“Great Venue”
Reviewed 13 June 2005

We saw DMB at Roseland Ballroom on May 9, 2005 and found it to be a quite comfortable, intimate venue. There isn’t a bad seat in the house. Even if you got stuck all the way in the back of the place, you’re still only about 150 feet from the stage. Some fought the crowds to get right in front of the band, but we chose to sit on the built-in sofas on the side of the room. We were lucky enough to get a spot up front, literally about 20 feet from the stage. We liked this area because before the show we had a place to sit, and when it started, we stood on the sofas and could see over the crowd. The only drawback was the acoustics, which would echo a bit off the wall behind us. There’s also a second floor balcony section, but it appeared to be for VIP’s. There were several bars and lots of bartenders. We never waited for a drink, although they were pricey. The bathrooms are downstairs by the main entrance and were clean and plentiful.
My only suggestion is to get there early. Our show started at 9:00p, doors opened at 8:00p, and when we got there at 6:45p, the line had already wrapped around the entire block. The good news was, they got us in quickly.
