…or very few of them, we mean. Instead, there are a few more long-haired, black band-tshirt-clad people (of the metal kind, as opposed to the hipster kind) in Echo Park than usual today – the Echo kicked off its metal fest, “The Power of the Riff,” today at both the Echo and the Echoplex. There was a long wait earlier, but things seem to be pretty much kept inside for the time being.

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.
