Unless you are thinking of the Echo, which is absolutely tiny and a wonderful place to see a show. Totally different than the Echoplex.
The El Rey still holds less than a thousand people though, and has great sound and great sight lines from anywhere in the room.

http://www.nme.com/news/the-rolling-stones/69986After playing the second song of the evening, 1978's 'Respectable', frontman Mick Jagger joked: "Welcome to Echo Park, a neighbourhood that's always coming up - and I'm glad you're here to welcome an up and coming band."
Jagger was on energetic form throughout the hour and a half long show, dancing and chatting with the crowd. "Thank you very much, you're too good to us," he said towards the end of the set. "The first show of the tour, probably the best one!"
A host of VIPs also attended the Echoplex gig – which served as a warm up for the band's forthcoming arena tour - including Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Owen Wilson and members of Green Day and No Doubt. The tour starts officially on May 3 at Los Angeles' Staples Center, visiting a number cities in North America before they headline Glastonbury Festival on June 29 and play London's Hype Park on July 6 and 13.
The band, who were evidently in a playful mood, took to the stage at 9.15pm (PT) and played a 14-song set, which included covers of songs made famous by Chuck Berry ('Little Queenie'), Otis Redding ('That's How Strong My Love Is') and The Temptations ('Just My Imagination') as well as their own classic material, including hits 'Miss You' and 'Street Fighting Man'.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood were backed by Darryl Jones, Chuck Leavell, Bernard Fowler, Lisa Fischer and Bobby Keys for the show. Former Stones guitarist Mick Taylor also joined the band onstage, playing on their version of Robert Johnson's 'Love In Vain' as well as 'Midnight Rambler'.
Before the band exited the stage, after a high-octane encore of 'Brown Sugar' and 'Jumpin' Jack Flash', Jagger said: "Thank you very much everybody, you've given us hope, peace, love and understanding. Goodnight!"
