If you haven’t seen the Shrine, you should check them out now before they explode. With their minimal gear and vintage enthusiasm, they have the ability to start a set with high-energy chord-and-lead-lick driven songs, then push the throttle out even further by dipping into frantic numbers like “Freak Fighter,” which sound a bit like what thrash metal would be if it had evolved straight from Thin Lizzy and bypassed Judas Priest entirely.

The rise of this kind of all-day indie sockhop is proof L.A.’s warehouses aren’t just for freight, psytrance and the odd orgy anymore. The Nomad Gallery Art Compound, a friendly art-bunker wedged deep in untrendy Frogtown, embraced the underground party set’s chill equation of art + music + abandoned industrial space = fuck the Sunset Strip with July 4th’s raucous “New Weird America” Festival.
