Dreams in Spaceland may sound like the title of a cheesy B-movie, but it's actually the new name for a cool live-music club in Silver Lake. Dreams in Spaceland, so called because the nightclub's original name is Dreams, manages to be hip, friendly and casual--no small feat. The roomy layout and unpretentious vibe make Spaceland an ideal location to see alternative acts, which are currently booked about five nights a week.

According to article after article, all the really hip people are turning into couch potatoes, proudly staying home at night to watch videos instead of hitting the hot spots. Let me assure you that it was not an attempt at trendiness that kept me at home this week. I was supposed to be at Sugar Shack. That's the new Caribbean place on Pico Boulevard that seems to be the latest restaurant discovery. Everybody kept asking if I'd been there yet, but somehow I kept finding excuses not to go.

Moments into Stars' lush album "Heart," you think the sap starts to ooze. Each member of the Montreal quartet issues an introduction: "I am Evan, this is my heart; I am Amy, this is my heart," and so on. Cute ... or not. By the end, "Heart" is neither precious nor overwrought, the band's collection of sweets having folded the myth of love into songs that use melody as subterfuge and beauty as camouflage.

Perhaps because Silver Lake rates as a low-key locale on the hipster club spectrum, Pan--a new Thursday night club at Dreamz--is a comfortably inviting scene. With its truck-stop interior and drab decor, Pan is a great example of how a venue can spring to life with a bit of ingenuity and some good music.
