Improvisational polymath Reggie Watt’s and legendary DJ John Tejada’s Wajatta lead the tenth annual Echo Park Rising music, art and local business festival Saturday September 26th. KCRW joins to co-present the free cyber event as businesses struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic. The single day live broadcast of established and emerging local talent celebrates the creative residents and businesses of Echo Park.

Additional Echo Park-raised performers also include psychedelic cumbia fusion specialists Tropa Magica, punk-folk artist Shannon Lay, multidimensionalist Girl God, impulsive punk rockers Trap Girl, virtuoso guitarist Naia Izumi, ambient layers of strings from Paul Sukenna & Mary Lattimore, DJ FLVLA (aka Flula Borg) with his time traveling friends Ivan and Peter, mood gem Skullcrusher, the Bob Baker Marionettes, space exploring musical weirdo Beatie Wolfe & Mark Mothersbaugh’s Postcards for Democracy project, with a slew of other artists.
