    Small venue, so there aren't any bad seats. Bathrooms are downstairs, refreshments & alcoholic drinks are upstairs. Sound system was great!

    Kinda beautiful inside and out. And I love that there are so many ladies bathroom stalls and bars. Sound system can be better though.

    If you find yourself in a long line for beer, just go up a level. Most events have multiple bars open.

    Great music venue, avoid parking here and ride Metro to the Expo line Jefferson/USC station.

    Security takes forever to get in but they are swell people. Venue has seats but they let you rage in the aisles. Sound system needs more bass.

    This fabled landmark is known for playing host to glittering awards shows, but it's gone down in history as the venue where Michael Jackson's hair caught on fire in 1984.
