Photos From Last Night – Detour Festival

LA Detour Festival

    Thousands of eager hipsters and indie kids flocked to downtown Los Angeles on Saturday for the third annual LA Weekly Detour Festival. A forty dollar ticket bought access to the festival which featured 25 acts on 4 outdoor stages, spread across six city blocks around City Hall.

    In matching red tracksuits, Norwegian band Datarock played their afternoon performance which delivered a stimulating jolt of energy to the crowd. The dance-punk group performed their hit Fa-Fa-Fa, and closed off the set with a saxophone solo which served as quite a warm up for the rest of the evening. Shana Halligan’s sensual alto paired with the ambient-infused performance by Bitter:Sweet provided a chilled-out vibe reminiscent of a cool martini bar.

    As dusk set, those that skipped the soulful, disco-inspired sound of Hercules and Love Affair, probably could not help but wander into the large crowd at the Triforum Stage to catch the headlining band, Gogol Bordello. Call it gypsy; call it punk; the irrepressible, kooky multi-ethnic music collective played an energizing two-hour set, incorporating a fiddler and an accordionist to accompany the animated vocals of front man Eugene Hutz. Genre-bending progressive rockers The Mars Volta closed off the night to the biggest crowd of the festival. As the group finished their set, the experimental progressions and intoxicating presentation of their compositions left the crowd in an aura of satisfaction. –Shaunt
