What is the difference between the Upstairs Room and the Main Room?
If the event is listed as being in the Upstairs room, this means the event is in our smaller room making it a more intimate experience.
If the event is listed as being in the Main room, this means that the event will be held on the big stage and more people.
Is there assigned seating?
No, our building is a General Admission facility which means first come first serve. Down in the Main room it is generally all standing. However, there are a few crescent shaped booths but again, its first come first serve. If ticket sales allow, we do open the balcony for Main room shows. Up in the balcony there is plenty of seating. Our Upstairs room is standing room only.
Occasionally, our building is rented out by an outside promoter and they may decide to split the building into sections, charging more for the more desirable locations. If this is the case, the different ticket prices will be clearly listed on our event listings.
My child is under the age of 18, may they come to the show?
Yes, we are traditionally an All Ages concert venue unless it is otherwise clearly noted on our event listing. Please keep in mind that young children must have ear protection. The loud music can be very damaging to their hearing.
I have my tickets at Will Call, what does this mean?
This does not mean that someone named Will, will call you about your tickets. Will Call means your tickets have been paid for and the tickets will be held at the Box Office for pick-up on the night of the event.
