    The layout of this theater is strange with the standing in the middle but the sound is pretty good. If you manage to get into the upstairs VIP sections don't hesitate just go.

    Security guys are pretty rude. The guy ripped my tickets right out of my hand as I was taking them out of the envelope -- and I was moving pretty fast so there was really no need for that.

    Has a terrible policy for artists to meet fans. They won't allow bands to be at their merch tables. A singer wasnt even allowed in the lobby let alone allowed to take pics or sign.

    Perpetual crowdsurfing! If you crowdsurf up to the stage, the guards are specifically trained to give you a soft cushy landing and cycle you out to the back to start the whole thing over again.

    Amid Times Square is this venue--one of the few in NYC to require an escalator for entry. Drink prices are high, as you'd expect from the 'hood, but the excellent sound more than makes up for it.
