Not going until October. I really want to go see Ween on Saturday, but the Rush concert is that same day.

Ween?! At HOB?!



Oh, fuck, I'm there. Are tickets still available?

I missed a chance to see them at Stubb's in Austin, so this will have to do.

When are they playing? I'm sure its sold out but its worth a try...

And if you sit (on the shelf only) I don't think you will like it much. I walked up there before the show and it is really steep and the seats are really close. I would stick to the floor and stand up. Food is in the back and it looked pretty good.

With only 16 seats per row and 3 sections, it seems to me that the seats would be spread out a little bit more. I'll have to get a preview and possibly look into selling my balcony tickets and picking up floor seats.

I just went to their website and the virtual tour doesn't even show up there. From what I remember it just wasn't for me (but then again, I am a pit kind of guy). Either way I hope you have fun.

Not sure of the time, but tomorrow night.

I hope they have chairs I can sit or I will not be a happy concert goer. I've heard good things about the food. I'll be sure to test that out!

you can't eat and watch a show.
the front is the resteraunt. there's a tiny stage there like in any small resteraunt bar.

in the back upstairs is a small room with a stage and a bar. this is where small acts play, like up to 300 people maybe.

the main concert hall is in the back. enter on the left side of the building.
there's no food in there. just bars. the floor level is all standing room.
the upper level has seats or you can stand.

All that 'schlager at the bar
Flakes of gold swim in my brain
I ate the worm the night before
And tonight I'll probably do it again

Shotgun Becks down at the Shore
I've got a friend at the liquor store
Deaner likes his red wine dry
So booze me up and get me high

Booze me up and get me high!
Why don't you give it a try?
Let the bottle do the work
To ease my mind and soothe the hurt

Me and George finish the Jack
After drinkin' down my last six pack
I'm not feelin' bad myself
'Cause there's another bottle on the shelf

Cribber likes his Guinness in cans
And Andrew, he's a tequila man
But it don't take much to get me high
So booze me up and get me high

Booze me up and get me high!
Why don't you give it a try?
Let the bottle do the work
To ease my mind and soothe the hurt

I saw the Deftones there when it opened and it is by far the best place in DFW to see a concert! Sound was awesome, had like 3rd or 4th row seats on balcony and I was very pleased!

So since you've been on the balcony, how are the seats? Small? Cramped?

I went and saw 3eb last night there. Great concert venue. Its small enough so you can still see in the back and it not smoky.

3eb put on a great show...one of the better concerts I have been to. They are supposed to make a DVD from it.
