How was your experience?
We were looking forward to this concert for a few weeks so finding tickets on Goldstar was a real plus. We had tickets for the main floor which were okay but we realized that after a song or two, how much better the sound was up in the balcony. (We were just at this venue last week for Earth, Wind and Fire and sat in the balcony.) Since we could see there was balcony seating, we headed up. We ended up standing for most of Blondie (we didn't see the opening act because we arrived late) which was fine with us. We usually end up standing at these kind of concerts anyway and so do a lot of other people it seems. This particular venue is one we've been to quite a lot so we know what to expect. Acoustics are good and the staff are usually cool with everybody. They have bars set up both downstairs and upstairs and restrooms on both floors as well. One tip--negotiating the stairs in the balcony can get tricky in the dark. I'm speaking from experience, unfortunately. Don't ask. As for parking, we got lucky this time. Somebody was just pulling out of a spot. We won't park in the lot. Too expensive and it takes forever to get out of the lot after a show. Better to park down the hill and hike up, take a cab up or take the cablecar. Anyway, we had a great night once again thanks, in part, to Goldstar.
