The Scenesters run LA poster

Whether you consider yourself a hipster or prefer to deny it, you'll probably find yourself wandering over to Los Angeles' Downtown Independent theater at some point this week; after all, it's going to be pretty difficult to resist. The Vacationeers and Funny Ha Ha bring us 14 bands including The Franks, Big Search and Spirit Animal and seven nightly screenings of the black comedy/murder mystery "The Scenesters" for only $10.

So let's recap: music plus an off-beat comedy for less than the price of that t-shirt you were thinking about buying (and really, you probably won't like that shirt in a month anyway).

We've even helped you narrow down what nights to go on:

SUNDAY, AUGUST 22
"San Diego's sun-damaged tropical chillwave beacon Jeans Wilder opens for a L.A. beat scene star Baths, playing from his lauded debut, Cerulean."

THURSDAY, AUGUST 26
Show-stoppers The Franks present a ripping array of raw, hook-laden econo jams, and Lord Huron sound like Paul Simon on glo-fi drugs singing inside of My Morning Jacket's grain silo.

Tickets to see both the film and the music are $10 and can be purchased in advance through the Downtown Independent's website. A handful of the bands are actually featured in the film, and many plan to use the setting to their advantage, which means a big-screen audio-visual feast.
