Now Playing Tracks

Paper Mag has this to say about Brokechella 2013 band Body Parts’ new video:

There are two pretty remarkable things worth mentioning about the video for "Rest While you Sleep"by L.A.-based, self-described “experimental pop” band Body Parts: 1) the clip was filmed on location (no green screens) in Death Valley, Santa Cruz and Venice Beach, places that provide backdrops as dramatic as those that you’ll find on a Planet Earth DVD for 2) band members Ryder Bach and Alina Cutrono to practice… tai-chi.

Here’s the not-so-secret secret about a multi-day music festival in the desert: It’s a multi-day music festival in the desert.

Which means a few things from the get-go. One? You have to get to the desert, and possibly stay in the desert, which probably will take some cash, or at least you cleaning out your aunt’s garage or washing your friend’s car in some sort of barter-type situation.

*****  

Brokechella, April 20 at Six01 Studios (601 S. Anderson St.). Cost: $10. Now in its third edition, this downtown festival celebrates underground up-and-comers and affordability. It won’t be as polished as its VIP-saturated inspiration, but it will be just as diverse, with selections that include the melodic rock of the Dead Ships, the vampy weirdness of Kera and the Lesbians and a head-trip of a hip-hop artist in NoCanDo.

LA Times Article: Not At Coachella? Don’t worry - neither are these shows.

Aw shucks, thanks guys!

Los Angeles, CA. March 20th, 2013: cARTel Collaborative Arts LA, in conjunction with Carlsberg, Bedrock and Jarritos, are proud to announce the line up for the 2013 Arts & Music festival, returning to Six01 Studios in DTLA on April 20th, 2013, doors at 4pm. The one day extravaganza in the spirit of  the festival none of us could afford will feature over 30 musical acts, the best of Los Angeles street food, festival encompassing art installations, dirt cheap drinks, photo booth, face painting, gift bags, and new for 2013, boutique vendors, “Broke” merchandise, games, and more — all minus the sweltering sun and prohibitive price tag.


This year, Brokechella will host returning acts electronic folk duo yOya, who will be celebrating the launch of their new album, and pop-soul inflicted garage rockers the Dead Ships, as well as eight bands new to the cARTel stage. These Los Angeles staples represent a variety of the city’s most thriving genres. This year, we welcome up and coming post-punk female duo TÜLIPS, rockin’ live wire trio you can’t help but guzzle a beer to, Manhattan Murder Mystery, the bi-polar folk with hints of back alley blues band, Kera & the Lesbians, melodic 60s fuzz rock n rollers, Hello Echo, throwback quartet saturated in vocal harmonies, King Washington, the intellectually demanding yet imminently danceable band taking LA by storm, Body Parts, the 90’s R&B meets New Jack Swing meets the future, electronic artists Mystery Skulls, and the space-funk electro-gospel dance til you can dance no more show stoppers Planet Booty.


Not a group to stay stagnant, cARTel aims to expand Brokechella this year by collaborating with LA music powerhouses Shifty Rhythms and Brownies & Lemonade to curate our second and third stages, which will feature acts including Mann the artist behind “Buzzin” ft 50 Cent, Timbaland produced MC Shawn Crystopher, Vindata, Cy Kosis, and special guests yet to be announced.


This year’s festival wide art installation will focus on the theme of “Strange Paradise.” The festival is still accepting artist submissions. cARTel is also partnering with our 2013 supporters to create themed monoliths that will decorate the space.


BROKECHELLA is a proud recipient of an Awesome Foundation Grant. Not only will funds help support the growth of the festival, but cARTel is actively working with the Foundation to help broaden the opportunities for young producers.


The festival will also feature unique activities for attendees that make an effort to stay green - expect recycling bins that double as art pieces and games plus LED lights and recycled/sustainable materials in all the artwork.


For the next 5 days, tickets are available for $5 as part of our Early Broke Bird special program running March 21-26. After this, general admission will be $10.


Details on additional stages, vendors, activities, happy hour, special deals for staying responsible & sustainable and more will be announced in the coming weeks.
