our first fmly fest was in december of 2009, celebrating the opening of an arts space known as mcworld in los angeles' historic mid-city. mcworld was a cozy, live-in building occupied by the magic johnson, things, and dream panther. the poster is courtesy of geoff geis of the los angeles staples pizza! and so many wizards.

the lineup was entirely los angeles sounds, with the exception of asss [mems of wampire, breakfast mtn] who were on tour from portland. a forest was collaboratively built throughout the first day, and after the show everyone was invited to spend the night in mcworld. the sounds of respectful jams blanketed by vinyl rotations ended the night. the second day we played among the trees, painted the outside of mcworld, and agreed that this needs to happen again.
