The second day of the Bottled Smoke Festival continued last night at Mr. T’s Bowl in Highland Park after a full day of bands at Echo Curio in Echo Park. Mr. T’s was the only portion of the festival that cost money, but $8 got you a lot, including the powerful ambient noises of one-man show Ghosting, instrumental rock by San Francisco’s Tarantel, and the spooky sounds of Humboldt County’s Starving Weirdos played to a candle-lit portrait of Abe Lincoln.

The festival continues throughout Sunday with more free music at Echo Curio, including deep trips from Portland’s White Rainbow and Valet, drone-master Gregg Kowalsky, psych folk band Nick Castro & the Young Elders and Ajilvsga, featuring Brad Rose, one of the festival’s organizers.
