Hi Everybody! The Grand Ole Echo season has come to an end, and we’ll be back in the Spring 2012 for our seventh season! In the meantime, we’ve got plenty of things keeping us busy. We’ll be helping the New Los Angeles Folk Festival put together their “murder ballad” night on October 20th and we’ve already got a big Grand Ole Echo Christmas party in the works! And don’t forget that Julie, aka Carolina Chickadee holds her “Melody in the Round” at Taix in Echo Park monthly! Also, keep reading these newsletters…we’ll be giving away tix every now and again for shows held at the Echo and Echoplex!

-Paladino @ Genghis Cohen 10 pm
740 N. Fairfax Avenue LA 90046 www.paladinomusic.com
“Paladino,” the self-titled album from the group Paladino, is worth purchasing simply for the stellar track “Green Green Grass Of Home.” However, all of the other tracks are musically interesting and carefully produced in such a way that each song has more resonance upon successive listens. No one will ever call “Paladino” boring, and you might just call it the most fun you’ve had this year.”– CountryChart.com
