Wrongly Convicted
Damien Echols was one of the West Mem- phis Three, a trio of teenagers who were convicted in 1994 of murdering three young boys in Arkansas in 1993. The case attracted a lot of media attention, with many follow- ers, including Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, decrying the judicial process, and the West Memphis Three eventually were freed from prison, if not fully exonerated. Echols and his friends appeared to have been convicted based more on their lifestyle as fans of heavy metal than on hard evidence that defini- tively proved their guilt. “Magick saved my life,” Echols writes in his new book, High Magick. “Magick was the only thing in prison that gave my life purpose and kept me sane.” He discusses the book with The Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines. The Regent Theater, 448 S. Main St., downtown; Thu., Nov. 15, 8 p.m.; $32. (323) 934-2944, ticket conversation-los-angeles/. —FAlling JAmes
