Silver Lake, Los Angeles –
Music lovers who want to see the next big thing will want to check out The Satellite, formerly indie music staple Spaceland, an intimate live music venue where acts like Foo Fighters, Beck, and Silversun Pickups played in their early days.
A lobby papered with indie band posters and buttressed with copies of alt-weeklies and ‘zines gives testament to the roll call of artists that have passed through, and leads revelers into the main room and its low-lit bar.
Here, hipsters and music geeks gather to share their appreciation of the band over cheap PBR tallboys, while those who want to get closer to the action can stake out a place right in front of the stage where they can bob their heads to the beat as artists perform under the shimmer of the mirror ball and the blue and silver lamé draping the stage.
Patrons unimpressed by the band or in need of a break can hang out at the glass-enclosed bar in the elevated back room to play pool, lounge around on couches, or keep an eye on the show via the TV in the corner.
The party doesn’t end when the bands do, as DJs and well-known artists take over the club after the main act has finished, transforming The Satellite into an upbeat dance party.
Music lovers, approachable and sociable hipsters, indie, punk, and creative types, and occasional celebs, 21 to 35.
Live music featuring mostly indie rock, punk, and alt-country artists. Free Monday night residency program showcases a different local act every month. Pool table. Jukebox.
Cover charge $0–$20. Beer $4–$7, mixed drinks $7+. Valet parking $5.
Hipster chic: jeans, t-shirts, hoodies, and the occasional fedora for both guys and gals.
Any time a favorite band is on the schedule, or Mondays for the free residency show.
Lamill Coffee Boutique (1636 Silver Lake Boulevard) is right next door and is a solid pre-show stop for a caffeine fix.
