The Catalyst was a good all-ages venue and the bands, White Reaper and Twin Peaks, tore the roof off the joint! I'd definitely see them both again.

Liked: Three great bands!
Disliked: No, everything was great! And I didn't get a parking ticket, which I've never avoided before!

It was my first time there and I loved it. Stage was easy to view from anywhere in the building. Music sounds just right and there are always positive people around. The stage lights were awesome too. You can choose to stand or sit as well. They serve drinks and really good pizza. If you wanted to buy any merchandise of the band you see, they would have things to give out. I would recommend seeing concerts at the Catalyst. It's a good price and it's worth it.

Liked: Security and environment.

Great venue - bar upstairs, and pizza out front. What's not to love about this place? We saw The Slackers - their sound was amazing. It got a little hot in there, nothing to get worked up over. It was awesome. I will definitely return for more shows!

Liked: Awesome place. Loved it!
Disliked: Nothing negative about it.

Online said buy tickets at door for $30 - saw this on Tuesday. At the door, tickets had been, and I quote "sold out for weeks". Super annoying should definitely say online when tickets are sold out!

Disliked: Horrible.

This was my first time at this venue and it was awesome! Saw Tribal Seeds and we were able to see the band perfectly from the balcony. It was crowded at the bar but I never had to wait long for a drink. Extremely long lines for the ladies room, but that's everywhere! Overall, love it and would go again.

Liked: Easy purchase online and smooth checking in.
Disliked: Needs more stalls for the ladies.

For having 2 shows on one night, the bouncers and ticket checkers at the door had no line organization. We found ourselves, with tickets, standing out in the rain in apparently the wrong line. No one told us which way to go. Once we got inside the doors it was madness. They were waving people in all directions, no lines whatsoever at that point, and different entrances blocked off to different people. When we finally got to the room where our show was located, the bar had been roped off to keep the babies out, and there was almost no room to stand to drink our cocktails. That being said, once the show started they tore down the ropes and it was much less claustrophobic.

Liked: Bartender was heavy handed, so drinks were awesome; cheap tickets.
Disliked: Shows were 16 and over; no organization of ticket purchases or lines to get into two different shows on same night; bar area roped off because of the age group.

Excellent concert schedule; I would rank Future Islands is among my favorite shows of all-time (and I am 60 and have probably enjoyed a 1000+ shows). Thanks.

Liked: Nice arrangement inside with balconies and plenty of floor space; easy bar and bathroom access; good sound.
Disliked: A handful of obnoxious fans; could probably use a little higher profile for security and maybe a few passes around the balcony during the show.
