Echo Park Rising is markedly different from most summer neighborhood festivals. Although there are a few outdoor stages, which this year are headlined by solo sets from garage-pop empress Shannon Shaw (Shannon and the Clams, Hunx and His Punx) and Warpaint’s Theresa Wayman (performing as TT), most of the action happens indoors at a variety of small clothing shops, record stores, bars and restaurants spread out along a milelong stretch of Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park. Echo Park Rising builds on the tradition of the early Sunset Junction festivals by celebrating the neighborhood’s dizzying variety of original indie rock, punk, country, folk and Latin bands, along with comedy, spoken word and unofficial pop-up events. Even though the fest is getting bigger every year, all the shows are still free. Also Friday-Sunday, Aug. 17-19.
