Theme of the night: crowd surfing. La Luz front-woman Shana, on vocals and guitar, was enthusiastically received by the crowd when she leant back mid-song into the arms of very happy fans.
Soko brought her new 80’s goth sound and punk attitude to The Bootleg HiFi in support of her new album My Dreams Dictate My Reality. Her performance was definitely not the soft-spoken, singer-songwriter folk that she was once known for.

Palma Violets–suited, booted and rocking the heroine chic. No Parents–no clothes, and no manners. This sold out show at The Echo last week was a fun warm up for Burgerama 4, where both bands were headed a few days later.

In anticipation of this year’s SXSW, Burger Records & Onward Indian kicked off their tour with a full night of wild performances from Gap Dream, The Aquadolls, and many more at The Echo on March 13.
