Fuck Royale and their absurdly early shows.

Have yet to go to The Sinclair.

Not complaining at all about Middle East. For me: 89 bus to Davis Square, red line to Central Square and a brisk 3 mile walk back home.

Haven't been to Sinclair yet either, but I've always liked the Middle East. it can fit a decent amount of people,. but still has an intimate feel. Been to 2 shows at Royale, both good shows but something about Royale i'm just not a fan of. Plus Cambridge is way easier than downtown Boston.

I've seen some great shows at the Middle East but parking sucks there and it can be hot and nasty down there, esp when sold out. Like detuned said it can be unenjoyable when filled and you can't see much from the back.
Every show I've seen at the Royale/Roxy has been nice and easy involving everything about it.

Could always be worse. Could've been the Palladium.

I'm grateful every time a metal tour comes here and avoids the Palladium. I have no big problem with any of the Boston venues willing to host metal, including Royale.

I agree that the Middle East is miserable when sold out, but I'm always annoyed by sold out crowds anyway (great for the bands & promoter, bad for individual audience members).

Middle East is just as much of a dump as The Palladium, which is probably why they are my two favorite venues to go to I didn't like the Royale at first, but after going to few shows there I really dig it. Haven't been to The Sinclair yet either, though I've heard good things from a few of my friends that have been there.

True, but I'd rather a dump 3 miles away that costs me nothing to get to/from rather than a dump 48 miles away that I have to spend at least 15 bucks in gas & 5 bucks in tolls to get to/from.

Main reason I dislike the Palladium is because I have to take the train out there/back after shows, and getting to Boston at 2 am with no bike/car/ride is an absolute pain in the ass. Plus, shows in the area I can actually go to on weekdays! Also, November is going to be an amazing month for shows.
