SOUNDS LIKE:

THOUGHTS: It was my first time ever catching a performance at Origami Vinyl (one of my favorite indie record stores in Los Angeles, BTW). Bands set up on the second floor that overlooks the LP racks, so I asked the venue if I could position myself in the circular stairwell to snap a few pictures. It was a challenge, but a couple of them came out decent. Didn’t have an angle on the bassist though. Oh, and I really dig the trio’s sound. Dunno too much about them, but I’ve followed them on their social media outlets to keep up with how they develop. They are touring with the Allah-Las soon, so make sure you catch them on tour. As an aside, female drummers are sexy. Just sayin’.

Echo Park Rising | August 15-17th, 2014 | Homepage

There’s nothing I love more than free music. Now in it’s fourth year, Echo Park plays host Echo Park Rising; a three-day music festival showcasing the talents of local bands. With over 300 acts on the bill, I had to pick and choose the acts I wanted to see perform live. I think I chose … wisely.

Below are lists of acts that I was cable to catch. It’ll take me some time, but I’ll be posting photos and some brief thoughts. Keep checking back here to check out my posts!
