After what was only meant to be a week-long hiatus, LAist is officially returning to it's customary events posts. For those who missed our events coverage, we apologize, but the delay could not be helped, as we were waiting for SBC to figure out why our phone, and then our DSL, would not work. Three weeks later, we're back in action.

So, for those who did not get tickets to this weekend's sold out Lebowski Fest, read on for this weekend's highlights.

The Echo has not one, but two excellent shows lined up for tonight. The early show begins at 7 PM and features Ida and The Reputation. Tickets are $10. The second show begins at 9:30 PM with the two-man racket of Death From Above 1979 and Controller! Controller! Tickets are also $10. (The first show is all ages, the second is 18+)
