I hate that i have to think of this dump when I think of the last time i saw type o negative.

I'm sure Maiden33 will weigh in with what a dump this place is.


Sounds like the dump should close. I've been on 2 road trips to the Reverb. Nice venue, staff is friendly, good bar. Let 'em take the shows.

I associate this venue with terrible things and I've never even been to the town before.

Well, I've only been to this place 3 times and all 3 times were ok. I mean, sure, the security are a little douchey and the sound can be muddled at times but it was an ok place. As for the overselling of the tickets, all I can say is the 3 shows I attended had no issues with this because the bands I saw weren't huge draws. I was able to walk right in and head right to the floor and get a great spot. But I had a friend who attended the Anthrax/Testament show there last year and said he was basically standing at the door staring at the back of the head of the dude in front of him for the entire show. Not cool.

Reverb is my favorite venue in this area and I hope they pick up all of the shows that would normally go to Croc Rock. It's bigger, cleaner, the security are swell guys, the drinks are cheaper, and the parking lot is huge and well lit. D.R.I. was fantastic there last Friday. I've probably been to over 2 dozen shows since this place opened less than 2 years ago. Great, great venue!

I hope Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg starts taking more shows now too.

I have been to Croc Rock about ten times or so. When I saw As I Lay Dying there it was WAYYY overpacked, thought I was going to die of heat stroke. It is a crappy little venue, but there is something fun about that at times.

Im not really surprised the venue is going downhill. The place is a complete dump. I mean it is nice that they get some decent tours coming through. But I agree with some previous comments such as them overselling. Its insane how many people they try and jam in there.
