black cat a la LA »

3.0 Stars

if you've ever been to the black cat in DC, this place is similar. best place for shows in echo park, but not the best on the east side. i wish i could have more love for echoplex, but the short stage, big beams, and generally awkward space. but i stand behind all things that aren;t totally whack in echo park. so i stand behind you, echoplex. even though i waited in line for 4 hours next to the dumpster for mia tix and no one ever got one. legit smokers patio. backstage less than impressive.

you don't HAVE to stand »

You know how in those fancy restaurants there's someone in the bathroom sitting there to hand you a fluffy towel to dry your hands with and to make sure the counter is dry? Well, the Echoplex has one of those, too, only she pulls paper towels from the dispenser and expects a tip. She ruins my trip to the Echoplex every time. When I'm here for a rock show, what the hell do I need some lady handing me paper towels for? Dang!

Paper towel lady aside, the Echoplex is decent. The DJ is awkwardly placed in the center, in the ideal standing-spot for those of us who aren't into being jumped all over (I haaaaaate when they let the kids in), which is mildly irritating but I guess I can get over it. I'd guess being in that location serves some kind of logistical purpose that I'm unaware of.

The most convenient thing about the Echoplex is that it has two bars and some cocktail servers who take your order from outside, so you don't even have to stand in line (if you're lucky). There are also a lot of places to sit, if you're into that kind of thing.

Sometimes they have those hipster dance parties but hipsters are too cool to dance, so the outside area gets pretty crowded with people pretending they're taking a rest/smoke-break from those slick moves. Don't ask me what I was doing there.
