Occupying downtown LA for two days is that hippie-ish guy you knew in high school Jubilee, a not-so-huge-you-feel-claustrophobic/ close-enough-to-home-that-if-you-really-have-to-number-two-you-don't-need-a-porta-potty music festival featuring rad bands like Philly's Weezer-esque riff-rockers Free Energy and the super-raucous Black Lips. Tix are onsale now, right here
