I have seen all these bands this year with a few exceptions
Cherry Glazerr are at the Fonda Theatre this Friday
A coverage of the event looks like a daunting task
he was cute, confident and vulnerable
The performers tried very hard to make us forget about the weather
so I climbed on the stage, and found a good spot just behind the musicians, observing the incessant crowd surfing, thrilled by the experience and their dark-wave punk sound. It was the perfect ending for this Echo Park Rising, which was attended by 10,000 people according to the news, a really impressive number for a neighborhood festival, free for all, with no big stars or big names, just local bands, but a ton of them celebrating the rich diversity of Echo Park.
the overall brew was a mix of surf-60s rock beats, with a heavy Latino flavor in the lyrics,… well, they sang in Spanish of course. People knew all their moves, knew they could turn a nervous bass line into a cumbia dance party, and of course there was the expected song going overboard
