Re: Your All-Time Top 10 Favorite Albums
WOY, when's the last time you've been to the Crystal Ballroom? I've only been here since July, but all the shows I've been to, save one small show, the entire floor has been divided by two rows of baricades with bouncers in between. This is the demarcation between the drinking and non-drinking audience. It makes for an odd atmosphere to say the least.
The only thing I can think of when you refer to the "freaky drinking area" would be Lola's Room, which is a smaller venue in the bowels of building.
All in all, it's a great place to see the big acts come through town, but I personally prefer the Towne Lounge for live music.
