We’re excited for a just-announced FYF Fest pre-show to take place just a night before the start of the hipster festival – on Friday, September 2 our friends Glass Candy and Chromatics will take the stage at Silver Lake night club Los Globos. DJs GODDOLLARS, Chris Cruse and Doctor Golden are also included on the bill.
Now, this brings a question to mind – why Los Globos? This is not a venue I see FYF Fest scoping out, in fact, just perusing the Yelp reviews (and knowing the venue’s reputation) this is a salsa and merengue venue, not exactly the indie type.
Perhaps this is the new work of entrepreneur and Echo Park resident Mitchell Frank (the Echo, Echoplex, El Prado, etc.) – whose split with partners at Spaceland opened up the search for a new venture in this part of LA. And although there are no official confirmations of new ownership yet, there is a rumor of new owners and some renovations made to the interior. We’ll have to check it out on Friday night at the show!
Los Globos is located at 3040 W Sunset Blvd.
