Re: “Music Farm

Not the greatest place to go if you are into actually listening to music. The highs (treble) bounce all over the cavernous box, and I'm pretty sure the MO is to crank up the volume to an ear splitting level because the monkeys at the bar are yelling drink orders and clanking beer bottles. I've seen artists ask the crowd to quiet down (e.g. JJ Grey, Amos Lee), and it just didn't happen. I also noticed that they haven't come back. The vibe in there is "college party", with the music appreciators crammed in the snake pit in front of the stage.

Overall, the layout isn't conducive to having a place to post up, have space, and enjoy the music...if you creep to the back for space you're forced to observe the party-goers and their noise. Best place in town for actual "dialed in" music levels is the Pour House (except the Music Halls of course, but you're sitting down then)...the PH shows don't start until 11, so you better be a night owl.
