The Echo + Echoplex
Rock Out, Funk it Up, Get Punked, and Dance Your Face Off at the Echo and Echoplex
When it comes to music venue space in Los Angeles, there isn't anywhere more sacred to rock and punk fans than the Echo. Located in the now-hipster neighborhood of Echo Park, the concert venue has hosted plenty of legends, including Beck, the Rolling Stones, Green Day, and LCD Soundsystem. It's sister venue, the Echoplex, located just below the Echo, has an equally impressive roster, with Nine Inch Nails and Thom Yorke having performed in the past. Plus, the sister clubs have been the launchpad for the careers of Foster the People, the Airborne Toxic Event, and War Paint, to name a few. Despite being a place to catch performances by heavyweights in the rock sphere and see famous bands before they hit it big, the Echo and Echoplex are intimate spaces that let you get close to the stage and all the heart-pounding, drumstick-spinning, sweat-dripping action.
