On July 23rd, Dirty Laundry TV and local Los Angeles independent record label, Penniback Records are taking over the Echo and Echoplex to showcase both the bands on their label and other, prominent L.A. up and comers; Dirty Penni Fest is born.
As the epidemic of DIY music biz entrepreneurs spreads across Southern California, legions of young punks and prodigies hustle hard to expose the world to their neighborhood bands. Featuring artists such as Wild Wing, Jurassic Shark, Super Lunch and Tongues, Penniback Records is drawing attention for their contributions to the ever expanding universe of bands in L.A. Some of the headliners include No Parents, Guantanamo Baywatch, The legendary Mike Watt, Death Hymn Number 9, Lovely Bad Things. A couple other bands we’re excited about are French Vanilla, one of the best bands you’ve never heard of and the almighty Meat Market. There is also a SUPER SECRET GUEST that they are unable to announce yet so expect a nice surprise at the top of this festival.
Janky Smooth and Penniback Records are giving away 2 tickets to Dirty Penni Fest and label swag that includes 2 cassettes, 3 CD’s and a T-shirt to one winner that will be selected on Monday, July 22nd at 11am pst.
