    Is it always slower than snails to get in the door if there is a line up? Oh well Amanda Palmer was worth it.

    If you're stumbling in or out, get the burritos made inside. Also take time to admire the amazing artscape painted on the building.

    Dance cave would be a great dive bar if not for the staff. There are many much better places to enjoy a drink, no need to waste your time here.

    Used to be one of my favourite venues, until security turned me away for having a point and shoot(!) camera with me. Looks like Sound Academy's camera nazis work here too.

    Lee's is great for shows, many of the best international bands play this venue. The upstairs (Dance Cave) is to be avoided if you are over 19 years old.
