Looks like Im missing Sun O)))))) again.
How's Club Nokia? Interested in seeing Flylo but I'm used to seeing him at smaller venues. I wonder if he'll do the Infinity thing with the band again.
It's fairly awful, but if you can get their early and get into the pit, it's good. They do first come/first serve for pit wristbands, about 400 people. Otherwise the ceilings are really low and the line of sight sucks. Sound is good pretty much throughout the venue though. Also the most ridiculously expensive drinks i have ever seen.
Constellation Room is the main part of the venue. The one that holds about the same as the el rey.
Its decieving. Yes more people can fit at club nokia, but you arent going to be far away if you are in the back. Get a balcony ticket if sound matters to you.
Yeah, it actually feels quite small inside. Even though it's way more than double the size capacity wise, it feels smaller than the Echoplex when you're in it.
If it's a hot show those are gonna sell fast too. but yes, sometimes it is an option.
Sidenote on shows at the Observatory since they are booking good names and people actually want to go there..
parking is free on the observatory lot, and there is also a front lot that isn't advertised always that you are allowed to park in for free (directly in line with the marquee at the main entrance off Harbor.) They have signs that advertise $10 parking which is in an industrial lot near the Observatory, but usually you shouldn't have to mess with that so don't be tricked!
They sell tickets at the door usually with no door fee, and they allow you to pay Credit/Debit for tickets at the door as well. They give you an actual hard ticket as well for door ticket purchases which is pretty cool.
Anyone wanna know why they are getting such good bands? The same guy who owned/booked Detroit Bar, bought The Observatory and is doing the same thing. Its working it looks like.
