The Silver Lake Jubilee is a two-day music and art event featuring 35 music acts, multi-disciplinary art, local artists and crafters, food from local restaurateurs, interactive booths, and various cultural enclaves in the Silver Lake and surrounding communities (Spaceland, Origami Vinyl, buzzbands.la and El Echo Parqeuño are curating music for the event).

The event will have a very strong focus on the environment, including the implementation of “Zero Waste initiatives with the goal of 90% land fill diversion and sourcing power from alternative energy resources.” There will be several interactive “villages,” including a Children’s Village, Literary Village, Arts Village and Eco Village.

Everybody Was In The French Resistance…Now, Ezra Furman and The Harpoons at The Echo:

9pm. $8. 18+

If you don’t know the gimmick yet, Everybody Was In The French Resistance… Now is all about rewriting the biggest mistakes in pop history. Whether it’s telling Avril Lavigne to back off or correcting the likes of Bob Dylan on “Think Twice (It’s Not Alright)”, they’ve corrected some grave injustices in the popular musical landscape. But if you’re still not sure what’s going on, you can get a first-hand look when the band, lead by Art Brut’s Eddie Argos and The Blood Arm’s Dyan Valdes, tour the U.S. and Canada this April and May.

The tour kicks off April 23rd in Los Angeles, CA and darts all across the U.S. and into Toronto and Montreal before wrapping up on May 26th in Phoenix, AZ. In an interview with NME recently, Argos said he was excited to get out on the road, especially to get ahead of work on his day job band.

“I’m really looking forward to the tour,” Argos said. “Unfortunately Dave Newton, who played the European tour and SXSW shows, can’t make it. We have Ian Catskilkin from Art Brut instead, which will be useful for writing the next Art Brut album.”Consequence of Sound

with resident DJs spinning the best in Brit / Indie / Soul / Twee / Madchester / Punk / Glam

I See Hawks in LA

“Southern California is a land of strange, dangerous and beautiful contrasts. A mountain lion prowls outside the tract home bedroom of a teenage girl while she talks, oblivious to its existence, on her cell phone. A rattlesnake slithers across an empty shopping mall parking lot on a hot summer night while the employees count up the days profit and turn out the lights. While paparazzi chase the latest talent free celebrity, a talented, literate bunch of soulful musicians create honest and wise roots music for the ages. I See Hawks are indeed one of California’s unique treasures.” – Dave Alvin


Wheelhouse is Brian Whelan calling in every favor in his back pocket. A solo debut ten years in the making, Whelan has combined LA’s rich Americana history with the younger, snottier indie-rock of the city’s present day. As a member of the Broken West, Whelan explored the new(ish) frontiers of the independent music world, and while backing up Mike Stinson, Randy Weeks and Tony Gilkyson learned the ancient art of honky-tonking. Whelan loves the rock ‘n’ roll of Buddy Holly the way most of us love our mothers – don’t miss the chance to catch him live and in person. Band features Broken West leader Ross Flournoy and former Everest members Rob Douglas and Derrek Brown. The Grand Ole Echo

Mars Arizona

No, you can’t get there from here. You can stare at the map all you want and you won’t find it. Mars Arizona has a population of two, and is best apprehended with the ears.High Desert is the fourth album from Mars Arizona, the name Nicole Storto and Paul Knowles use when they’re fashioning their brew of country, rock, and roll. As a matter of practice they’re joined by some talented helpers including drummers Billy Block (Frank Black) and Ken Coomer (Uncle Tupelo and Wilco), fiddler Ollie O’Shea (Hank Williams III) and lap steel guitarist Paul Laques (I See Hawks In L.A.), and a host of others. – The Grand Ole Echo

From 2Headedhorse:


As you may know, our friend, artist/2023 mastermind Tommy Mose Abbott broke his leg over a month ago. He has been unable to work since then. To make matters worse, Tommy has been evicted from 2023! As you can imagine, it’s hard enough to find work and a place to live these days.



doors @ 8, music @ 9PM – cash bar

Thursday, April 1

We’ll be asking for $5 – $15 at the door. Every dollar will go directly to Tommy!

If enough funds are raised we can look forward to another comparable space opening up soon as this is such an unfortunate time to lose the space.

Come celebrate and give Tommy a big ol’ pinch on the cheek, Granny style!! And let’s all together mourn proper the passing of 2023!”

Once again Echo Curio has a lot of shows lined up to entertain the neighborhood. All shows are at 9pm unless otherwise noted. A $5 donation is asked for at the door.

Echo Curio is located at 1519 Sunset Blvd (at Laveta Ter).


Wowee-wow-wow-wow… we’re extra psyched for this show, as we all know the
CORSANO-FLAHERTY DUO, or possibly his work with Sunburned Hand of the
Man, Michael Flowers, Bjork or Jandek, and some of us will have experienced the
CORSANO-KOLOVOS DUO, but most of us have not seen Mr. CHRIS CORSANO
solo.  This drummer experimentalist will no doubt take us into realms undreamed
of.  As will our good friend Seth and his WARM CLIMATE project, whether it be in its
solo form or three piece mammoth form.  More to come on this show!!!



BRIDGE CAROLS was born of both LAURA GIBSON’s (amazing songstress for
HUSH) and sound artist ETHAN ROSE’s separate disenchantments with the written
and spoken word.  Together they have created an almost Gysin-esque way of
chopping and rearranging word and tone in new and challenging formats.  The
other three bands pretty much go about the same old way that everybody else
does, but man, do they do it beautifully.
