Thanks, friends. Hutch Iím sorry you had a similar experience. Some people get off on the power trip, I guess. Sad.

Scott McMicken and the Ever Expanding. So, so, so, so so GOOD. That's five so's out if 5. Opener Arc Iris was weird and good.

And Union Stage is the best venue in DC.

Skinny Puppy was easily one the worst shows (& sound) I've ever seen.  TG I only spent $10.

one of them, not sure I'd give it 'the best' rating

The Sound has been decent when I've been there
bar/merch was accessible
beer selection is above average
sight lines are decent
I've never paid for the seats, but I would imagine it would be a good spot as it's just above the crowd and not that far back (and next to the sound board)
Pizza is pretty good (only may be an upstairs thing)

the biggest issue is the lack of quality talent.   they have enough shows to have me wanting to go a few times a year, about as many as FSS

That's some low praise based on your 5 figure show attendance, I would have to imagine you've seen some pretty bad shows over the years

I dunno, I find ad many shows I like at Union Stage as I do Black Cat, 9:30 Club, Dc9, or Anthem. I've never been to FSS.

That Big Star all-star band show last year was one of the best concerts I've ever seen. Flesheaters were great, I've seen Helmet there too and it was fun. There are some decent shows that come through, you just have to keep your eyes open.

For sure, many acts only play Live Nation when booking a US tour

Ahh I was given a free ticket.....I thought the new songs were OK.  When did he get that big?  I was surprised how full it was.

I really dislike wanding and metal detectors...

I'll bet your detachable penis really drives those things bonkers.

Is Hutch actually an invertebrate?
