The Echoplex is physically connected to its upstairs neighbor, the Echo, but it's so much larger and into its own thing that it has a separate back-alley entrance and a different street address. Reggae, hip-hop, funk, LGBT and other dance nights trade off with live concerts. Regular events include L.A.'s best reggae night, Dub Club, which often features legendary names straight out of Jamaica. The large stage, full sound system and dark lighting make the Echoplex an appropriate venue for big concerts, as well as spoken-word slams, beer and wine tastings, and even rollerskating. Musicians who've performed at the Echoplex include Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, Heartless Bastards, Wire, Au Revoir Simone, Big Youth, Holly Beth Vincent, T.S.O.L., Puro Instinct, Ximena Sarinana, Dntel, the Sadies and the Adolescents. The Rolling Stones played a surprise show at at the Echoplex to start their 2013 North American tour. Full bar plus a smoking patio. Age limit varies. Street parking, with more parking available in a nearby metered public lot.
