Anyone been to Mojoes in Joliet, IL ?

I'm considering making a road trip & going to see my favorite band (Sevendust) there in April. Is it a cool venue? How is parking? Anything else I should know? Anyone highly recommend or not recommend going to Mojoes? Thanks!

Sucks dick.

Shitty area (middle of nowhere).

Best place to park is in a casino parking garage, (better hope they don't see you and tow you).

Venue is tiny, sometimes shitty crowd. Shitty security. They've been known to let glass bottles be served. Two big support beams in the middle of the pit. Also they tack on shit ton of openers sometimes (I've seen a show there with 5 locals and seen ads for shows for upwards of 8 or 9 openers).

Well maybe it's opposite day, so when he is saying it is shitty, he means it is the most magical place in the world!

Its not that bad of a place like the others said. They do have two pillers in the middle of the pit which is horrible for pits. Bars are nice. Gets really hot though in there. Park at the casino. You wont get towed if you park in the main casino parking lot. They will just think you are going to the casino. Its got good sound. Two floors and 3 bars total. One might not be open which is called the red room.

I personally don't think it's as bad as everyone says. I'm not crazy about it but the pillars that prevents pits is very annoying. Sound seems to be make or break. Selling alcohol in cans is a dumb move they do. I've always parked at the casino and never had an issue. My biggest issue is when they throw on a shit ton of local bands. I don't mind supporting the local scene but 1 or 2 at most is all that's needed. Also, from where I come from, the drive sucks. A lot. If you take the tollways from where I come from you'll spend 9 bucks there and other 9 back. So I have to take main roads.
