    The place to catch familiar & arriving bands. Offers an intimate feel - it's not uncommon for bands to walk through the crowd or hang out with fans after shows. Tickets generally about $20. All ages.

    I tried for 3 months to reserve a booth for a show here with bar manager named Tom. He will never call you back and when he does it's always late at night. I sent emails too and nothing. Good luck!

    Be prepared for a climb because the concert hall is on the third floor! Also, if you don't like to stand before the concert starts, there are a limited number of booths, so grab one fast!

    FYI Tim Mahoney not playing tonight. Bass player is sick. He wanted to come solo but they wanted the whole band.
