PART TIME PUNKS takes place at The Echo on 1822 Sunset in Los Angeles, every Sunday night.

PART TIME PUNKS is a club that takes over noted Echo Park live music venue, The Echo on 1822 Sunset, every Sunday night. The night focuses heavily on DIY and Indie vinyl coming out of the U.S., UK and Europe from 1977 to the present: Punk, Post-Punk, Synth-Punk, Synthpop, Minimal Synth, Dark/Cold/Minimal Wave, NDW, Industrial, New Wave, No Wave, C86, Indiepop, Twee, Shoegaze, Baggy and even Krautrock…


    Northern California's WHIRR (formerly Whirl) make an effects-laden noise that is as blatantly loud and heavy as it is beautiful, giving the sounds of 90's shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era.  The young sextet's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listeners into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang in perfect balance. 

    Listen to WHIRR.

    Meet NIGHT SCHOOL, northern California dreampop 3-piece fronted by Alexandra Morte (formerly from WHIRR and CAMERA SHY!).  Pure bliss rock inspired by the sad love songs of 1960’s girl groups like The Shirelles, The Crystals, and The Shangri-las meets dreampopshoegaze textures ala Cocteau Twins, MBV and...well...Whirr.  PTP is SUPER stoked to be able to add them to the bill at the last minute!

    Listen to NIGHT SCHOOL.

    Brand new LA-based femme-fronted janglenoise outfit, BLOOD CANDY, make their debut at PTP tonite! Blackpsychotambourinecandy.

    Listen to BLOOD CANDY.
