Looking for a last-minute Labor Day weekend getaway? While we would normally not condone a trip to L.A., with The Rapture, Panda Bear, !!!, Local Natives, Dead Man's Bones, Thee Oh Sees, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Washed Out, Delorean, Best Coast, Wavves and much more, Saturday's FYF Festival is just too good to pass up.
