Poolside, Lion Babe among free FIGFest 2018 shows in June

FIGFest 2018 lineup

We’re breezing through the spring, which means it’s nearly time for some free Los Angeles summer concerts! Spaceland Presents has shared their calendar of Saturday shows for June happening at the FIGat7th shopping center.

Kicking things off on Saturday, June 1 is an awesome double-bill headlined by Los Angeles daytime disco duo Poolside and featuring Aussie indie pop artist Mallrat as support. Poolside always knows how to provide the right vibes to fit any mood, and I caught Mallrat at SXSW a few months back and can confirm that she’s an artist on the rise worth checking out.

Also on the schedule is June 8’s show headlined by NY R&B duo Lion Babe. Fresh off back-to-back appearances at Coachella last month, they’ll be back in LA for a free show you shouldn’t miss. Dave B will provide support.

On June 15, multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzon-Montano takes the stage at FIGat7th. Opening up the show will be Jarina De Marco.

In a huge surprise, Wavves will headline the June 22 date (announced on June 5), though it’s in the indie pop-punk genre according to the press release. Opening the show is Thumpasaurus.

I’ve been to a couple FIGat7th shows and always had a good time. They boast some damn good credibility at booking acts there that have gone on to great success. Anderson .Paak, The Internet, KING, and The Belle Brigade are just a handful of names that have played there.
