One of my favorite music venues in LA. Always fun bands to see. Enough room to dance with a kinda separate area for drinks.

Now called The Satellite, it's still my favorite place for live music after all of these years. Don't believe the haters- Jennifer Tefft is doing the booking again, and that's a damn good thing. The bar selection is OK and drinks are medium priced- the real lure here is the chance to see great indie bands in a small venue before they blow up.

just mediocre – lame place to watch music.

too much money for pseudo hipness – I paid an extra amount added to the ticket web's pirate ransom to avoid a line at willcall. That was BS and they made us wait with people in line that didn't pay the fee. The bouncer tried to frighten the crowd into paying valet to avoid getting parking tickets, the bartenders didn't give a hoot about CS and measured the booze they poured with a scale, the crowd was happy to stand around stepping on each other's tows, crowding in front of each other like lemmings and the sound man was an idiot who had no idea what he was doing with a mixing board, but looked cool with his dual 12 inch powerbooks. What a joke, never waste my time here again.

I've been hearing about this place for a while and was excited to finally end up there for a show. 20 minutes later I was outside saying "I will never go back in there". The bartender was rude and unprofessional. The sad part is I work in a bar and have for ages. When I am disgusted you have to screw up pretty thoroughly. Oh and they allow smoking inside. Gross. Never again.

Great venue – I've seen many shows here and have loved every one. The closeness of the band to the audience and the sound were very good. I also really enjoy the varied artists they have. This is my favorite place in LA to see a show. It's small, and personal with the artists walking around afterwards. If you ever get an opportunity to get to a show here, you must go.

Silver Lake's premier club to catch buzz bands before they get huge. – A club with an adventurous booking policy that often features critical darlings yet to hit the big time. If you can stand the blue air, step up to the lounge, where there's a bar, pool tables, old-school video games and an amusing low-budget NASA decorating scheme. The only problem back there is when the jukebox is on during live sets--nothing like mistaking the onstage band for the next big thing, only to realize it's a muffled Velvet Underground demo. Musicians, writers, artists and others with odd haircuts meet to mingle and check out everything from experimental noise ensembles to rising alt-rock stars. It's a well-documented fact that Beck played many early shows here. Other indie heroes and buzz-worthy bands to swing by in the past couple years include Imperial Teen and the Black Keys.

my favorite live venue – i've seen so many good bands here, including a few that are arguably too popular for a venue this size...huge mugs of Red Hook...$10 cover? you can't go wrong

Budget Rockin – Forget the hack, tired strip if you're looking for new, interesting and edgy sounds. Silverlake is the place and Spaceland is the finest in the hood. With an adventerous booking policy and the oh-so-cool Free Monday "artist in residence" program, not to mention the smoking room upstairs, this is THE place in LA, east or west, to see toonage.

Rawk On!

Best L.A. hipster scene – This is one of the few clubs in Los Angeles that has good live original music on a regular basis, rather then the pay to play clubs that line Sunset and surrounding areas
