Dublab: L.A.’s Premiere Music Collective Throws a Big Birthday Bash

Dublab’s birthday shindig promises concerts, live screen printing, and customized scents, all befitting a rebellious teenager.

When was the last time you had the chance to check out an experimental DJ set, design your own t-shirt, and buy customized scents reflecting sonic worlds–all on the same day? Probably never.

On September 21, L.A.’s own non-profit web radio collective, Dublab, turns 14. Founded by USC students at KSCR, Dublab promises a day filled with creative mischief. Catch sets by DJ Lengua, Cat 500, Carlos Niño, Salvia Plath, Sodapop, and others. Live screen printing pros HIT+RUN will design a Dublab t-shirt for you (bring your own shirt or buy one there). Check out the creative process up close when painter and music producer Teebs creates a painting on-site. There are tons of other things happening. The event takes place at Maker City LA. Check out the full program here.

Since Dublab’s first broadcast in 1999, the station has functioned as an independent source for music of all shapes and sizes. Introducing listeners to sparkling and often forgotten gems from the annals of music history is what the radio collective does best. Here are three obscure artists featured by Dublab:

Boogarins – Lucifernandis

Alaska y los Pegamoides – Bailando

Alessi Brothers – Seabird
