I'm not able to see The Echo in Los Angeles in the event creation venue drop-down. It's not a new venue, I've been creating events for The Echo for a decade before beta. Would love to see this fixed.

Just guessing: is it simply called "Echo" perhaps?

Hi No Nrg,

The venue is under the name "Echoplex", but indeed it should display "The Echo" as an option. I pass it to the data team. Thanks for reporting.

Hi No Nrg,

Do you have any examples of event pages where the venue is named "The Echo"?

Those are just some examples, there are hundreds of events listed under The Echo.

The Echo and Echoplex are 2 completely separate venues operated by the same group, with 2 completely separate calendars. You cannot even access one venue from inside the other, as they are physically completely separate.

Before the new lastfm we were able to add events for each venue, however since the change it seems The Echo is no longer selectable. I'm really surprised since these 2 venues are quite popular in LA. I have seen many lastfm events now listed at the Echoplex with a note that says (this is actually at The Echo), so its starting to become confusing unless the issue is fixed soon.

Hi No Nrg,
I just had a heads-up from the data team that are working on solving the problem. I reckon it should be live on the website in a couple of weeks or so. Thank you for your patience.

Hello, 

You can now find the venue by entering the venue name plus part of the address (street name or street number).

Thank you for your patience.
