There's a three-day weekend coming up, y'know. (Whee!) So what better way to celebrate the day of our nation's labor to drive uptown to Chinatown and partake in some musical entertainment?
This year's FYF Fest (formerly the F Yeah Fest), takes place this Saturday at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, and features not only headliners like Black Lips (who just played Detroit Bar a couple of times in the spring), hilariously off-beat Adult Swim comedy duo Tim and Eric and No Age, but also several Long Beach bands: Crystal Antlers, Avi Buffalo and Dios. Good job, guys! No OC representation, sadly, but there are a couple of out-of-town acts we've written about lately in the OC Weekly: Kurt Vile and Telepathe. Overall, seems like a fun day at the park. Lineup info, straight from the official site, after the jump.

Oh, one more cool thing to tell you about: whichever band donates the most canned goods (all vegetables, no meat) to FYF Fest's LA offices, gets a midday slot on one of the stages. You don't even have to be in a band. As their site says, "if you want to do tell jokes, play guitar hero, tap dance or meditate on stage we are all for it." Finally, a chance to unveil my revolutionary glockenspiel/See 'n Say routine. Details here.
