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?

The Return of Saturdays Off The 405!

Summer in Los Angeles is upon us! One of the gems of this time of year is our aptly named concert series collaboration with The Getty, Saturdays Off The 405.

Between May and September, enjoy 6 expertly curated and eclectic outdoor musical adventures in the stunning outdoor courtyard at The Getty Museum. The concerts are free of course, and each act is paired with an equally talented DJ to take your spontaneous grooves into the night.

On to the talent!

Way Over Yonder Festival - A Preview

In the minimal chance that you haven’t noticed quite yet, we wanted to give a friendly reminder for, and riveting preview of the Way Over Yonder Festival that we are co producing with the experts at Newport Folk Fest.

What is Way Over Yonder you say?  Quite simply, a fantastical two day festival at the striking Santa Monica Pier, this Saturday and Sunday, October 5th and 6th.  Some amazing performances are in store for you all on two stages (one sharing the same space as the famous Santa Monica Pier Carousel, which will be spinning between sets) from the likes of Conor Oberst, Neko Case, Calexico, First Aid Kit and more.  Craft and food vendors are ready to sling their well curated fares, and the beach sunset is ready to leave you short of breath.

Are you a visual learner?  Here’s a picture.

Single day, two day, and a multitude of VIP tickets are all available, along with some answers to frequently asked questions, right over here.

Feel The Love with #FebruaryFreebies

February is just steaming with music to adore, cuddle up with, and at least moderately obsess over at no monetary cost to YOU! Let’s start with our 3 amazing residencies from Kera & The Lesbians (Mondays at the Echo), Kan Wakan (Mondays at Echoplex) and The Belle Brigade (Tuesdays at The Echo). They’re attractive, they’re passionate, and they absolutely rip on stage, don’t mess this up by not witnessing this in person.

Next is a very special Funky Sole at the newly spruced up Grand Park in Downtown LA on the big day (Valentines) itself. Catch fiery sets from Breakestra, Orgone and more at the Free / All Ages affair.

…and the last of the #FebruaryFreebies, post an Echo love story to the Echo FB page and you’ll have a chance to win tickets to an Echo show of your choice. Find your wife/girlfriend/affair/partner/midweekfling at The Echo? Let the world know!
