It appears that The Echo, Echo Park's neighborhood live music/film screening/wine tasting/BBQ/book signing venue, is looking to expand. The club, which is associated with another Eastside institution—Spaceland—is planning to add enough space for 700 more people. This expansion, much like the controversy over other building projects around the city, has met it's fair share of opposition, so The Echo is looking for supporters to sign a petition in favor of the plan.
And if you don't support it, there isn't much recourse for you. We suppose not signing the petition will have to do.
