If you treat the MSG crew with respect you'll find that they will do the same,it is one of the best places to gig.If you get an invite into their crew room for Deli sandwiches ... you are made!The Tick Tock for egg & chips across the street is another bonus (36th & 8thAv)
As for the Crazy House....enough said!

Eagle's Ballroom, Milwaukee, Wisconsin is by far one of the worst venues to play. Acoustic nightmare, reverbatorium, hellishly long in and outs, and why is it always raining? Even more evil is the little room within the Eagle's... THE RAVE!

Let us not, however, overlook The Joint in Las Vegas (This may apply to monitor engineers, only). No escape path except across the small stage to SR, barely enough room on SL for a sideways desk and fatbastard engineer... Oh yeah, and one may reach out and touch the back of the subs...

Ha ha ha ha ha, You are all spoilt rotten, I've been to most of those venues and If you've ever gigged in Ireland you'll know the true meaning of shithole. ALL OF THEM. We don't do professionalism, quality and courtesy. Worst festival crews in the world. Even worse then Italy.

Have to disagree with you there sorry. Tripod is a damm good gig for a club. Festivals though, hmmm, you may well be right :-P

MSG though, been there 4 times and loved everyone
