This is the worst concert venue I have ever been to in my life, and I work in production so I see A LOT of venues. I saw a funk band there the other night (Here Come The Mummies) and they had tables and chairs out! Who the hell wants to sit down for a funk show?! Also they served food which is seriously so trashy. What band/artist wants to see people SITTING DOWN and EATING FOOD while they are trying to play their heart out for you. The answer is 0. If it was a standing show I would have had a great time. I definitely would have ordered at least 3 beers and a jack & coke, instead I ordered 0 beers because of how stupid the venue layout is and how upset I was at everyone sitting down. The show also started exactly at 730 which is really early. I’m guessing the bulk of the Birchmeres audience is old white people which explains why I had a terrible experience there and why the rest of the years lineup looks awful. Managment, consider changing some things around, otherwise in 10 years when all of your patrons are dead, your business will be too. I’m a stage manager/production engineer and I’m still salty about the show the other night, but not salty enough to help you if you need ideas.
