    Love the space, it's wide enough that you can see wherever you're standing and not too deep so you're always pretty close to the stage. Large bathrooms too.

    Great sight lines, even when it's packed. I like to stand stage right by the coat check if I want to hear the music but don't really care to watch the band.

    If you have an Illinois license, bring a second form of ID with your birthdate on it. Otherwise they'll try to say it's fake and won't let you in.

    The headliner usually goes on around 10 p.m. Get there well before that for sold out shows for a good spot though.
