There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue. I don't recall the cost sadly (average for the area I think), but I will say it was very well guarded and if you do us it, remember to take your ticket with you as it is your key for elevator use! Also Parking technically begins on the 3rd level.Dirty Bourbon River Show travel • Aug 19 2014 star this tip starred
Quotes & Highlights
Hear Emily’s music at her website.
“Ms. Wells’ latest album, _The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties _(creative control), is a warm, intriguing slice of avant-garde pop, and on stage she’s a delight.”—Wall Street Journal
“On her album The Symphonies: Dreams Memories and Parties, from 2008, the multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Wells layered her elfin voice over spectral string arrangements and brushstroked hip-hop percussion. The ten songs were symphonies only in the broadest sense of the term: the album is a highly theatrical labyrinth of rap, gothic folk, classical, and electronica songs.” —_The New Yorker _
“Emily Wells is a classical phenom with a cutting ear.” —Village Voice
“Layering eerie strings, bleeping synths, and electronic beats under Biggie’s rags-to-riches lyrics, she sings and raps like a feral, streetwise Nina Simone.” —Spin
