Had two new music venue experiences in the last few weeks.
1st: Dead and Co. at the L.A. Forum (Inglewood). Great show and a great venue. Same place the Lakers played in during the Showtime days. Highly recommend going if you get the chance. Was told it looked pretty much the same as it did back then.
2nd: Yeah Yeah Yeahs at the Armory. Last time I was inside that building was when my dad and I parked for Gopher games in the dome. Really impressed with what they did with the place. Top notch music venue. They were able to make a very corporate style place much less bothersome than the Fillmore did. It helped I was lucky enough to get VIP seats/section but it still looked it had great views of the stage from almost everywhere.
The Armory is probably my favorite venue to see a show. Capacity allows for a much more comfortable experience than First Avenue. Bars surrounding the entire floor so there's basically no wait for service. Getting up into the VIP balcony levels is even better. Got dirt cheap upgrades for Coheed & Cambria last summer which was very cool.
