LAPD has shut down echo curio curiosity shop & gallery, a small los angeles area venue (in echo park) claiming lack of proper “entertainment” license.
with the rising population of hipsters in los angeles, this has forced “true” hipsters to find more underground venues, like echo curio, for congregating and discovering new bands. its likely this threat of uncontrollable growth has forced the no-fun police to attempt to extinguish any sign of budding community.
which venues will be targeted next? 6th street warehouse? vacation vinyl? origami vinyl? thesex?
UPDATE: art shows will carry on but music performances are cancelled until further notice.
