THE WORD ON THE STREET
The place is, in my opinion, a dump, but the acoustics were great, and the band, The Strangs, were amazing.
Awesome place to see live concerts! Great sound man and a wonderful bar staff!
I wish more touring bands knew about the outpost. It's off the beaten path, not inside Akron or Cleveland, but it's a big room, one that can legitimately facilitate 2 stages if need be, the staff is super cool and drink prices are way more reasonable than any akron/Cleveland clubs of its size. So like I said, it's a bit out of the way, and also, data reception on phones is next to impossible, but it's a good place to see a show.
