Fenech Soler Monday Night Residency @ The Echo!
Sometimes when the world gets this hot, music is the only thing that gets those legs moving. And so for their September residency, our buds at The Echo have booked the eminently danceable Fenech Soler to motivate those calves and thighs! Purveyors of groove-centric electro-rock, Fenech Soler have recently embraced their pop leanings with heartfelt punch, opening up their hearts and dance moves to the world with 2012's Rituals, which catapulted Fenech Soler to widespread attention across Europe. Now looking to conquer U.S soils, Fenech Soler take over The Echo tonight at 9PM and are ready to get those sloppy September feet jumping again. To get ready for tonight's show, check out Fenech Soler's single "Magnetic" below and then meet us at The Echo at 9!

Floating Action In-Store!
Named after a vintage bass drum pedal of the same name, Floating Action of Black Mountain, North Carolina backs a punch with their blend of music styles. Part folk, part psych rock and part soul music, this low-fi bedroom rock band represent the melting pot of American roots music with a twist. Led by frontman Seth Kauffman, the band has put together two full length albums that feature floaty and comfortable songwriting with the warmth and character you'd hear when listening to a vinyl. Their album which was quoted as an "explosion of inspiration" is a triumph to say the least! So come on down to OV tonight @ 7PM to watch Floating Action perform in our loft!

Mechandise @ The Echo!
It's shows all weekend long as Merchandise take the stage tonight at The Echo! Merchandise is a band fighting against the easy categorization reserved for abbreviated biographies. The project is equal parts punk misanthropy, maudlin balladeering, fine art, low humor, classical study, psychedelic spacecasing, mad science and pop genius. Touring in support of their 4AD debut After the End, Merchandise arrive at The Echo tonight buoyed by widespread critical acclaim, receiving plaudits from Pitchfork, Stereogum and NME. Given this success, tonight might be the last time you'll be able to see this Merchandise up close. So get to The Echo tonight and join us for a night of great music with Merchandise!
