Monday Morning Rock

Dear Palladium Loft,

Thanks so much for having me at your place on Friday night. I enjoyed the VHS or Beta and Roxy Cottontail show quite a bit, and I appreciate the fact that it was free. And you know what? I didn't even hate your venue as much as I thought I would. True, the no smoking thing is really lame, but with easy access to the large balcony, it's really not that big of a problem. And yes, the place does feel a bit more like a Carnival Cruise ship than an "edgy" downtown loft, but all things considered, I suppose it's not bad. In fact, I'll happily attend a concert there again. The only bit of advice I'd like to offer is to either retrain your current security staff or go out and get a new one. I didn't experience a lot of hostility personally, but I did witness a couple of the security guards being unnecessarily aggressive assholes several times throughout the evening in various situations. Now, I realize that you're just starting out, and there are certainly going to be a few bumps in the road. But if you could just go ahead and let the security staff know that they don't have to take a violent tone when they're telling people that the bar is closed or that they can't walk down a certain hallway, it would go a long way towards making people want to come back again. In fact, if they could tone down their attitude a little bit all together, I think it would help convince people that Palladium is a decent place to see a show. Thanks very much.

I saw Battles in Houston last night. If you're familiar with the album, you'll be blown away, but for newcomers, it may be a little hard to follow. Either way, they're a really entertaining band (the drummer in particular).

i wholeheartedly agree with this post. i just ASKED the security guard where to park for the palladium and he got ultra-snooty. "there IS no event at the palladium. but there's one at the loft."

yeah, i know dude, thanks.

Also to the Palladium,

Why did you have to put two $50 holds on my debit card that I used at the bar? One of them is gone now, thanks, but in its place are two drink charges where there should only be one. So, Palladium, you still owe me $71! Why do you have to make it so difficult? Also, why do you have to make me wear the wrist band with my name on it? Its creepy.

That song is awesome and the glass cube looks rad, but those dudes are kind of annoying to watch. Hey, Vampire Weekend called, they'd like their gay sweaters back. They're on loan from the Refused. Oh, and bro, put some shoes one. We don't need to see how loose a dude you are.
