It might be a gorgeous Art Deco relic, but the 800-capacity El Rey runs a roster that's decidedly dust-free. From Fuzz to the Raveonettes, Dizzee Rascal to Autolux, the schedule is full of acts du jour, with the older but still-interesting likes of Roky Erickson and Nick Lowe also appearing. Sound and sightlines are both excellent.

The El Rey is one of the best medium-size music venues in town. Primarily booked by powerhouse promoters Goldenvoice, this is the place to see your favorite Coachella and FYF type bands in a club setting. While the photograph shows how the space looks set up with chairs, they are removed for most concert events, with all space utilized for standing room.

El Rey is one of my favorite venues in LA. The venue is not too big so it never feels too crowded and packed, which I like. The sound and atmosphere has always been excellent! Busbys and Spare Tire are also down the street so it's convenient to grab a drink first and head to the venue afterwards!
