Club Los Globos, the Silver Lake nightclub that had long catered to a Latino clientele, today resembles a two-story high, stucco oil tanker as workers slap black paint across the Sunset Boulevard building. There  has been a  lot more changes inside, where work is still underway on the main floor. Meanwhile, upstairs, workers are putting the finishing touches on a black and red  lounge that will tonight host  a dance party and show by Glass Candy of  Echo Park Records.

It’s not clear if  Echo Park Records bought the building on Sunset Boulevard at Vendome Street but it is  involved in booking the space.  The Eastsider has contacted  Echo Park Records to find out who is running the place and who decided to paint the building black.

*Update: Alexis Rivera of Echo Park Records said his firm will be booking music and managing Los Globos for Steve Edelson, who owns El Cid and other Los Angeles area nightspots. Edelson purchased the property about two months ago. “It will be a couple of months before we are up and running,” said Rivera. ” We will be fixing the place up as much as we can.”

Rivera  said the plan is host book local bands and other acts in what used to a former American Legion Hall.  Work is underway to reopen the ground floor, which had been used mostly for storage, in addition to the upstairs lounge. “We will do something that is respectful and part of  the community.”
