    Every Saturday is "Dance Yrself Clean" at Satellite. The music selection is all over the place but in a good way: one moment you might hear Daft Punk and the next Chromeo and Nine Inch Nails. Read more

    The venue is synonymous with the Silver Lake music scene, launching such crucial local indie icons as Beck, Silversun Pickups and Elliott Smith. Monday nights are usually no cover. Plus a pool table! Read more

    You can't start lining up for shows until 5pm. That's also the same time they open their lot for valet parking.

    Crashlanding on the Inland Empire in a month or two. A member of my band with me. Hip Hop based Genre bender, looking to get in on this grimy SoCal scene I hear so many wondrous things about.

    Backstage is cramped, so most band members either chill in the back of the club at the merchandise tables or in front of the building. If your favorite band plays here, you might get to meet them! Read more
