I've painfully witnesses a number of bands not hit Columbus and play at the Grog Shop instead. So, when the chance came up to go for a band that I already wanted to see, I jumped at the opportunity (no thanks to Google Maps whose directions were totally confusing).
The space is fantastic. The size is between Wex's black box and Columbus' Newport. The atmosphere has a layered and slightly aged feeling to it, and you can walk right up to the stage. Although a little more sterile than Columbus' beloved Stache's (think more like Little Brothers), the space is terrific to see the next cool band.
