Culturally preserved in formaldehyde, downtown club "The Smell" won't be affected by gentrification, assures a columnist in this week's Daily Trojan. "With much of Downtown remaining in its post-apocalyptic disarray and Echo Park/Silver Lake maintaining its hipsterdom, the Smell’s authenticity appears to be safe for the time being. Although a lot can change in 31 years — as the owner of [NJ's] Birch Hill eventually realized — the young venue’s “yeah, whatever” attitude cuts through the current L.A. music scene as fierce as the alley’s ambiguous stench."
