Off Broadway is hardly limited to age extremes, however — the venue's standard fare is still standout local shows with carefully selected bands, making it the south-city music scene's best gathering place. Almost every show at the venue is all ages, but it's not just a matter of letting all sorts of folks in the door — Off Broadway feels like home for every generation of music fan.
