Graffiti celebrating the venue's "eVocalism" ethos.

After three years, westside Costa Mesa all-ages art gallery/clothing store/live music venue eVocal said goodbye on 7/4 with an all-day "Freedom Fest" showcasing local visual artists and featuring a variety of Orange County and Long Beach musical acts including Love Your Mother, Sweet Sweet Things, Parade of Lights, the New Limb, the Steelwells, Will Crum and more. Owner Brett Walker has vowed that eVocal will continue to exist as an entity, but this was the venue's second-to-last show; before July 10's gig with Yellow Red Sparks, Barrett Johnson, Billy Kernkamp and Railroad to Alaska.
