Voted by Filter Magazine as one of Los Angeles’s top 5 music venues, The Echo is coming-up on it’s 10th anniversary this December 3rd.
An eastside gem, the Echo has featured prime artists such as Beck, Band of Horses, The Decembrists and Vampire Weekend. Its helped launch the careers of acts with their notorious free residencies – including recently Foster The People (resident in early 2011).
Whether musical karma or just the vibe and standards of it’s surrounding, if you see an unknown artist at the Echo, chances are they could blow up soon after (Chain Gang of 1974, Tic Tic Boom!, Polaris At Noon, Cassettes Won’t Listen and many more are all playing the residency this month). But the Echo wears many hats; a venue that showcases fresh talent, hosts legit dance parties and simply remains a prime spot to hit the bar on a weekend night (Funky Sole, the free DJ fueled soul-funk dance party event on Saturdays is always good). It drew such attention that it ultimately opened Echoplex downstairs.
To thank all fans of the Echo in celebration of their 10 years, SUPERGOODMUSIC is excited to giveaway tickets to a few shows at this favorite hot spot in the next coming weeks.
Starting tonight, a few of you had the chance to win tickets to the Echo for 11.11.11, featuring Austra, Grimes and Baron Von Luxxury! It’ll be an evening filled with ornate and highly creative sounds from the underground disco beats of Baron Von Luxxury to the catchy synth-gothisms of Grimes, and Canadian trio Austra.
If you missed out on that – Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears with support from Sheepdogs is gonna stir up a stage of funky rock-soul and hot harmonies in the Echoplex downstairs. Its $18+ and tickets are $17 at the door. Unfortunately we don’t have tickets to giveaway to that show – but I promise it will be excellent. Just check out this video from Black Joe Lewis – “Livin In The Jungle” - if you’re not convinced.
