ECHO PARK — A trio of stars — Pharrell, Billy Joel & Kid Cudi — attracted attention across Echo Park late this afternoon and tonight.
Many Echo Park streets were gridlocked early this evening as tens of thousands of fans headed to Dodger Stadium to attend a Billy Joel concert (Pink and Axl Rose also joined in the performance). The concert earned raves on social media – “Billy Joel at Dodger Stadium. Living the dream” — but also prompted traffic warnings — “Echo Park Ave should still be avoided” — from Waze.
Meanwhile, about a half mile west of the ballpark, Laveta Terrace was blocked for the filming of a Pharrell Williams video, which had the street closed for most of the day. The pop star was filmed running down the palm lined street (thanks to actor Chad Christopher for the video) amid wrecked cars brought in for the shoot. Pharrell took a break to take a photo with rapper Kid Cudi on the street.
And that’s Saturday’s celebrity watch from Echo Park.
