ECHO PARK —Halloween is as good an excuse as it gets to buy yourself a stylish cape, no? Then keep wearing it out? If you're on board with the idea, you might want to stop by the Echo Park Independent Co-op (E.P.I.C.) for a popup featuring a collab between Howl Clothing and The Coven. Yes, there will be capes. And other limited edition trinkets, totes and fashion. Plus, music, drinks and food. Check it out this Saturday, from 6pm to 9:30pm. 1712 Sunset Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
