In that latticework of brick buildings and fortresses protected by barbed-wire fences lies a new music venue that won’t be a secret for long. It’s called, simply, 1720, after its address, 1720 E. 16th St. And if you know the neighborhood, you know this is the part of the Warehouse District so far untouched by the encroachment of coffeehouses, galleries and boutiques.
“The pre-gentrified war zone of the Warehouse District,” says one of the owners, Brett Powell. “We wear that on our sleeves.”
The space, in a former garment factory, is the brainchild of principals Alex Alereza, Powell and Travis Richter. L.A.’s premier party-throwers, the Brownies and Lemonade crew, christened the venue late last year, and now 1720’s calendar is quickly filling up with a variety of genres from the underground to the mainstream.
