The Echo

Music-lovers flock to this often-jammed club for all flavors of indie, dub reggae and electronica. The temperature can rise to uncomfortable levels when it's crowded, although the back patio offers sweet relief. This may be the Eastside, but you'll be paying Hollywood prices for the drinks. On the plus side, you can get Two Boots pizza next door.

Although the sound system needs some major work & the drinks should be a lot cheaper, the echo is amongst the best places in town to see a great show. Their lineup of local and touring bands is usually pretty impressive and it's not hard to see a talented group here for just a low price. The size of the venue isn't too big by any means, so most gigs have lots of energy and feel pretty intimate. Be sure to check out their Monday residencies as well - they usually feature up & coming local bands that are honing their skills before they make a splash in the scene. If you're up for it, grab a drink at El Prado or a slice at Two Boots before or after the show.

The Echo is my favorite place to go to shows alone. They always showcase the best up and coming local bands. It's situated in the best post on Sunset Blvd, right beside Two Boots for that late night pizza or Xoia across the street for some pre-show pho.


With an old sign out front for a long gone restaurant, the Echo is in the heart of Echo Park with an entrance that belies the excellent acoustics and great shows that occur within.  Come by for Monday residencies with up and coming acts--free shows that are so good that at a recent one, someone in the audience shouted, "How is this free?!" between sets.  Whether it's a new local act or a big name, all shows feel intimate in the small space, and it's easy to get a good view.  Watch out for new permit parking in the side streets around the venue.
