Dublab Turns 8, Goes Non-Profit
- Words: Fred Miketa
Los Angeles-based dublab (a.k.a. a rad music/art collective, radio broadcaster, and breeding ground for some of the city’s most exciting events) is celebrating its eighth anniversary in style. In addition to launching an expanded website, the collective has also announced that it's going non-profit, ensuring that it carries out its mission “to spread truly progressive music and art free-of-charge to open ears.” For those unfamiliar with Dublab, its radio broadcasts and podcasts have boasted studio sessions with the likes of Thomas Fehlmann, Deerhunter's Bradford Cox, Animal Collective, and Matthew Dear, in addition to resident DJs like Dntel, Daedelus, and Nobody.
As part of the process of going non-profit, dublab is also hosting a Future Roots to Infinity fundraiser until November 19. The Labrats will be broadcasting live throughout the campaign, along with a series of surprise special guests. All donors will receive complimentary download sessions, an exclusive mix, plus other dublab swag. And what good would an anniversary celebration be without a total rager? On November 7, the collective is throwing an Echo Expansion party at L.A.’s The Airliner, featuring dublab resident Dntel, Nobody’s psych-project Blank Blue, Gaslamp Killer, and more. Viva dublab!
