WHAT HE SOUNDS LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
Considering his album hasn’t even dropped yet (August 9th via ATO Records FYI), New Orleans native Benjamin Booker is doing pretty damn well for himself; he’s on tour with Jack White and booked for a slew of festival dates including LA’s own FYF. Inspired by The Gun Club, Blind Willie Nelson, and T. Rex, Benjamin Booker is a pressure-cooker of raw talent.

Nashville’s Diarrhea Planet make the sort of anthemic, rabble-rousing pop-punk that has made them the perfect tour mates for the likes of Titus Andronicus, JEFF The Brotherhood, Screaming Females, and the So So Glos. Hailed by Pitchfork as “the greatest live show on Earth,” Diarrhea Planet are sure to induce stage dives and drunken sing-a-longs, all without missing a note of a Van Halen inspired guitar solo.

WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
Taking their name from the esteemed Big Bang theorist, Norwegian electro-pop duo Lemaitre make highly infectious, club-ready tunes that would be equally as appropriate to soundtrack a sunset drive down PCH. Texturally-dense production achieved by self-sampling and live instrumentation puts Lemaitre at a level of ambition more akin to Phoenix and Daft Punk than any old EDM artist they may share a festival bill with.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
With beginnings similar to bands like Foxygen, indie rock duo Dub Thomspon spent their formative years at Agoura High. After graduating, the two signed a record deal and released their debut album early this year. Their sound mashes together the sound of 60s rock with 80s indie and a little bit of psych rock for a rad, high-intensity show.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
Tim Presley, who performs under the name White Fence, went solo in 2010 and quickly made a name for himself in the niche of semi-psychedelic, semi-garage rock. He’s released five albums in less than four years, two of which were with fellow psych-rocker Ty Segall. His music is distorted and warped in the best way possible and his guitar jamming skills are sure to impress this Thursday and Friday.

WHEN
This Thursday (7/24) AND Friday (7/25) at The Echo.

All about the art on this one.

Rad show coming to The Echo tonight via Aquarium Drunkard.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
Inspired by the likes of Damien Rice and D’Angelo, Jerome Holloway didn’t pick up a guitar until his mid-20s, but that hasn’t stopped him from becoming a buzzed-about songsmith within only a couple of years. Holloway’s smokey voice and honest, point-blank lyricism are sure to tug at The Echo’s collective heartstrings on Thursday.

WHEN
Opening for Ryley Walker on 7/17.

WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IT
Everyone loves a female wunderkind duo. Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad (rad name), met at everyones favorite DIY spot, The Smell, and started writing their raw, vulgar, intimate debut shortly thereafter. They’re undervalued and pissed off, and they’re going to rip at The Echo.

WHEN

Opening for Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas TONIGHT (7/15).

Burger Records x The Echo = Burger Saturdays


Burger Records
just about runs this town these days. The panache, the Miler High Life laden swagger, and the downright tunes set them apart in the world of slingin’ rock tunes and putting on gnarly shows.

We’re pretty jazzed to be putting together a series of 3 shows with the Burger folk for the next 3 Saturdays. The appropriately named “Burger Saturdays” is free for all y’all 21+ year olds, and $5 for those that aren’t.

Oh right, the bands.

This Saturday we’ve got The Aqua Dolls + more.

The 19th of July we’re lookin’ at Summer Twins + friends.

Finally, we’re finishing things off July 26th with Vision.

The Return of Twilight Concerts - A Santa Monica Pier Story

After a cozy 9 month hiatus, The Twilight Concert Series is back with us as producers, and we’d be hard pressed to be more pleased about this year’s rendition.

Known for its immaculate and Instagram friendly Santa Monica Pier location as well as wide variety of up coming, veteran, and overall enthralling musical acts, this year’s edition promises to be as memorable a summer as ever in our fair City of Angels.

Join us this Thursday, July 10th for the kickoff show with indie starlets, Cults and our friends James Supercave. Look forward to future performances by PAPA, Cayucas, OK Go, Jagwar Ma, Omar Souleyman, and more. RSVP for all of them via DoLA.

We mentioned all the shows are Free right?
