A New Residency @ The Echo! It's Corners!
Now that all that nasty June Gloom has passed, it's high time July kicked into full gear! To help get the summer going, The Echo has recruited L.A locals Corners to get your beach towel out and get them beach-punk feet moving! Lolipoppers and garage maniacs through and through, Corners bring, raw licks, lo-fi production and general troublemaking with each hi-hat smash and wall of reverb. It's perfect for some sweaty July nights and we hope to catch you in the fray every Monday night! Tonight's openers also include OV alums Froth alongside Dirt Dress and Drinking Flowers, so it's pretty much a perfect bill. Check some Corner's goodness below and we'll see you soon!

We've been digging it ourselves in the shop and can't wait to get wild with you tonight when the band hits the Roxy Theatre with METZ!

Coming all the way from our favorite neighbors to the north (Canada) Greys is touring on the release of their new album If Anything off of Buzz and Carpark Records and it kicks some serious butt. Self described as "loud rock" these guys sound like a mix between The Ramones and Wavves, putting a new-age twist on the classic punk rock sound with distorted guitars, shouting vocals, and catchy riffs that are sure to get you jumping all over the place.

Yellow Ostrich In-Store @ 3PM!
From their practice space in the heart of Brooklyn, Yellow Ostrich frontman, Alex Schaff, studied astronomers and stargazed from his tiny window, in search for songwriting inspiration. The result was their newest album, Cosmos, a dreamscape of astral guitar rock and electronic ambience that makes you feel like your floating through space! Building off their alt-rock backgrounds, Yellow Ostrich fused their modern sound with the a classic 70's psychedelic rock, creating a dense soundscape that might just make you see some stars on a gloomy LA night!
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah @ Troubadour 8/7 - 1 ticket comes with the purchase of CYHSY's newest LP Only Run!
