Happy Sundays 2018 X Indie Ignited

  • Alex's Bar 2913 East Anaheim Street Long Beach, CA, 90804 United States (map)

Indie Ignited is proud to join forces with Get Bent Presents and their multi-venue street festival aptly named Happy Sundays! Amazing partners Scott Montoya, former drummer of The Growlers, and Julia Kugel Montoya, singer of The Coathangers, founded the event that began in 2017 and had two installments. Now we have tripled it in size into an annual event that will blow your minds filled with free music and amenities unlike your standard music festival. This is all thanks to amazing sponsors like the eco-conscious Boxed Water and local brewing company Golden Road Brewery, who is a large supporter of music. Big thanks to the Zaferia district  in Long Beach where the event takes place who is making this all possible for all of you. Happy Sundays is what we like to describe as a little mini version of SXSW with a heart & philanthropic purpose.

Indie Ignited will have a special Indie Ignited curated stage at Alex's Bar! We are super happy to be presenting in this historic event and bring you some cool indie bands that we feel fit in with the Alex's bar vibe but are our Indie Ignited favorite picks! (Which you know what that means... these bands are LIT)

There will be a celebration of the life of Indie Ignited's dear friend Emery Becker in the first exhibition of the photographers work who was killed last March by a Hit & run driver and subsequent DUI driver. This will take place at The Long Beach Playhouse. Also to lighten your mood we will have comedy!

Check out for more details and RSVP on the facebook event page as we shoot to make major history on the streets of LBC, CA!
