Brokechella is Back! And It's Still Damn Cheap
Not enough cash for Coachella this year? Too burnt out from sandstorms and empty-Daft Punk promises to try round two? Perhaps you don't care about any of that and just enjoy drinking outside. Whatever your reason, Brokechella might be what you are looking for.
Now in its third year, this festival happens this Saturday, in downtown, and it's still cheap. Ten bucks will grant you entry, and the event will feature sets from acts including Mystery Skulls, TeamSupreme, and Body Parts.
"We were really able to go through these submissions and pick out so many different genres," says Negin Singh, executive director of cARTel Collaborative Arts LA, the organization that puts on the event. "Post-punk to dance synth to really great Irish rock -- really, there's something for everybody."
In addition to live music, festival-goers can expect "all-encompassing" art installations from local visual artists, face painting, and cheap food and drinks.

The event is 21+ and Singh recommends you take a cab -- beer and wine will be only $3 from 4pm-6pm, and $4 for the rest of the night.

"Come to Brokechella if you are looking for a reason to connect and feel good about living in LA," Signh says, adding that venders, musicians, and artists were hand-picked L.A. cityfolk.
