I would not recommend attendin...

I would not recommend attending the Echoplex/Echo. The security there are inhumane and like to use people as punching bags for their own enjoyment. I witnessed my sister being beat up by multiple security guards all at once as she laid in fetal position on New Years Eve. She was kicked and stomped in the head, kicked in her stomach, legs, arms, and back. She was battered and beat up terribly and suffered multiple injuries. This was a horrific attack to view. The security at the Echoplex/Echo do not protect they target. Multiple bystanders pleaded with security to stop, but they continued with their inhumane brutality. Friends and I pleaded with them to stop, but they shoved and pushed us out as they continued to beat on her. I DO NOT recommend attending any event there. Anyone that attends is fair game to be attacked by security.

Eh.

Weird crowd, but at least there's no pressure to gussy up, right? As long as you don't go more than once every few months, you won't get too tired of the awkward-hipster crowd and endless replays of The Smiths and Blur. Cheap, too. Bring a warm coat so you can sit outside and smoke with your friends all night.

Cold, cavernous and unpleasant

Being one of the very few venues of this size in LA (not too big, not too small) The Echoplex puts on some great shows.



Sadly, this is the only compliment I can think to give it.



The sound is almost always terrible because of the weird shape of the venue (low ceiling, long and narrow). Unless you have just the right number of people in there, the sound bounces around giving every band a muddy quality. Incidentally, the sound is always best in the bathrooms. Really.



Then, there's the air conditioning. If the place is not full (which it rarely is) it is freezing in there. They pump up the air conditioning for a sold-out crowd, no matter how many people actually fit. I was wearing a scarf, sweater and hood last time I was there, and even then I couldn't get warm (despite the fact that it was quite warm outside).



Finally, it is just grungy and not well maintained, even though it's pretty new and they don't make bands go on on time, so you're always sitting around waiting waiting waiting (I guess that means they sell more drinks).



Sadly, most small venues in LA are in a similar state, so if you like live music, you just have to learn to put up with it, or stay home.

Oh yes

Came here a couple of weeks ago to see the AppleSeed Cast. My friend who LIVES HERE IN ECHO PARK, apparently found out this place is under the Echo, as in you have to cross the street from The Echo and go down some stairs to the street below which is also under a bridge to get to The EchoPlex, which is a bit bigger than the Echo.

This place is hipster central, full of awkward couples and friends mumbling things like ""no I've been wanting to check out this place forever yet I live only a block away"" and forms of tourettes that include random shouting of words like ""Pabst!! Ironic!! Plaid!! Indie!! Skinny Jeans!! Urban Outfitters!!"".

The space is huge here! HUGE! Seating in the form of ottoman arrangements sporadically placed besides beams. The sound is good here! What a venue for s/m/l performances hidden in a these parts!

The bar is nice and long so you don't have to be herded into 2 square feet of counter space. They have many options and appropriately priced drinks. You can also order, through the tenders, some munchies from Two Boots Pizza and they will run it down those sketchy stairs from their shoppe on the street above! Nothing like a veggie pizza and pabst or a drink like a White Russian, which seems like it would fit oh so perfectly into this venue!

Cool place dudes

Get Your Hipster On

There's nothing better than a live show and catching a band at the Echoplex is loads of fun.

Just below Sunset and through an alley off Glendale, the Echoplex may seem like a small place at first but go further and you discover lots of seating, a large dance floor and two bars. There's also an outside patio.

I like almost everything about it except the drinks which are in small plastic cups. And the parking. If you don't get there early enough, you have to park on Sunset and walk down the scary smelly stairs to access the Echoplex.
