The MUSE is a horrible venue. There is little to no ventilation and the room is tiny. There is only room for about 50 people, but they try to cram about 200 in there when the big bands play. People are allowed to smoke inside so the entire room is foggy and will choke anyone that isn't used to the smoke. When you leave there you smell terrible and your eyes burn. Someone really needs to install some fans or something along those lines to get some air flow going. Sound quality is pretty poor as well due to the small compact concrete walls. In addition, the MUSE will book any band, and I do mean ANY band. Most of the bands that book there are just getting started and need a little bit more practice. Once in a while you have the chance to catch a fairly good band, but you have to weigh the rest of the factors against it.
