How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
My wife and I showed up at House of Blues at 8:00PM for the Beatles vs Stones tribute band concert. There was a huge line with around 8 security people standing around. We overheard they were not letting people in until 9:00PM, even though the ticket said 8:00PM. What they were doing was trying to artificially make the HOB look like a hot venue by keeping people outside until the later time. We decided to go get a drink at the Uva Bar (great little bar by the way). We returned just after 9:00PM. There was a smaller line and they were letting people in. I was then frisked by one of the many guards. Stupid considering the crowd. Anyway, we got in only to find that if was way too crowded to even get a look at the stage. We had a drink on the patio the show on a TV. The image was terrible by the way. Also there was no speakers on the patio, so you couldn't even hear the band. The ticket was only $5 and it still wasn't worth it.
