The great minds behind the esteemed Echo and Echoplex went a little craybans with concerts on this July 25th – with shows at The Echo, First Unitarian Church and Santa Monica Pier. To feed the true local music heads and the social media beast – they’ve devised a wild scavenger hunt (#EchoTakesLA) that launches at 4 pm. By the way, that First Unitarian Church show is Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson as the Uncluded and we are giving away tickets to it here. The Pier is No Age and Tijuana Panthers and its FREE.
Posters hung at the venues listed above reveal pertinent clues that you’ll need to photograph and tag it on twitter w/ @TheEchoLA #EchoTakesLA and include info on who is performing at the venue of choice. If you are led to the “ultimate hidden show poster” – and you tag it… well there is a grand prize provided you’ve found the other 3 clues too. Plus there are prizes for those other uber-detectives that locate two clues.
Here is a scavenger map. Get on it at 4 pm.
