  • The Viper Room

    Los Angeles
    Bar / Live Music Venue
    The Viper Room - Bar | Live Music Venue in Los Angeles.
    Apr 2, 2013 A Living Monument to the Slow Death of Rock "My Take: The Viper Room is a rock venue that mostly showcases emerging indie, metal, and rock bands. The stage is small and the room is intimate so it’s perfect for checking out a smaller group. For bigger bands, the space can start to feel really claustrophobic, really fast. The Scene: This rock venue brings out diehard rock fans, metalheads, and a spattering of Eastside indie kids that have somehow made it west of Vermont. The headlining bands tend to be smaller and bring out their own crowds that leave as soon as whatever band they came for is done. Cocktails & Cuisine: Standard beers, shots, and mixed drinks with heavy pours and not much else going for them. Supposedly they have wine too, so if you really want to be the kind of person that sips a glass of bad cab while staring down your nose at the headbangers drowning their Scandinavian sorrow in guitar solos (aka a big, steaming d-bag), go wild. Prices: Shows typically cost about $10 a night with some headliners costing from $20 to around $30. What to Wear: Girls look like they all pair dresses, skirts, and tops from Nasty Gal with boots or studded flats. Guys typically wear skinnies, studs, and concert shirts they stole from their dads. Essentially, if it’s leather, spiked, studded, and looks like it came from Hot Topic, it’s probably part of the uniform at The Viper Room. Insider Info/When to Go: Weekends have the best bands and most energetic crowds. If you come to see a smaller band during the week and they don’t bring out their own following, it can make for a pretty sad show, especially with some of the strange lineups The Viper puts together. Nothing’s more pathetic than a band having to play in front of a room of five after a headliner just left with the majority of the crowd." hide

  • UCB Theatre (Upright Citizens Brigade)

    Los Angeles
    Comedy Club
    UCB Theatre (Upright Citizens Brigade) - Comedy Club in Los Angeles.
    Mar 29, 2013 Improv & Local Heroes "My Take: I went to a weekday Harold Show so I can’t speak to some of the bigger performances, but the UCB is a small comedy venue with great shows every single day of the week. Waiting in long lines is just part of the deal, even if you have reservations, but the improv teams make the wait well worth it. The Scene: The weekday crowd is mostly full of USB students, comedy fans, and bored hipsternistas with permanent stank-face wondering what the hell’s so funny. The Harold Show brings out a rowdier crowd, ready to shout out cues for the improv teams to tackle. UCB features everyone from stand up icons to local rising stars like Ally Beardsley and Drew DiFonzo Marks. Cocktails & Cuisine: Get your food and drinks at the Bourgeois Pig, Birds, or La Poubelle before or after the show. Prices: Weekday shows start at around $5 and there isn’t any watered-down two drink minimum. What to Wear: The crowd comes out in everything from sweats and flip-flops to blazers and heels. Insider Info/When to Go: Weekend shows are almost impossible to get into unless you know a performer or have made reservations in advance. Early weekday shows feature great performers with less of a line and more of a chance that you’ll actually get in to see a performance." hide

  • El Cid

    Los Angeles
    Club / Historic Bar / Lounge / Spanish Restaurant
    El Cid - Club | Historic Bar | Lounge | Spanish Restaurant in Los Angeles.
    Mar 28, 2013 Flamenco & Folk Rock "My Take: I haven’t yet been to the much buzzed about flamenco show, but El Cid is a great music venue for smaller bands. With plenty of places to sneak away to along with a great heated patio and balcony, El Cid makes for a great date spot or quieter night out with friends. The Scene: Varies depending on the lineup. The crowd came for whatever band they happened to know and mostly left right after. Performers at El Cid include mainly folk artists and bands like The Far Country and Jake Salley and the Prospectors. Cocktails & Cuisine: El Cid’s two bars are well stocked and feature a wide range of beers along with a good wine list and sangria. Cocktails tend to enjoy a heavy pour and I could barely make out anything other than cognac in my Hennessey Ginger. Prices: Shows typically cost about $10 a night but each band has a pretty extensive discount list and can usually get you $5 tickets if you RSVP early enough. What to Wear: Be comfortable but the crowd tends to be a little dressier. I spotted everything from hipster bears in flannel and boots to celebrity siblings in miniskirts and stilettos. Insider Info/When to Go: If you’re looking for a little privacy, head for the tiny staircase right behind the soundbooth. Go up it and you’ll find a balcony with three tables and plush booths. Also, this place has got to hold a record for the tiniest men’s room in Silver Lake. Seriously, it’s designed for three people and has a square footage of about 5 feet, makes you feel like you’re in an interactive art installation. But that’s probably just the cognac talking." hide
