Be A Passionate Volunteer Yourself and Go To The "Save The Smell Fest" All Ages - 8/6 This Saturday- Secret Downtown LA Location

The iconic DIY all ages punk / experimental / indie venue known as The Smell has a devoted army of fans and followers who have been doing their best to fuel the fight to keep the Smell alive after it was announced (back in May) that it is scheduled to be demolished for the property to (more than likely) become a parking structure. The venue has been ostensibly maintained by primary owner Jim Smith since the late 90's and once the shock of the bad news wore off, the plans to save The Smell began.

There is an online petition and a Go Fund Me page that to date has earned $23K so far. There have been fund raising shows but maybe none as exciting as the Save The Smell Fest which features an amazing line up of Smell alumni like No Age, Surf Curse, Kim The Created, Audacity, Lovely Bad Things, Heller Keller, So Many Wizards, Post Life, Wyatt Blair and much more. This show also promises a surprise guest of epic proportions (ok maybe I added that part) to be announced the day of the show and will be held at a kind of secret location too which is so DIY in and of itself.

Tickets are only $25 and can be purchased here.  ($35 day of show)

The Smell has succeeded for so long because of passionate volunteers. Be a volunteer, plop down 25 bucks- see a totally killer line up and feel good.

  1. I've seen a couple of other events at other places, but this was my first time in here. It was amazing! Great venues in San Francisco, it's smaller than those bigger places but it is still a fair sized venue. Food was great and I think it's recently renovated - it didn't seem old or anything.

  2. Excellent and useful information on your blog, thank you so much for taking the time to share with us. Amazing insight you have on this, it's nice to find a website that details so much information about different artists. I want to learn new things and i will come to you, For this purpose i will prefer a Cheap Airline Tickets flights in an affordable rates.
