FYF 2012 Photos!

By far, the best labor day weekend @ FYF Fest! This two-day festival was held at L.A.’s Historic Park nearby Downtown. Headlining acts such as Refused, M83, Warpaint, Dinosaur Jr., Beirut, Twin Shadow, The Faint, among many other great bands performed as well as Stand-Up Comedy acts. Definitely an awesome way to spend your last days of Summer! If you weren’t there, that sucks for you! Here’s quick photo recap/story of the happening:
