Filter Magazine will host its second annual Culture Collide Festival from October 6-9, 2011 through out a variety of venues in Los Angeles, featuring musical artists from over 23 countries.

As an official partner of the festival, The Lucie Foundation, will curate a pop-up gallery at the ReForm Academy in Echo Park during the festival, featuring about 30 pieces of work from local and international photographers, reflecting the diversity of the festival’s artists.

Bruce Talamon takes us back to the glory days of Bob Marley and B+ finds hidden gems in record stores through out the country. Catherine’s McGann’s 15-year contribution to New York’s Village Voice, gives us a look at the early days of some famous music makers as Sheryl Nields gives us the vision of new.
