Also I Like to Rock: The Duke Spirit & Io Echo

Thursday Jul 17, 2008 8:00 PM This is a past program

The Duke Spirit’s elfin-faced singer has room-shaking lungs and possessed-by-the-devil dance moves. This musically powerful full-on rock band from London, England is understated and gimmick free. 

Io Echo describes its music as “full of rage but with good manners.” This LA band recently toured internationally with She Wants. Front woman Io has been described as “a true rockstar who in time could take her place next to Siouxsie, Joey Ramone, and Patti Smith.” 

Also I Like to Rock

Rock returns to the Hammer courtyard this July for a series of free concerts hand-picked by local independent radio powerhouse Indie 103.1. Each night features back-to-back sets by some of the best breakthrough bands. Galleries open until 9pm. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, and Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
