Swing House recording studios in Hollywood, California has seen some of the most influential bands of our time walk the halls of their music complex over the years. But this past weekend, on Saturday, July 26, 2008, it was the place to see and be seen as the cool kids of Los Angeles - the LA Yelp Elite Squad got together to support independent arts at the 'Yelping Yelping 1 2 3' art & music showcase.

The venue was wall-to-wall with art and music lovers alike celebrating "all things local" along with the folks from the Deli Magazine as they premiered the very first Los Angeles based print issue. Groove 24/7 streaming online radio station provided the soundtrack for the private Yelp Elite preview party before the Barnettes, winner of the 'Yelping Yelping 1 2 3' local band contest, kicked off the night with a killer live performance. Additional live acts to follow included the Deli Magazine's cover band, IO Echo, Swing House regulars, Astra Heights, Austin Hartley-Leonard, and Dylan Trees.

Let's not forget to recognize the extremely talented group of artists and musicians involved in putting this show together and a very special thanks goes out to Phil Jaurigui and his amazing crew over at Swing House for letting us share in the experience of such a memorable event!

Thanks to all who came out to party with us! Until next time...Rock on!
