The sounds quality at Rock City is incredible, such an amazing gig. But just a warning if you do attend, you might get a tad hot, the amount of bodies means you'll be sweaty.

We haven't been to Rock City for many years - since the late 1980's and I remember it being a very dark, sticky floored place with awful toilets. We were pleasantly surprised. The basement is an amazing close up stage with a bar and lots...More
