Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This sprawling dive, formerly known as Spaceland, celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2015, and it remains the leading L.A. shrine to all things indie. The parking is a combat sport, but the venue has good sound and an upstairs lounge with a less-crowded bar and a photo booth (that actually works, on good nights!). The Monday night program, which features free monthly residencies for buzzy local bands on their way up, is always worth a look.
