from the album Winged and Wounded
I am totally smitten over Swim Lessons entire album “Winged and Wounded.” Listening to Christopher singing these songs live on Friday night at Lot 1 in Echo Park was the highlight of my weekend. My heart felt so much joy listening to him sing the song “Someday” (Truly my favorite song). These are the magical moments that make me happy about finding new musicians to crush on their songs. It was so sweet to sing along to his song “Five Hours” too… it felt so nice how the entire audience including myself sang the lines “I will see you soon..” with him it was such a beautiful moment.

Hey Darling Friends,
Last Tuesday I participated in “Storytelling Tuesday at Echo Chamber..”
The cool thing about this event was that all the participants didn’t have to be present in order to share their story…There were many ways to contribute by leaving a message at the Echo Chamber voicemail, texting them the story, using skype in order to read it to someone who was in the space at the time, and by writing a short story and posting it in their page.
I wanted to contribute so I left a voicemail a poem titled “About The Girls.” This particular poem is super special to me, because it was inspired by Echo Park Rising. I had spent two days at the music festival and there was this interesting guy that I kept noticing in the crowd both days. Our eyes met each time in the dark club, but I didn’t get a chance to say “hi.” I know that when I was happily dancing to Froths’ encore we both looked at each other at the same time and I smiled and he smiled too but I think it was because we were just happy.
Friends take a listen to all of these great stories.
I had such a sweet time at Echo Park Rising and these are just a few pictures of friends with copies of their “All About The Boys…” zine…
Thank you Adolfo lead guitarist of the band Santoros for being so nice and letting me take your picture, while you waited to get inside the bar Little Joy.
Our other cool friend J. Dende was tabling at the Echo Chamber on Saturday and I bought some cool prints from his comic book Brunette. You should check out his Petty Cash Comix and I also gave him a Leon patch…
It was nice bumping into Nicholas guitar player of HOTT MT at The Echo he was so lucky that I was carrying with me copies of Suicidal Goldfish and a Leon patch. He also got copies of “All About The Boys…” and buttons…
I am so happy that my favorite band “Pastilla” got buttons and “All About The Boys…” zine after they played a set at The Echo for Lolipop Records vs. Burger Records at Echo Park Rising on Saturday.
I also bumped into Frankenstein at Lot 1 after the band Bastidas played and he couldn’t wait to cut out his paper boy at the end of the zine.
Members of the band Dead Bedouin Mike the drummer and the bass player Andrew stopped by the Echo Chamber to say “hi” and pick up Lisa’s bass for their set at Lot 1… Thank you guys for the cool picture.
It was so nice to stop by at the Echo Chamber on Saturday to say hi to Jen Venegas the writer of the zine titled “She is Not A Morning Person…” I truly love her purplish color hair…
Bianca one of the creators of the LA Zine Fest was super rad to let me take a picture of her with a copy of “All About The Boys…” zine.
I can’t wait for many of you readers to also get your copies of “All About The Boys…”
It has been a funtastic summer and now I am counting down the days for fall. (I want to wear sweaters and jackets…) This summer has been amazing from discovering new bands to crush on their music. The writers group meetings have been great, because I got the opportunity to meet other writers and artists. We had such great discussions about the writing process and yes friends I did get a chance to work on “The Fakes” and read this work in progress.
The best part of this summer was literally being part of Echo Park Rising and tabling at the Echo Chamber. I was able to collaborate with my best friend and make a new zine titled “All About The Boys…” I wrote it and she illustrated it… It was a lot of fun giving advance copies to our friends and favorite musicians… I truly can say that it has been a “magical summer.”
The Summer Writers Group is meeting this Saturday at Seite Bookstore bring your stories, poems, songs, journal entries… to read and share with us.
