The Second Collision – Filter Magazine Hosts 2nd Annual Culture Collide Festival 10.6 – 10.9

Like any supergood professional organization should, Filter Magazine is bringing their music celebration party crashing back. Culture Collide returns to Los Angeles for its second annual installment with another banging 4 day internationally flavored extravaganza taking place October 6th – 9th.

With Mr. Kool Aid like energy, current headliner CSS makes everyone move their feet. Without insulting last years event (because it was good), Cansei De Ser Sexy is a step above. Those are some wild women who are representing for all of South America (as of now).

Representing for the U.S. are a favorite of mine – Rainbow Arabia. Check out “Without You” if you’ve been sleeping on this pot of sonic colors. I also really dig Holiday In Congo (Mexicans With Guns Remix)…amazeballs, but hey, that’s me. I like a little womp with my indie at times. Jason Falkner, He’s My Brother/She’s My Sister, Handshakes, Young Liars and Spain also bear the badge of our U.S. steeze. Buck 65 and Snowblink hold it down for the provinces up North of U.S.

At this point, the fact that their are early bird $20 wristbands available should have you salivating…and then there is Europe.

Europe has already confirmed a gang of artists - Lindstrom for one. I also like Martin Clancy & The Witness Protection Programme. Switzerland’s Kassette,Disco Doom and The Awkwards. Indigo Tree, Paula i Karol, Ginga, Isobel Campbell, My bubba & Mi, Please The Trees, and BrainStorm too.

New Zealand’s Liam Finn – whom I’ve dug since I heard “Second Chance” is going to be there. And I’ll be there too. At whichever venue they’re putting him at on the East Side of Los Angeles.

The Yellow Dogs from Iran round out the lot of confirmations thus far. But rest assured, Filter will have more.

Wonder who will be this years Theophilus London? Will it be Chicago’s Keith Masters with England’s Futurecop!? Or Plan B? Or both? Who knows? Those FIlter people do. Stay tuned to Filter Magazine’s site and twitter for updates to the line-up and the latest deets. But – you could just keep it simple and buy a ticket now. It’s $20, it’s already worth it.
