Nov 29   New review for Old Inn Tavern.
2.0 out of 5 stars  This is a nice little local tavern where folks go to talk and play free pool. They are not really interested in hearing bands, or they would likely go to…

Nov 14   New review for The Filling Station.
3.0 out of 5 stars  Nice little "locals" type of place. Pretty good food. Band has to set up in a very small space. There is no stage. Not much room for much more than…

Nov 14   The Filling Station was added to Olympic Peninsula/Bremerton/Hood Canal , Kingston.

Nov 11   New review for Flights Pub.
4.0 out of 5 stars  Big PA and friendly staff. Great lighting. They do favor multi-band shows so you end up splitting the door. They promote pretty well. Kind of a metal crowd, it seems.…

Nov 11   New review for The Anchor Pub.
3.0 out of 5 stars  Nice venue. Nice stage. Decent PA. Soundman didn't show up. Didn't let us know. Had to set up the house system ourselves. Never did get the monitors working. We brought…

Oct 28   New review for Tim's Tavern on 105th.

Oct 14   New review for South Bay BBQ.
3.0 out of 5 stars  Hi. My cover band was invited to play last year and receive 'a portion of the door'. Beware any venue offering this. I voted against it, but was outvoted by…

Oct 8   New review for The Brick Saloon.
5.0 out of 5 stars  What can I's The Brick!! Love playing there. If you are coming from the Westside, probably doesn't pay enough to even break even, but it's a great venue to…

Oct 8   New review for Swiftwater Cellars.
5.0 out of 5 stars  This is one of our favorite places to play. It's pretty much a break-even weekend, but so much fun we don't care! Play from 7-10 and if you play both…

Oct 8   New review for Rendezvous.
2.0 out of 5 stars  Room is incredibly small, maybe holds 40 people? It's basically a pay to play and they require more than one band. We were told they had house drums, so neither…
