The Magic Kingdom has Tomorrowland; we’ve got Spaceland. Plus, more magical local bands, man.

L.A.’s independent music scenehttp://www.laweekly.com/general/feat...ie-land/15139/is kinda like Disneyland, in a good way: It’s not a single scene, but a collection of vaguely overlapping, inherently interconnected worlds with their own attractions. The Magic Kingdom has Tomorrowland; we’ve got Spaceland.
And so, in a highly unscientific, pretty tongue-in-cheek manner, we pay tribute this week to a couple of L.A.’s liveliest little worlds — the East-side indie-rock scene and the Stones Throw Records family — as well as some of the artists just off Main Street who made news this year. We couldn’t fit everybody, but we’ll getcha soon enough. Meanwhile, keep digging your scene.
