    Any night is a good night. Beers $5-$9. Not bad. You can order pizza from the venue. First timers please don't block the walkway/bar to the patio. A lot of indie bands and upcoming artists. [chvrches]

    If you're into funk, soul and fancy footwork, then Funky Sole's on Saturday is for you. The music is hard not to dance to and you'll find yourself grooving out on a floor packed with breakers. Read more

    Women's restroom is behind the merch table while the men's restroom is on the opposite side of the stage. Be prepped before pushing your way through the crowd.

    They don't tell you beforehand that you can't bring your backpack and then they tell you to fuck off if you try to get back inside even though you already paid for your ticket. Full of assholes.

    Not the most glamorous, but the divey vibes & iconic status give a kind of cbgb feel to an LA venue. Order Two Boots at the bar, & catch Monday night residencies to see bands on the verge of success

    Going here means you’ve gotta venture out into the artists’ Echo Park enclave. Plenty of great out-of-town bands blow through here on a regular basis, but don’t expect top-list clientele.
