Independent Venue Week at The Echo
July 11, 2018 • 8:00 pm PDT
Catch Liily at the Echo next Wednesday as part of the first US edition of Independent Venue Week. Independent Venue Week launches from July 9–15, 2018 to unite venues, rising and established artists, promoters, labels, media, and tastemakers across a nationwide series of gigs.
For this debut US edition, Independent Venue Week will include one show at one participating venue per city. These venues have been handpicked to represent the diverse community of performers and spaces that Independent Venue Week supports. This limited number of venues echoes how the event was originally introduced to the UK. Artists playing Independent Venue Week shows include nationally revered artists including Deafheaven, The Get Up Kids, and Phoebe Bridgers; many shows will highlight local talent such as Falling Stars, Western Medication, and The Night Screams. The event will also feature Chuck D—social activist, author, and co-founder of legendary group Public Enemy and member of Prophets of Rage—as its honorary artist ambassador.
