A hearty happy anniversary goes out to The Echo – the long-time music venue that has hosted pretty much every type of band is celebrating 10 years in the ‘hood. They’ve been posting pictures and videos of their fave shows from the past 10 years each and every day of December on their Tumblr site. In the meantime, there are some great shows for the month, which we’ll also continue to post in our weekly Echo Park’s Week in Music updates.

Tonight is Allen Stone and ZZ Ward, and Saturday is the return of the “Irregular Wine Tasting,” during which you’ll get to enjoy six West Coast wines from Darcie Kent Vineyards and Duck Pond Cellars while watching 1988 flick Miracle Mile (somehow the tasting is timed with the movie). Tickets are $20, click here to purchase and for more info.

The lineup for the rest of December includes:

Caveman, Races, Hands on December ember 8
The Soft Pack, Abe Vigoda, Slang Chickens, So Many Wizards on December 9
Kind Hearts & Coronets, Black Flamingo, Seasons, Virginia Reed, special guest DJ Devendra Banhart on December 13
White Arrows, Youngblood Hawk, Pollyn on December 15
Hang the DJs vs Club Underground with Yip Deceivers December 17
The Fling, Yukon Blonde on December 22
The Growlers (closing the party out with three nights) on December 28, 29, and 30
