    Bad seating, and the chairs are plastic. If someone tall is in front of you, Beware! It is a sketchy part of town, and it is very hot. I usually don't complain, but I didn't like it.

    Rickety old chairs, sticky floor, but an awesome staff. Ticket prices are usually decent. If you can stand the ambience, a great place for a concert. Good views of the stage.
