Venue

After reading the thread about the venue that Pavo liked that closed down, I decided to make a thread about your favourite venue. Also this is my first thread in this section i think.

I'll start.
My favourite that i've been to is Barrowlands in Glasgow. It holds 1900 people and has a spring loaded floor. It's a great size and a lot of great bands have played there. Recently there have been a lot of shit bands playing there too
My Chemical Romance, The Zutons etc.
Bands i have seen there include Disturbed, Nevermore, In Flames, Sepultura.
It's a great venue for it's size, shape and ofcourse the crowd are right on the stage. It's so close to the stage for it's size. And ofcourse the stage is a reasonable size too!

Probably Newport Music Hall in Columbus or Bogart's in Cincinnati. Similar venues, just small places with decent acoustics that book a lot of metal.

House of Blues... any of 'em. Yes, they are expensive, but I find that it's well worth the cost. It's a a great venue, and usually the staff is very nice. Plus we ALWAYS manage to be the first in line thanks to their pass-the-line program. We just get there and eat lunch usually - plus they're about the only place you're going to get that close to the size of acts that usually play there (like Queensryche.)

Although the sound sucks down front, but who cares!?

well as bouncy as you're going to get, better for jumping than anywhere else anyway, and it doesn't hurt as much when you fall either which is always great!

They should make a venue out of one of those inflatable bouncy funhouses. The mosh pit would be so much fun!
