Photos: A first look at Union Transfer prior to opening night
Earlier today, we attended Union Transfer‘s media tour of the new venue prior this evening’s opening-night show with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. After a quick meet-and-greet, we were led through the main entrance to the concert room, the backstage area, the stage, the balcony, and the restaurant/bar area. All in all, the venue looks amazing, with great sightlines from every angle, and several parts of the original Spaghetti Warehouse still intact (such as the chandeliers in the main concert room). However, according to the owners and staff who were present, the visual aesthetic (impressive as it is) takes a back seat to the sound system, which we’re looking forward to hearing for the first time at tonight’s show.
