Yes, it’s true. Echo Park Rising is COMPLETELY free for all to attend. In it’s 5th year, Echo Park Rising is a showcase of both local and national talent of the most talented bands and musicians. It’s a spotlight on the east side of Los Angeles, the hub for music and food in ALL OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!.
Multiple venues will be participating in showcasing talent at Echo Park Rising, such as the Echo and Echoplex, The Gold Room and a “Main Stage” for bigger bands and talent that will be located behind Taix on Liberty Street.
Janky Smooth is giving away 2 full Echo Park Rising VIP tickets to one winner which will insure you have a spot at shows that hit venue capacity, with a separate VIP viewing area, line skipping privileges, easy bar access and “Goodie Grab Bags” (while supplies last). Venues, lines and viewing acts can feel like cattle hearding at events like this. Make sure you don’t have hurry to any show or spend an hour in line trying to get a beer or cocktail.
