    Up and coming bands, 90's bands touring again, amazing cover/tribute bands. Decent drink prices for a "venue."

    One of the best small music venues in the US. Make friends with someone who has VIP passes for special access to the VIP bar and viewing area on the second floor. Hot tub in the backstage artist area.

    Get there early for the best spot; the opening acts are nearly always decent and great for finding new music!

    No seats.. the hip-hop concerts are more like appearances, so don't expect them to be on time.

    Love the venue. But the staff are mostly dicks. They barged in on my friend while they where using a toilet.

    Great venue, security was really tight on moshing and crowd surfing. Also, drinks are pretty pricey.
