Here’s the thing, my rock show recommendation record has been pretty dismal this week, so I’m not going to talk about any rock shows or anything. No. I’m gonna talk about a rock show venue. Have you guys been to the newly opened EXPLX underneath the Echo yet?
Seriously. I think it might be the best venue on the “East side.” It’s HUGE. It’s got ample seating away from the stage, ample room by the stage, two bars, a friendly staff and it is HUGE and awesome. I rolled in there for the first time last night to see the Besnard Lakes and was, quite literally, awestruck. Not by the band, but by the venue! I wanna go to shows here ALL THE TIME now. It makes going to shows so much easier when the venue is easy to get to, easy to park at and as nice as this one is. In the abortion that was my recommendation to see a show that wasn’t actually happening I mentioned the EXPLX and RPS 5 going down this weekend (it is actually happening! I swear!). I’m only more angry that I’ll be out of town now, the venue is out of hand. Has anyone else been there? Does anyone dare disagree? I will bite you.
