Today we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of FYF Fest for the 6th year in a row. That’s right— six years of bewildering musical mayhem as brought to you by Sean Carlson and Phil Hoelting of FYF Fest Productions, (aka self-proclaimed ‘Geniuses at Work’).
Saturday & Sunday, September 1st and 2nd, the festival will again take place at the LA State Historic Park. Nestled between Chinatown and Downtown Los Angeles, this two-day festival event spans four massive stages and will feature performances by more than 90 musical guests, stand-up comedians, and potentially a live goat or two, (not kidding). As well, you’ll experience a heap of local food trucks and retail vendors from across Southern California’s expansive independent community.
Come join Incase and an expected 26,000 music lovers as we all laze the day away and celebrate the arts. By the way, we’ll be giving away custom-made FYF tote bags and limited edition FYF Snap Cases for iPhone 4S to 500 patrons per day. We look forward to having you with us.
This Friday, July 20th, please join us at THIS los angeles from 7-10PM for the opening reception of the new solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based sculpture artist Jon Rajkovich.

Arrive early to snatch a swanky tote for your beachy lyfe, stay late to enjoy a night of sculpture with your breeziest summer pals.
And, while you’re at it be sure to stop in next door at Mount Analog, the rare vinyl and events space newly opened by our friends Zane Landreth and Mahssa Taghinia. We look forward to seeing you this Friday night in Highland Park.
In just a little over 72 hours a throng of joyful, minimally attired patrons will again glide briskly onto the fields of Chicago’s Union Park to attend the 8th annual Pitchfork Music Festival.
Held July 13-15th, Pitchfork is by far North America’s most eagerly anticipated outdoor music festival of summer. As a returning sixth-year sponsor we’ll be on hand gifting Pitchfork performing artists, festival attendees and production staff with a barrage of helpful Incase goodies.
As always, we recommend bringing a hat, ear plugs and comfy shoes. Maybe remember to eat snacks and drink water— it’s gonna be an all-day scorcher. Yup, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Grimes, Chavez, The Field, King Krule and Thee Oh Sees are all playing.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago soon.

We invite you to meet fellow diners and shoot the breeze with dublab’s extended family of highly turned-on heads.

This past Friday the folks at THIS los angeles in Highland Park, CA held the opening event for The Art Dump’s Clocked In exhibit, featuring the work of the creative team behind Girl Skateboards, (Eric Anthony, Hershel Baltrotsky, Michael Coleman, Andy Jenkins, Christian Morin, Andy Mueller, and Chris Waycott).
For the occasion we worked with The Art Dump and THIS gallery co-owner Justin Van Hoy to create 100 limited-edition tote bags. Yes, the cubicle-inspired office graphics were mega tough to take upon first glance but should mellow nicely with time and repeated washings. If you were lucky enough to get your hands on one, please let us know. They were all gone by the time we got there. :(
Thanks again to everyone who came out to support Clocked In, and extra special thanks to THIS los angeles for making it happen. We will see you next month. Enjoy the photos.

It has been a wild week for ye olde Incase Music & Events department. As a fifth-year returning sponsor of the MWTX party during SXSW, we saw too many bands to remember, walked too many miles to count, and ate too much BBQ to recall when one meal ended and the next began. As well, we gifted a dizzying array of Incase products to over 180 performers, production personnel and MWTX attendees.
For 2012, Transmission Entertainment and FYF Productions staged the event in a beautiful 20,000-square foot warehouse with an adjacent 20K-sq ft. of outdoor space. With two stages, thirty performing acts, and more than 30,000 attendees spread out across all three days, MWTX was once again the largest unofficial event of the entire SXSW music conference.
We’d like to extend our thanks to Rosa, Johnny, Brendan, Graham and Max at Transmission Events, and to Sean, Phil, Mike and Kate at FYF Productions. And last but not least, thanks again to director/photographer Jared Eberhardt for helping us capture a few of the week’s finer live performances. Enjoy the Flickr photos. See you next year.
March 15-17th, Incase is excited to again sponsor the MWTX party during the annual SXSW music conference in Austin, TX. Now in its sixth year, this FREE, ALL-AGES music festival has become the most anticipated unofficial gathering of the entire week.
Please join us for three days and nights of live performances from (among others) Built To Spill, We Were Promised JetPacks, Deerhoof, Titus Andronicus, Cloud Nothings, Chairlift, Ceremony, White Arrows, and Yelle (DJ set).
In total, nearly 30 bands and electronic artists will grace the stages of the 20,000 sq-ft MWTX indoor venue and adjacent 20,000 sq-ft outdoor courtyard. Whether you wanna lurk in the dark or bask in the sun, it is guaranteed to be a great time for everyone. Drink water, bring earplugs. We’ll see you soon.
