Los Feliz Odd Market may be ending soon…

Los Feliz Odd Market may be ending soon…

That’s right. The space we have been using may not be available after the next couple of shows. A restaurant is negotiating to move in and they may start construction as early as mid-June. So come on down this Saturday before it’s too late. This week we have Vchos, Gourmeletas (Ice Cream Bars dipped in chocolate with toppings), Thai Fusion, Highland Hickory and the Lindo Taco Truck. Plus Naked Juice will be there with there truck dishing out samples! Let’s not forget our popups as well. From kids clothing to jewelry and fashion. Hope to see you there this Saturday 11-4 on the corner of Hillhurst and Ambrose.

Odd Nights gets an New Look

Odd Nights gets an New Look

Now in our 4th year, it’s time for a bit of an overhaul. We are excited about the new layout as it will open up more room on the field for attendees to spread out. Remember to bring your blankets & lawn chairs. The food trucks will now be located on the West Parking lot. We are changing the popups as well with just a single line of Vendors instead of 2 rows which will open up the line of site from the field to the popups. We hope you enjoy this new look and see you on Friday June 15th.

“The perfectly combined voices of James Combs and Erin Hawkins is the stuff legends are made of …  an incredible addition to any Americana library.”

“Perfect harmony. Excellent… the new sound of the West Coast.”  Americana UK

“JAMES COMBS IS ONE OF LOS ANGELES’ BEST SONGWRITERS.” Gary Calamar, KCRW

GREAT WILLOW: think close harmony singing and songwriting inspired by the best of the Laurel Canyon tradition. Mariachi horns here. Psychedelic guitar freakout there. Mandolins and resonators. Timbales and accordion. Poetic lyrics, cinematic landscapes. Great Willow is a modern take on the “Cosmic American Music” sound championed by folks like Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris, and the Byrds in another era.  But their perspective/approach is decidedly contemporary – somewhere in the musical neighborhood of Jenny Lewis or Dawes or Sam Outlaw. The songs are highly personal – like a box of sun-bleached photos.  

“Beautiful Twang” we call it.

Free Fall Rescue @ 6:30PM

Free Fall Rescue @ 6:30PM

Los Angeles-based Freefall Rescue is a Melodic Indie/Art Rock band that combines conventional and experimental elements of Post-Britpop, New Wave, and Progressive. The band’s sound is dynamic and lush, with eclectic arrangements and sonic textures emerging from guitar, piano, and synth. Driving rock rhythms are colored with melodic leads, vibrant passages, and celestial atmospheres.

The music is a gentle giant that ebbs and flows with evolving emotion and a sense of spirituality – soothing and vibrant, with a rock intensity and conviction. Thoughtful lyrics dive deep into subjects of community, humanity and love, with rising fervor and triumphant conclusions. It all seems to immerse you with their cinematic grand scale, as passages of rising intensity emerge onto unforeseen elevations that are immensely hopeful.

The band’s most recent release, the infectious single “Nightlife” shows the band’s more pop sensibilities, while still holding true to many of their signature qualities (Mixed by Moseman and Rick Parker – Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Lord Huron, Dandy Warhols). Freefall Rescue is currently performing select dates in Southern California while working on a full-length album, due out in Spring 2018.
