Fuck Yeah Fest 2009 In Photos

In its sixth year, Fuck Yeah Fest had the explicit intention of benefitting California’s state parks, and implicit intention of scaring away media outlets afraid of things with “Fuck” in the title. (Well OK: this year did bring the family friendly name change to FYF Fest, which is pronounced Fuck Yeah Fest Fest I think.) For those who paid the $20 to Fuck it up at the LA State Historic Park on Saturday there was, fittingly, Fucked Up. There was also an eclectic lineup of hard-edged bands — everyone from Wavves to Black Lips, from Torche to Tim & Eric. (The Awesome Show Great Job dudes did a rare real music set with Tim on guitar/vocals and Eric on percussion/vocals. I wanna meet that, dad.) Angela Gail brings back some photos of the day, but if you weren’t there and want some pithy reviews, here’s the festival in haikus.
