So we got kind of snoozy and forgot to mention that last night was the first night of the three-night anniversary celebration of LA's Echo Park Records at The Echoplex. (Echo Park Records isn't actually a record label, but that's a long story.) If you didn't go, what you missed was Very Be Careful, Paul Devro, Dam Funk and Grupo Fantasma. Tonight is St Vincent and Foreign Born. Then Saturday is actually pretty fucking spectacular: Glass Candy, Los Super Elegantes, Arabian Prince, Guns 'N Bombs doing an all disco set, Appaloosa and Echo Park Records' resident DJ Travis. If you do go on Saturday and you see EPR main dude Alexis, tell him happy birthday and ask how he got that scar on his face. It's a great story.
