This month's poll question dealt in generalities. When the house music falls silent, the lights dim and the band takes the stage, where would you rather find yourself: Draped in bar-sign neon? Shoulder to sweat-soaked shoulder in a pit of fellow fans? Glutei nestled in plush seating? That was your conundrum, and here's what you had to say:
3 (10%) - Hot, sweaty, cramped bar or makeshift venue
14 (48%) - Bar room with a stage
4 (13%) - Mid-sized general admission floor
2 (6%) - Outdoor venue
6 (20%) - Seated, mid-sized civic center or performance hall
0 (0%) - Arena or stadium
It was a runaway win for the bar with stage, which tells me you're all fans of quasi-intimate shows, or just a bunch of drunks. Either way, it took home almost half of all votes. A distant second place finish for the mid-sized GA floor, which isn't too different from the bar/stage option; the only difference is the bar is usually a bit less easy to access in the former than the latter. I'm proud of you all for skunking the arena/stadium option.
Thanks as always to those who contributed; look for a new poll in the upcoming days.
