There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue.

The sound needed to be adjusted for Sister Sparrow. Could not hear the vocals over the instruments. They were a great group, it just upset me that I could not make out what was being sung. I preferred the opening act, Jelly Bread. They were fantastic and the sound was good. I'd go see them any day. The drummer blew me away. He's a great drummer and vocalist.
