I think the majority of metal show-goers in the valley probably aren't too pleased with UB's becoming the premiere metal venue in the last year and a half. There's a much better venue just a couple miles down the road called The Clubhouse, and while it's not very large either, it is quite a bit bigger than UB's and laid out much better, with the bar area in the back as opposed to on the side.
As for the Master show, I wasn't there, but a turnout that small is surprising to me. Definitely unusual. I'm sorry you had to make such an epic drive to such a shit venue.
I think the worst turnout I ever saw for a show in the valley was Exodus a few years back at the Marquee Theater (capacity approx. 3,500) and there probably weren't more than 30 people there.
