This is one of those venue's where there isn't a bad seat in the house. The lobbies do, however, get overcrowded and tough to navigate as it is a smaller venue.
Saw Gillian Welsh at the Pabst, and the great juxtaposition of her wonderful American people's music with the glorious old-world ornateness of the Pabst was really something.
