    SOMA is pretty ass but I think in the debate of "worst San Diego venue" it's a real toss up between that and the neighboring Sports Arena. Made the mistake of going to Sports Arena once for Wrex The Halls because I wanted to see Florence & The Machine. Never again. Not even if they were paying me.

    I've seen some recent setlist and it's ten tracks from Angel Guts.Which to me personally kinda sucks because there's a bunch of other songs I want to hear but then again I became on board with Xiu Xiu a little late and super excited to see a less abrasive and full band set.

    I have only seen Nine Inch Nails and Dresden Dolls at Soma, but it was a great venue for that show. A long cement box that got very hot and very loud.

    Muse in 2006 was ridiculous. Tallguy can vouch for that one. Traffic coming down was horrible due to all the nerds going to comic con, though.

    I didn't think life could get much better than Nick Cave performing Stagger Lee, but then they closed the set with Papa Won't Leave You Henry. Jesus Christ. That's one of the best shows I've seen all year.

    I had a good experience the first time at Soma for Muse...when the bass intro to "Hysteria" caused everyone to go nuts and push forward, I ended up less than 10 people from the stage. We were pretty far away for the Black Keys in '10 though...I understood why people don't like the place much better that time.

    Rimac is the worst. It's a basketball court with bad acoustics. Soma is pretty bad too.
    Balboa Theater, SDSU Open Air Theater, and Belly Up are the best games in town.

    My first show was at Spreckles. EMF! hahaha

    Yup. The Reigning Sound also played in LA. Dunno if they were in SD, but they were spectacular, and have remained so to this day.

    I get that... but I'm honestly glad that they at least draw a line there... since they can't seem to figure out that their balcony should be ticketed separate from the floor. And really... when you're pushing 40 and have a family, it becomes more and more difficult to get to a show early enough to ensure you're one of the first entering to get access to the floor. So scoring a pit ticket always ensures I'll have as good of a time as possible in that shitty venue.

    Good call on Rimac, I forgot all about that hole.

    How can you leave The Casbah off that list?! Have you not been there?

    I love the Casbah. Been there a ton of times (FlyLo (recently) and Jagwar Ma (coming up)). Good crowds and energy and they get some really good bands to go through. My only *minor* gripe is that the sound is not as good as the other 3 venues.

    Nice. That FlyLo show was definitely the best I've ever seen him. Jagwar Ma sold out before I could get a ticket, unfortunately. I find the sound there to be pretty great, but I always post up on the side of the stage, so maybe the acoustics are different combined with the stage monitors? Or my ears are broken (totally possible).

    It is self evident that the best venue in SD is the Belly Up. All others are competing for second place.

    I really like venues that still have a box office I can order tickets from directly without paying Ticketmaster's outrageous horseshit "convenience" fees.

    The Casbah is supposed to have a box office set up soon, and they use Frontgate so the fees aren't too bad.

    My cons for the Belly Up are:
    Too bright
    Too pristine
    Too many TV screens and tables/seated areas
    Too far out of the way

    The biggest pro is the shark above the bar.

    Belly Up has pretty terrible sightlines (for half the venue) and a meh crowd every time I've been there. I'd take Casbah or Soda Bar over it any day.

    Sometimes you get band members who think they're way funnier than they actually are making jokes about the shark though. That perennial favorite "Oh my god, a shark, everyone get out of the water!"
