Lee Ranaldo At The Echo, Sunday November 8th 2015, Review

By Alyson Camus | November 10, 2015

It was my first Lee Ranaldo show, and seeing him doing an acoustic gig with his numerous guitars, was the perfect introduction and setting to truly appreciate what a master he is.

Oldies But Goodies: METZ At The Echo, Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

By Alyson Camus | August 15, 2015

METZ is another band playing at the FYF Fest this year. I have seen them several times but I want to catch them again as their shows are always an empowering experience with the ghost of Nirvana floating above their explosive sound. I saw them for the first time in 2012 at the Echo and this was my experience at the time:

Pretty Little Demons, Queen Kwong, Pins At The Echo, Monday June 15th 2015 Review

By Alyson Camus | June 17, 2015

With their blend of retro and modern punk, they managed to open for Sleater-Kinney during their last tour, which is probably not an easy task to accomplish. An all-girl band opening for an all girl-band, just imagine the competition! But Pins doesn’t even want to look or sound like the cool trio from Olympia, they want to have fun, delivering harmonies over pop melodies, speeding up at time without going overboard, bringing head banging with a real noise punk inspiration, while letting the power chords have the best part.

Christopher Owens At The Echo, Thursday June 4th 2015 Review

By Alyson Camus | June 5, 2015

At this moment, I am sure everybody was thinking at unison, ‘I wish he was still with Girls’? This will probably be always in the back of our minds, but with his blonde hair hiding his face, fragile vocals and his vulnerable appearance, Chris Owens looks so frail at time, you just wonder if he can put on a show, but after a few minutes, you are convinced he certainly can!

Feels, Burnt Ones, Corners And Cosmonauts At The Echo, Sunday December 14th 2014

By Alyson Camus | December 17, 2014

I spent another Sunday night at the Echo, and this brought me right back in the middle of last summer, with a ‘Part Time Punks’ soiree featuring Feels, Burnt Ones, Corners and Cosmonauts… another sleep-depraved 24 hours in perspective to start the week, but it was all worth it

Corners Residency At The Echo With Debt And Adult Book, Monday July 28th 2014

By Alyson Camus | July 31, 2014

The cool thing with these residencies is that the crowd is full of musicians enjoying the set of other bands (I recognized at least one of the Mystic Braves), and my Silver Lake-Echo Park neighborhood looks like a big family of musicians packed inside the Echo, right?

Kera and the Lesbians at the Echo on Monday February 3rd, 2014

By Alyson Camus | February 11, 2014

Kera is not your average frontgirl, she is so dynamic, so full of life, looking like a little happy volcano always ready to explode at any moment with her songs, that the show was pure joy and fun. The band may have found the right description to fit their cute songs bursting at your face in repeat, ‘bipolar folk’

The Flytraps, Chad & The Meatbodies, Death Hymn #9 & Criminal Hygiene At The Echo, Monday January 13th 2014

By Alyson Camus | January 16, 2014

It’s very hard on weeknights for everyone but these Criminal Hygiene Mondays residencies are full of super badass bands, and last Monday, presented by Dirty Laundry, was no exception

MT. OSSA At The Echo, Wednesday July 10th 2013

By Alyson Camus | July 13, 2013

a good-sized crowd had come to plunge into their surfing-dancing psychedelia

Infantree At The Echo, Monday May 13th 2013

By Alyson Camus | May 17, 2013

So many indie bands sound alike, but Infantree was showing a real uniqueness which was certainly borrowing from the 70s and way beyond, ‘Fibber’ had a little bit of this Jefferson-Airplane-Grateful-Dead-CSN-hippie generation smoking through the cracks of the song
