I don't really read this message board, nor did I read many responses, but was interested based on this heading.
Sacramento is one of the worst cities I have ever been to for touring bands to pass through.
People in Sac might disagree, but EVERY band I have met on the road will say so.
That being said, at least there is an alternative to the shitty clubs, as bad as you might think it is.
I'm sure whatever band or show you're talking about had a way better time at the Hub than ....
wherever else you're thinking of.
