Echo Park Rising is a beast.
“Who are you excited about seeing?” we’ve been asked many times over the past week as our mind turns to mush, inventorying the artists we have seen, we have seen multiple times, we have heard but never seen and we’ve only recently heard of. Truth be told, it was hard enough whittling our Echo Park Rising playlist down to 101 songs.
Echo Park Rising is free — and our strategy has always been to seek out artists new to us. You can always support your friends’ band (and you should) at a ticketed show. This weekend is for exploration.
||| Set times: Get them all right here.
Beyond that, the sixth annual neighborhood free-for-all is one big, beautiful mosh pit between your ears. And with that, we give you “Echo Park Rising, From A to Z in 101 Songs,” because alphabetical seemed the best way to handle things.
See you Saturday night, if not before.
