ECHO PARK RISING
Saturday, August 20:
Day one highlights included Pompeya, an amazing indie pop band from Moscow with a real talent for arresting and beautifully crafted songs with an unpretentious and direct delivery that transfixed a large audience at Echoplex. Ghost Lit Kingdom, which features powerful four-part harmonies, and Dios, back together again and sounding better than ever.
Day two brought me to Sand Babes, Broadcast Station, and Send Medicine, three new must-see-again bands.
But I've fallen behind and there's simply too many bands to sample them all before I go to the festival. So I'll be winging it today. But I hope to see Gregg Garvey and the Wintergreens, Billy Changer, Ryan Fuller, Korey Dane, Drinking Flowere, SWIMM, FEELS, Froth, The Black Heartthrobs, Donna Bummer, Bloody Death Skull...oh hell! I'll just go over and see what I find. Sorry, no links or photos, No time!
