A partial list of performers was released today for Echo Park Rising, the Eastside music fest that has blown up since its first go-round five years ago. The preliminary lineup features a few well-known names including Hanni El Khatib, Boogaloo Assassins, and Dengue Fever alongside several lesser known bands who are, it seems, all in on a joke to make us sound like fools when saying their names out loud (Fartbarf, Gooch Palms, Slutever, Sex Stains). This year’s fest will take place August 14, 15, and 16. Check out the early roster below and stay tuned for the full bill.
