I recently saw JJ Grey and Mofro at the Varsity in Baton Rouge and will see the Randy Rogers band there this coming Sat. I forget how much I love watching music in a small venue.
You can really relate to the musician. I saw Sara Bareilles at the House of Blues Houston a few months ago. Loved her so much. You could see her personality shine thru. I felt like I was watching one of my best friends perform and not a professional.
Maybe that is why I love Better Than Ezra so much. I’ve always watched them in a small venue. They can easily joke with the crowd, change up a song or set list to fit the crowds mood. I guess I’m saying small venues make me happy and I wish I could see all of my favorites in one.
Do you have a favorite band you’ve seen in a small venue?
