.

    Have a great weekend.
    FYF

    At first I thought it would be adds, but figured that the comedian announcements would probably be something to make us smile...

    Looks like MBV's appearance at FYF won't be the first in the states. Makes it a little less special, but will be a great set regardless.

    I was hoping Phantogram might get added with them playing Treasure Island, but I think they're out with their bowl performance in September. So.... I'm guessing the comedian line up is what's going to be announced? David Cross last year was one of the highlights of the whole festival. Definitely glad I caught him.

    I hope their FYF set is long enough. They'll need at least fifteen extra minutes to squeeze in a white noise jam.

    I'd love to catch them in SF before FYF, but the acoustics of Bill Graham ruined the Sigur Ros show for me.

    His set was great until the soundbleed that happened halfway through the set which caused David Cross to get upset with FYF's layout.

    I thought he dealt with it just fine and the rest of the set was terrific.

    It appears as though Metro Plaza Hotel is fully booked and there are no rooms left.

    If you book in advance you can get 2 queen bed rooms for just under $200/night after taxes at the Doubletree in Little Tokyo, which is very close to our place. Very short 2-stop light rail ride to the fest, as discussed before.

    Miyako in Little Tokyo is still open. Nice rooms and close enough to the venue. Or better yet, the pre-game meet up at Wurstkuche!
