Showcasing names like Moon Honey, Battle Tapes, Jr., Death Lens, and Yung Bae, Brokechella, which unfurled in downtown L.A. over the weekend, is the underground alternative to the goliath of SoCal music fests (Coachella, obviously). Organized by arts collective cARTEL, Brokechella has been in business since 2011 and has grown significantly since then. Still, the ticket prices are affordable, the schedule is cutting edge, and the vibe is super hip.
