Everyone from Rilo Kiley and the White Stripes to the New York Dolls and Gossip has played at this indie-rock bastion, which for many years was known as Spaceland but is now called the Satellite. The Silver Lake bar has had several distinct incarnations, evolving from the longtime gay hangout Dreams into Pan, the live-music club that morphed into Spaceland in the mid-1990s. Although its narrow stage has hosted many notable national and international performers, including Dead Moon, Of Montreal, the Buzzcocks, Death Cab for Cutie, Pavement, Supergrass, the Detroit Cobras and Love With Arthur Lee, the venue is synonymous with the Silver Lake music scene, launching such crucial local indie icons as Beck, Local Natives, Possum Dixon, Silversun Pickups and Elliott Smith. The club has booked everyone from the Melvins and Foster the People to Le Butcherettes and Booker T. Jones. The Satellite has a full bar, and there's a separate bar (with a pool table) that's walled off from the rest of the club with see-through plastic like the Cone of Silence. Monday nights are generally no cover. Most shows begin at 9 p.m. Ages 21 & older. The bar has a small adjoining lot with valet parking, and street parking is also available, but read the posted signs, as some neighboring streets have zealously enforced permit-parking restrictions.
