HAR MAR SUPERSTAR SINGS SAM COOKE
5/13
RNR Hotel

How hes stretched his 15 minutes into 15 years is beyond me.

The RnR crowd was in kindergarten when he kicked off his Stroke jock-sniffing, ironic lounge schtick.

Eric B. and Rakim @ The Fillmore on 4/17
grr...I've been listening to them a lot lately and they are soo good.  damn I hate that venue tho
also April is a full month of concerts

I'm curious, how is it really much different than the 930 club minus the god awful acts they book on a regular basis?
honestly it's mostly the hassle getting to SS
the bad beer selection/prices and poor sight lines don't help
also depending where you are on the floor, sometimes the sound is horrible
Only place that was worse was the Echostage

I will say the staff at the doors, bars and inside the club do kinda suck
they are rarely as helpful, friendly or show any customer service

I think the IMP staph actually make a big difference

I was at 930 last night and the floor has to be about half the size of the Fillmore!!! Yada you might want to check the prescription on your eyeglasses

even taking into consideration that the 930's stage moves?  perchance was it pulled all the way forward, thus making it smaller?

good point, Anthem may have distorted hutch's sense of size and proportion... he's not used to slumming it anymore.

Twice as big...crap beer...poor design..way weaker staff...

The layout is actually fairly different with a much bigger and wider floor
I agree. The Anthem sucks.

I, for one am extremely fas,cinated with your sour stance toward the anthem.  I for one, am also equally fasci,nated with you.

I don't get the hate for the Fillmore.  I like it because I can walk there from work. Shame they never have any shows that I want to go to.

Yeah... no one here including hutch has a good argument of why it's a bad venue.

Does the location suck? Maybe
Does the parking suck? It's better than the 930 club
Does the beer suck? Indeed, but so does the 930 club
Is the staff bad? The 930 staff isn't the highly admired staff of the mid 00's, i'll tell you that.
Do the bands they book suck? Absolutely
Is it basically the same as the 930 club in all other aspects? Absolutely

Hutch, or whatever he wants to call himself, touched on this briefly above, but to me acoustics should be one of the top factors for evaluating a live music space.  I've only been to the Fillmore once and the sound was decent.  The 930 club, on the other hand, rarely disappoints in that regard.  Usually, the sound is quite stellar in fact.
