    Hello everyone.

    My three-piece just played a show in Columbus, Ohio this weekend. The guitarist/vocalist and I live about four feet from Akron (and the Drummer lives out on the far side of Egypt).

    The show was a lot of fun, and everyone seemed to enjoy our set (and my girlfriend's "I'm ****ing the bassist" t-shirt). The band that invited us out expressed an interest in playing with us more often, and suggested maybe bouncing back-and-forth between Columbus and Akron.

    One problem: I don't know of many places in my own hometown to play. Bummer. We have quite a few biker-bars, but we don't play the kind of music they're looking for (kinda like... Chevelle + Deftones).

    I don't really mind the journey to Cbus too much, it's just expensive.

    So, Is there anyone on TB who knows some Akron area venues we could rock-out?

    Thanks, everyone.

    C.B.R.'s. It was a nice place.

    I kind of figured I would get this response. It's reasonable.

    Actually, I am pretty young, but I should be old enough to know my way around the local scene. I'm 23, but I don't drink, and I don't "club". That's just not me. Unfortunately, it kind of hinders my local stage knowlege.

    I know the scene here is pretty weak. Most of the people I know in bands play in Cleveland, sometimes in Kent, sometimes in Columbus, etc. I was just reeeeally hoping that I was simply missing an awesome place or three. Closest to decent I've played in Akron was the Daily Double, but there was a problem there, too.

    Jeez, novels. Sorry.

    It's in the "Brewery District". Right across from some brewery with a miniature Eifel (sp?) Tower ("miniature" meaning like 25' tall), and behind -but sharing the building with- some techno club that gets raided by the cops on a regular basis (from what a regular player at C.B.R.'s told me).

    Oh yeah. Breweries + St. Patty's Day weekend + a really fun set = a very happy, energetic crowd. It was a blast.

    What is "your circuit," sedan dad?
