Listless summer days. Warm colored gradient. Wake, burn, repeat. Rise, set, rise, set, rise, set, echo, set, park, set, rising. What?

This weekend the sun and Echo Park rise together for the 4th annual Echo Park Rising music fest.

Now you probably know what's up. You guys are cool - we know this - we're gonna respect that.  (Ahem - but just in case, you can CLICK HERE for the festival's gritty details)

The real magic comes here:
OV has a lineup of Echo Park Rising in-stores all weekend and darn-it if you won't want to come hang here and check them out.

What follows is a list of said in-stores organized by time and day. No time for thank you's - just read:

4PM: Bür Gür – Sample-centric indie pop from behind a computer screen- punching buttons, playing guitars. Sweetly singing the tears from your eyes.

5PM: Archer Black – Dense, orchestral indie rock that writes your ears into a movie score. Avante enough for the thinkers, dense enough for the feelers.

6PM: Vug Arakas – Rock and roll and rock and rock and roll. Classic as coke in a can, Vug brings Westerberg style vocals and lyrics into the now.

7PM: Luther Russell – A multi-instrumentalist capable of a veritable triple threat of psychedelic acoustic strummers, piano ballads and road trip rockers.

8PM: Tennis System – When punk straps on its shoe gaze and tops it all with deadpan surf rock vocals. We’re Down.


4PM: Island Boy – What do french house, reggaeton, latin freestyle, and new wave have in common? Island Boy.

5PM: Omid Walizadeh – The once hip hop producer digs into his roots to bring us beats and bass injected with a painstakingly curated slew of samples from rare Persian tapes and vinyl from the 60’s and 70’s.

6PM: Tashaki Miyaki – All the glassy chimes and charms of dream-pop with a heart parked hard in lo-fi, garage spirit.

7PM: BOUQUET – Contemplative, art pop. Delicate, smooth and slightly psychedelic, BOUQUET works to marry the auditory and the visual in an intentional, pristine package.

8PM: The Mynabirds – Singer/songwriter Laura Burhenn brings her distinct, soulful vocal to a canvas of percussive, pointillist, pop rock.

It's a big weekend. I'm particularly stoked about BOUQUET so here's some listening material:
