Day two of EPR was yet another blast, this time with a bit more of a mission. Breaking off from the main party I caught a brief few of Crystal Antlers which produced one quick sketch. Then, after fueling up with a Rustic Rye IPA at Masa I headed over to 8bit studios to catch The Groms and The Hard R, both excellent. A few PBRs later and craving a nap, I found my way to Tierra Mia coffee for some pep and finished the evening near the Taix main stage. Myron and E instantly revitalized, throwing down Archie Bell and the Drells' "Tighten up", and Peanut Butter Wolf kept the energy going till close.
After an unusually busy session in the studio this morning I hopped the Blue line towards downtown, ultimately heading to the Echo Park Rising music festival. what followed was an evening of concert hopping. Catching one great show on arrival (Woods), then wandering the area finding great music at every turn, tonight has been a whirlwind. Woods, DeLux, Matthewdavid, Thumpers, Roses, Dante vs Zombies, all were phenomenal. DVZ wins the exuberance trophy, while DeLux still has me transfixed every time. And on top of all this a tidy batch of drawings came of it as well!
