    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]

    Small intimate venue. Concerts are loud and the place gets packed quickly.

    The Echo has the most adventurous, experimental lineup of any Eastside music venue.

    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

    This place is an incognita. I heard opera, jazz and rock in the same night. Don't go alone. Not good for flerting!

    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.

    Really reasonable drinks prices for a music venue. Can usually get a beer or cider for $5-7

    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.

    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.

    The Echo: the stage is stacked on subwoofers. So you feel it in your pants.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Great parking and good food in the surrounding neighborhoods! Once you get in the drinks at the full bar are inexpensive. The venue is small but every view is a great view! Read more

    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
