Echo Park is a place you once never went in to if you valued life and now you don’t go unless you have the perfect cuff on your pants. Though, with the transformation from ghetto paradise to hipster haven came a surge in great live music. My Uber ride from Venice over to this East Los Angeles suburb was only about $30, which is a steal if you have ever ridden a cab in the city any further than one or two blocks, and music venues are abundant. On any given day or night you can happen upon an Indie band blasting your ear drums at The Echo or slide in to Fix Coffee to hear soft melodies from a solo artist and their acoustic guitar. Which is exactly what happened when I visited the area for the first time. I do not remember the name of the artist performing that day at Fix but as I walked along streets of the city I saw that Ty Segal was performing that evening at The Echo and immediately bought a ticket. Further along the day I discovered that there were to be a multitude of shows that taking place that night. So if you can’t find a show to go to in Echo Park then you need to start reading the fliers that decorate the walls and street posts of the area.
