Help Mike! Benefit Show with an all star lineup of bands – at The Echoplex – Los Angeles, CA

January 25, 2013

Help Mike! Benefit Show with an all star lineup of bands - at The Echoplex – Los Angeles, CA – January 25, 2013For over a month this was a show that all of Orange County and Los Angeles had been looking forward to. Punks of all stripes and ages showed to support Mike Atta, the guitarist of Middle Class who is currently battling cancer at The EchoPlex for an epic show. With 13 bands and a ridiculously low price of $17 for admission proved too good to pass up. With both The EchoPlex and The Echo that is connected by stairs in the back of the venue, this event was festival like with bands playing consistently all night that included: Adolescents, Channel 3, Mike Watt, Shattered Faith, White Flag, Urinals, 45 Grave, The Abigales, The Peeks, Audacity, The Garden, White Night and a special opening set by Agent Orange.

Sure this could be the part of the show review where you could read all about every single thing that went down, yet as the old saying goes, "A photo is with a 1000 words"… well with a 100+ photos and 45 minutes of edited video, you should be able to come up with the 1000 words on your own.
