Jackie Ojeda on Fidotrust Fest 2009
BY MICHAEL COYLE
Long Beach's Fidorust Records is throwing the 2009 Fidotrust Fest. It's in four Long Beach bars with mostly Long Beach bands, but Fidotrust label owner and fest promoter Jackie Ojeda hopes to draw people from all over.
But it's all in the name of a good time. Rate-everything website Yelp.com has come on board to host what Ojeda thinks might be a scavenger hunt sort of thing on the Big Red Bus.
"They want to do something on the party bus, and we said sure. I don't know exactly what they have in mind," she says.
As if getting access to 16 bands and two party busses were not enough, everyone who buys a ticket to Fidotrust Fest will receive a copy of the "Fidotrust Fest '09" compilation CD, which features a track from every band playing that night.
Fidotrust Fest '09 with Mike Watt and the Secondmen, the Soft Hands, Greater California, Thinking Aloud, Paperplanes and more at Alex's Bar, Que Sera, The Prospector and The Cellar. Sat., 8 p.m.. $10 pre-sale, $12 at the door of any of the four bars. For tickets and info, visit www.fidotrust.com.
