The Opportunity

Silverlake Lounge Los Angeles is a small, indie-rock and sometimes comedy venue, located on the world-famous Sunset Boulevard.  Our mission is to provide artist friendly terms in artist friendly environments. Surge Event delivers a variety of value for performers, venues, and industry. 

Silverlake Lounge Los Angeles boasts a top of the line sound system in an intimate setting which no doubt goes some way to explaining its allure for both audiences and up-and-coming performers.
