LA Weekly's Best of LA 2010 pick - Part Time Punks= Best Punky Time!
Fun fact: Airborne Toxic Event played 10 of their first 12 shows here. They literally had to beg for the slot after Spaceland said no. What do you think the booking agent would say now?
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.
One of the best venues in LA.
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
Great intimate indie venue, with free residency shows to boot!
Stage lighting here sucks.
Head out to The Echo on Friday nights for a good show followed by some sweet tunes and drunken dancing at Club Underground. Definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a Friday night.
Arrive late, drink jack and eat at two boots pizza, the vegan is awesome
One of my favorite places to see a show in LA. Every view is a good view and if you get bored of the crowds take your beer out back and chat up a stranger or stare at your feet. Bring cigarettes.
Valient Thorr is playing an early all-ages show here on the 16th!
Funky sole is $5 now. #LAME
Dum Dum Girls have left the building.
Get your groove on at Funky Sole nights (every Saturday unless there's a band playing) - it's FREE!
Watch out when you walk in that you don't fall and break a hipster!
Wear your dancing shoes and get ready to party when Walk the Moon opens for Kaiser Chiefs here on March 19, 2012!
Bring cash for Two Boots pizza afterwards :)
Part Time Punks & Depeche Mode night = fun!
Plenty of places to sit. Small venue, so it's very intimate, making it easy to see the artist up close without having to wait in line all day.
Grand ole echo on Sunday afternoon/evening. Blue grass. Cheap beer. Patio. The good life
The Echo: the stage is stacked on subwoofers. So you feel it in your pants.
Sock Puppet Sitcom Theatre. This month, Roseanne. Next month, The Golden Girls!
Dance, dance, dance!
Great soul music on Saturday nights!
Dope, intimate venue to catch a show
Best venue in Southern California.
This place is an incognita. I heard opera, jazz and rock in the same night. Don't go alone. Not good for flerting!
Cool place way too expensive
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.
Nice venue for music
Really reasonable drinks prices for a music venue. Can usually get a beer or cider for $5-7
Better than the EchoPlex down the corner. Room to move & you can see who you're sweating with. $5/$10 bucks cover. On the cheap.
Awesome layout! Bar seating in the back with a slightly raised platform so you can still see the show. Dance floor on the right. Patio entrance at the back left. And cool staff to boot.
Funky Sole. Friendly, happy, positive people. A great experience. Place was packed! Great to see young folks digging music made like 20 years before they were born. Drinks were steep ($$) though.
Rock and roll; you'll enjoy both together but not apart from one another.
You're definitely not too uncool enough.
Very small intimate club.
Is now the best venue in LA. Other spots have gotten too pricey or fallen off. Bootie parties, part time punks, funky sole, check yo ponytail and new and old underground, indie favorites
Great place to see Septic Death
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.
No backpacks allowed.
Check out heavy punk band Mr. Dream here on March 2, 2012!
