Music Tastes Good 2017

words by Joe Cortez, photos by Joe Cortez + Lexi Bonin

After a successful inaugural year in 2016, Long Beach's food and music fusion, Music Tastes Good, returned to the Beach this past Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1. Featuring a stellar and eclectic lineup of alt rock, hip hop and pop artists, Music Tastes Good was decidedly more relaxed and palatable change of pace to the string of fests that seem to occupy most Southland concertgoers' schedules throughout the year.

Check out photos from days one and two by Joe Cortez and Lexi Bonin below featuring: L.A. Edwards, TV Heads, Vinyl Williams, minihorse, Vagabon, Ledfloyd, Juana Molina, Diane Coffee, Heaven 17, Broncho, Slaves, Alvvays, Protomartyr, Of Montreal, Ride, Built to Spill, Ween, Joyce Manor, !!!, Big Freedia, Peaches, Digable Planets, Los Lobos, TUNE-YARDS and Sleater-Kinney.
