Once again we camped out at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual “Echo Beach” dog days of summer special. This is a bit different kind of Echo Chamber — as we actually played some rock ‘n roll: that twangy, instrumental surf rock (from the likes of the Ventures and the Del-Tones). Then, once the martinis were well shaken, we got into some soul and funky R&B. Things were really cookin’ and the Tiki Bar was heavy with kali smoke. So we cooled things down with a variety of lounge, world, and swanky jazz…and a bit of electro dub.
Thanks to local songwriter John Wills:http://www.myspace.com/johnwillsmusic for stopping by at 11am. His new album, Rose, will be celebrated with a party at the 331 Club September 11th. We also heard new music from Isobel Campbell Mark Lanegan, The Pistol Whippin’ Party Penguins, and more!
