Nice remodel on a comfy old space. Great PA and sound in the room, but _you_ pay the sound guy; $75 last time we played there. Communication with booking guy not the greatest either. Keep 100% of the door, but supply your own door person. Bring your own crowd because there does not seem to be a built-in crowd for the show room.
Nice big room looking for an identity. Decent-sized stage with poorly situated PA speakers and no house soundperson. Bring your own crowd if you can; the regulars don't seem to be there for the music, but are smoking out on the back patio. OK food; friendly, if spotty, table service, and sometimes long wait at the bar. On a positive note, you do get some partiers who like to jump up and dance... Also, they pay the rare (smallish) guarantee.
Restaurant/bistro that has live music upstairs as an afterthought. Small stage and very difficult PA situation. No house soundperson, and the board is at the back of the house! Nice food and drinks but staff can be unfriendly and borderline unprofessional. Bring your own crowd; the regulars are all downstairs with the DJ...
Watch your wallet! Rough clientele prone to brawling and stealing the tip jar. Small stage and minimal PA. As much as I like the Kenton neighborhood, we will not be playing the World Famous Kenton Club again any time soon...
Relaxed atmosphere in a smallish room. Money is not good; very hard to get a show there.
Recommended with some caveats: Great place to hear local music, but not very welcoming to new bands. Sound is a little quirky, but stage is comfortable and customers will get up and dance. Staff a little stand-offish, but pay is OK.
Dan, the booking guy, is great, but this place has problems. Venue relies entirely on bands to bring customers, but won't let you charge a cover for the early show. They also won't let you charge a cover to customers who say they are going into the back bar (where they can see and hear the music just fine, thank you). They charge $70 to use the whole PA, with sound man, or you are on your own with the upgraded-but-still-inadequate bare bones PA. Venue does not promote the bands, the bands promote the venue. Hospitality is minimal - a beer and a slice or salad. This is the poster child for the bad business model in clubs these days. Venue is shifting risk and cost away from itself and onto the bands and shifting money and benefits away from the bands and back to itself. On a positive note, the staff is nice and if you have a big following you can have a decent show here. Overall, bands beware...
Neighborhood dive with a small stage and bad PA. Staff seems nice, but hospitality is at a minimum. Cramped stage and the PA is set up all crazy; no house soundperson. Money is about what you'd expect (not much). On a positive note, customers will get up and dance once they've had enough drinks.
Bowling alley lounge turned into neighborhood dive bar. Kind of run-down and not very clean. Still a fun-enough place to play with decent capacity; not much money though. PA is janky and barely adequate.
