Echo Park's global electro dance duo, Rainbow Arabia have announced the roster for their June residency at the Echo. Starting June 7th, the band will curate a diverse group of artists every Monday night for that low, low price of free-ninety-nine.

For their first show, Brooklyn's spazzes Japanther will bring their lofi, retro (they're soooo 2005) sounds to the skinny-jeaned masses, and there will be a Pizza! party (as in the band Pizza!, so don't get your hopes up for Two Boots, ok? Ok.)

Later shows will include a DJ set by David J. from Bauhaus/Love and Rockets (is it uncouth for him to play all Bauhaus, all night? Let's hope not), and the bass-heavy dance freaks Afghan Raiders. Then there's some secret guests who will jump on stage. Wanna know who they are? Well, we can't tell you who they are yet, but being the nice blog that we are, we're going to give you some hints:
