Description: As part of the weekend’s “Echo Park Rising: A Music, Arts and Local Business Celebration,” the Echoplex in Echo Park will host a free haunted maze on their second level. The maze is the work of local artist Albert Reyes, who has constructed an extensive haunted house in his backyard, parts of which will be reconfigured for the Echoplex event.

As a part of the PressNPlay fest happening at the Echoplex during Echo Park Rising, Deathbomb Arc is working with local artist Albert Reyes to build a haunted maze & pop up store. Located in the well air-conditioned lower level of the Echo (aka the Echoplex) this maze will also be your first chance to see a trailer for the documentary Deathbomb Arc is making about Albert Reyes.

Albert Reyes is an artist living in El Sereno, CA. In his backyard he has made a giant haunted house/maze inspired by burned out buildings. Occasionally he will build smaller mazes in gallery settings, but it is his ever changing backyard maze that really impressed me, leading to the creation of a film about it. The maze Albert is making at the Echoplex will be constructed out of materials stripped from his backyard haunted house. It will also contain a pop up store inside where you can buy works by Albert and vinyl selections from the Deathbomb catalogue. We will also be looping the trailer to the documentary.

The event is free, well air-conditioned and runs from noon till 7pm. We hope to see you there!!!

This pop-up store, maze, and trailer presented with the kind help of Sync Space, Angie Meng, Origami Vinyl, and tik///tik.

Date: Saturday, August 25, 2012, from noon to 7pm
