One of my favorite clubs in Los Angeles, Part Time Punks, takes place every Sunday at The Echo. It’s where you go every week if you want to dance to No Wave, Post Punk, Indie Pop and other obscure music.The club has become notrious for their Smiths night, and many celebs have cut moves on their dance floor–from Karen O to Chloe Sevigny.

Now the club is putting on the first Post Punk Festival since the early 80’s. The Part Time Punks Festival will take place on Nov 16th at The Echo and The Echoplex. The first 100 tickets will be sold for only $14 via ticketweb and should sell very quickly.

The club has put together a pretty amazing line up, featuring the first performance in 20 years from A Certain Ratio. Also playing is the couldn’t be hotter band of the moment Vivan Girls. The rest of the stellar line up features Pylon, Love is All, Medium Medium, Savage Republic, Warpaint, Mika Miko The Nightingales and many more. Doing special dj sets are David J. (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), Dave Newton (Mighty Lemon Drops),  Chuck Warner (Messthetics/Hyped 2 Death) and Dan Selzer (Acute Records).
