    Be smart -- grab a parking spot before a bite to eat. You'll find many decent places within walking distance (Buzz Mill!) and have no tow worries later.

    Awful venue, terrible staff, crappy sound, disgusting restrooms... I'd rather drive an extra 100 miles for a show then go to Emos, it's that bad.

    Parking gets tight so don't be surprised if you're parked several blocks up the hill. Don't park in neighboring lots, they will tow.

    Somehow retains a sense of the intimacy of the old Emos in a much larger venue. Good luck finding parking.

    Led Zeppelin 2 killed it tonight! One of the best concerts of my entire life, even Robert Plant front stage at Bonnaroo!

    This place is too big and too clean. I don't even smell like beer. New Emos is thumbs down

    Lots of space and such a great venue, but high ticket prices, high alcohol prices, and they wouldn't let me bring in my camera :( #broke

    Whatever you do, don't wear a Nirvana t shirt to a Courtney Love concert! My partner and I wore, Hole and Nirvana to be cute/respectful for lack of better words and she called me out. Good venue still

    Don't park in the lot across the street, even if it's late and all the shops are closed. A dozen of us got towed after the MSI show! $190 to get the van back!

    Great venue that actually has some of their own parking. Acoustics are pretty good as well. Walgreens across the street has 10 ear plugs for $6 ;)
