THE ACT: Doja Cat | Facebook | Twitter SOUNDS LIKE: THOUGHTS: The first thing that caught my attention when  Doja Cat took the stage was her style. Her stylist should get a pat on the back, because Doja Cat’s features were striking. She, more specifically her face, was a lot of fun to shoot. Her music was … Read More Doja Cat | Echo Park Rising | 8/16/14

To Check Out Other Acts that I Caught At Echo Park Rising, CLICK HERE. THE ACT: Matt Kivel SOUNDS LIKE: THOUGHTS: A singer-songwriter whose mellow sounds could serve one well in the bedroom.
