There are two venues in Birmingham that are as cozy as all get-out for viewing concerts.  We saw BB King at one of them and could literally reach out and touch the stage.

The stages are mid-sized, with a recessed dance/viewing floors out front.  Then there are two levels of U-shaped balconies with tables and seating and most have excellent views of the stage.  Mixed drinks are sold at a large bar near the entrance... the rear of the concert halls.  Strange, but both of these venues are within the same city block.

At this concert a couple of weeks ago, we saw George Thorogood and the Destroyers.  We were seated at a table on a second floor wrap-around balcony.  Good seats, eh?

I took this pic of B.B. King from our front-row standing spot... at the rail.  You just don't get this cozy at most concert halls like a civic center... and Pensacola's Vinyl has a poor layout compared to these places.  (Of course, they don't allow professional cameras, so these are cell-phone pics.)

Nice. Love a good venue... The Pantages Theatre in Hollywood is pretty sweet (it is fully restored and gorgeous), as is the Santa Barbara County Bowl (all rock work amphitheatre... also beautiful). Did Bob go with you all to see George Thorogood? I know he also saw them recently.
