1) Ever have one of those days when you realize you’ve booked some of your favorite up and coming bands all on the same night but at four different venues? What were we thinking?
Let’s make use of our Lyft apps and try to see it all! Creating a color coded timeline will not seem out of line. Tonight looks and sounds like this:
2) All that creative energy from NK RIOT had to go somewhere. So he recorded a new record and will celebrate its release on Friday. Part man maybe part machine, NK RIOT is a solo act that plays big weird dance music meets synth pop meets chip tune noise – all done in a robot mask and sometimes while rolling around on the floor. The term “interactive” isn’t just a buzzword for NK Riot, it’s his everyday.
Tickets for NK Riot at The Echo here.
3) The Penniback and Dirty Laundry team are back with the second “Dirty Penni” Fest”.
We told the kids to stick to skateboarding and find something better to do than putting on all ages indie rock shows, but they just wouldn’t listen And we’re actually glad they didn’t, because they delivered an insider’s guide of what’s coming up from the underground.
Artist highlights are sure to be Espresso, Sabrina is Not in This Chat, Girl Pusher and Flatworms. And let’s not forget the familiar faces that will be on stage: Deap Vally, the honorable Mike Watt, Plague Vendor and Starcrawler. The two room bash starts at 2pm, what a way to spend a Sunday!
Tickets for Dirty Penni Fest at The Echo + Echoplex here.
4) Celebrate 4th of July eve with PTP David Bowie night. That is one true human who knew the meaning of true independence and how to execute it like no other. We are happy to honor the Thin White Duke!
Tickets for Part Time Punks – David Bowie Nite at Echoplex here.
5) The kids are coming back from the road…and we’re welcoming FROTH with open arms and cold beer. This is a classic Echo Park line up as Froth play with their friends and our favorites Adult Books and Moaning. The show will feature songs from Froth’s beautiful noise /psych pop Wichita Recordings release “Outside (briefly)” This is the real EP deal.
Tickets for Froth at The Echo here.
6) Modern Funk Fest is a curated event put together by lovers of street funk, G-Funk and boogie backyard parties. For anyone who remembers early KDAY, has used an SPX 90 compressor, or just has to move when they feel the funk, this pure Southern California line up is for you… featuring DJ Battlecat, Moniquea, XL Middleton, Brian Ellis’ Reflection and the Funk Freaks Crew. This isn’t everyday stuff but pure music gold.

All for now…’til next time!
