The El Rey is one of my favorite venues to see a band. They often host my favorite
types… up and coming musicians…. in a wonderfully intimate atmosphere. It used to be a theater and the decor represents that with two raised areas on each side and a balcony in the back. Once of the things I very much enjoy is the full bar!
I saw Nothing but Thieves there twice and it was the best performance of my life! Of course, it could be because they are just the best young band out there! And if I don’t say it enough… you should be listening to this band!!
We also saw Sir Sly play at The El Rey and that was a lot of fun. We were completely unfamiliar with the band beyond the one hit playing on the radio. And they were very good! With a bit of a heartbreaking back story they maintain a positive music vibe.
I fell in love with Mondo Cuzmo from their hit Shine on the radio and jumped at the opportunity when I found them playing at The El Rey! What I’ve downloaded from iTunes I’ve loved and I hear they have a new album coming out!
Sex God and I always check in with The El Rey to see if there are any favorites we want to see playing there. I hope you have a favorite venue also!
