This is the worst written article of all time. If I had a hammer I'd kill myself with it just because I read this.
Best All-Ages Venue St. Louis 2006 - The Pageant
off broadway until recently was 21+ strictly -- such as last year, when this blurb was written. new owner steve pohlman has been doing some all-ages shows since taking over the club last year.
I would have to completely disagree with this selection. I played a show at Off Broadway the other day, and being a minor, was pleasantly surprised at how nice the entire staff there was to minors, be it the door guy, the sound guy, or even the bartender, who was totally fine with giving my friends and I water (normally this merits a scowl). The venue was much more intimate than The Pageant, more attractive, had better acoustics (the Pageant only sounds good when it's packed) and had an overall better all ages feel to it. I don't think I've met a friendlier staff at any venue, with maybe the exception of The Focal Point, so I highly recommend Off Broadway.Also, fuck Blueberry Hill for taking the good music away from underage kids!!! I vow NEVER to play there.
