went the other night to see Blackberry Smoke. It was obviously overbooked for an inside event. It was shoulder to shoulder and there was no way to even shove your way to the bathrooms. The Pony's sound system leaves alot to be desired as well....More

If you have the opportunity to see a concert here, jump at the chance. It is a great venue, you can get close and personal with the band and the acoustics are pretty good.
