Dear Eastsider: Where is that music coming from?

If you ever wondered why the neighborhood is called Echo Park, then you should talk to Martin, who writes in about a dance party heard far and wide this weekend:

“Do you know the location of the booming vibrating dance music that has echoed around the neighbourhood for a second night? We first heard it Friday night (June 26) from home near the lake, south of Sunset. Then Saturday night I was attending an event off Lakeshore Drive in the hills. It was clearly heard starting at about 9 or 10pm. Returning home it was audible again like a distant rumble or booming, equally loud but clearly at some distance. Traffic, human voices and mocking birds are usually the only sounds at night here, this is something new and goes on very late.”

A sleepless Echo Park resident named Erika apparently found the source of all that noise and reports about it on the Echo Elysian Forum:

“Well i woke up at 3AM, uncorked my painful earplugs and it was still going
on…drove around the neighborhood looking for it for about an hour finally
located it at a place called “under the bridge” (close to 1168 S. Glendale Blvd.)”

  1. Google “strange sounds”. Happening all over. Or a hoax. One or the other.

  2. Um. Never mind, thought I was responding to today’s article. Which just had a headline but now seems to have an explanation.
