Just swung by & stepped into Bernie's. Bernie's = the worst idea for a metal venue ever. Bad ideas only make me want to be there more.

It's in a basement and tiny. Very tiny. The "stage" is less than a foot high. The ceilings are low and not crowd surfing friendly (unless you want to scrape your face off). It's split into the restaurant area and the bar area. The bar area probably holds 70-75 people, tops.

I'm hoping like hell I can get in .

That must have been the joint my cousin's friends had told him about. It sounds like they weren't exaggerating. Your description is spot on with what he told me.

I've also heard that the Circus is just as small, if not smaller. Wondering if you'll have a chance to check that out - I really want to see Trap Them there.

I didn't check it out (I would've if ya' told me earlier ), but my cousin reports it's about 1.5 times the size of Bernie's, has some booth seating, windows in the front, a higher ceiling (11-12'), and the stage is in a corner and is probably 1 to 1.5 feet tall.

The good news is that some venues (Skully's & Circus and Bernie's & Newport) are close in relation to each other, so if you absolutely can't get into the smaller venue (Circus and Bernie's), at least you can shift over to the bigger one. It's not perfect, but you're going to get in somewhere, at least.

Oh yeah, and the two sets of venues (as previously stated) are definitely far enough away from one another that you're going to miss something every time you make the hike.

I don't... well actually I do, but the bus schedule says it's only running every half hour, and I can walk the distance in less time than that
