    This theater has gotten a lot of shade over the last few years for building and aesthetic violations, but Skynyrd still rocked the place.

    Rock and metal is fine for the acoustics, but anything but full on amp crank is gonna sound like ass.

    See who is playing and maybe catch a show! Goldstar and stubhub usually have good deals and the show will be over in time to either hit a late night bar or grab some late night grub.

    Use the bathrooms on the second floor. The line downstairs is always ridiculous, upstairs is better and faster.

  • Digital Tour Bus

    The view from the balcony has a spectacular view of the entire theater, but the seats go fast. If you like to sit down while enjoying live music, be sure to grab a seat before they're all taken!

    Best place to see a show now that Fireside & (old) bottom lounge is gone.

    They used to have a smoking section... Not anymore. So just hide ur lighter and then smoke in the crowd. They won't kick you out if they catch you, just tell you to put it out. Best bathrooms too!
