Matthewdavid and Jonwayne to hit Long Beach for Dublab gig

September 8, 2011 |  3:13 pm

Despite being relatively close to L.A.'s percolating beat scene, the crates and laptops of Dublab DJs seldom seem to plant a flag on Long Beach soil in official fashion. That's about to change Saturday as the L.A. collective/radio station heads to Open, a boutique bookstore in the LBC for a daylong lineup of local bands and DJs from the collective featuring Brainfeeder artist Matthewdavid and Alpha Pup's La Habra-based young gun Jonwayne.

Presented by Long Beach event promoters Robots and Angels, the gig is a fundraiser to feed Dublab's nonprofit organization from 2 to 10 p.m. The $7 suggested donation at the door gets you a taste of sonic worlds colliding — from artsy and affectionate Long Beach bands like Feed the Feeble and Miniature Houses to boom bap beats and beard-scratching ambient rhythms of Matthewdavid and Jonwayne (whose mixtape "I Don't Care" just dropped yesterday).
