"Creative hipsters" like this "no-frills" "micro-venue" for its "all-over-the-map" lineup of bands, while cheap beers and "cheerful" bartenders keep the "friendly" crowd hydrated; be sure to bring cash – they don't accept plastic.

Awesome music and comedy venue with a big stage. An old-school place where cash is king (put that card away, unless you're getting money out of the ATM, kid). The hosts of the comedy show, Midway or the Highway, are fantastic. Gabe Stoddard and Angela Sawyer are professional and keep the show moving along well. Five minutes for each performer. Music, poetry, and comedy are all welcome here, though last week, only comedians showed up. In a cool neighborhood in Jamaica Plain. Try it out!

Have been here a few times for the Queeraoke on Thursday nights, which is a great queer-friendly safe space. Can get crowded, but everyone's so friendly and it's a cozy, comfortable vibe! If you want to sing, I'd recommend getting there when it starts at 10, or staying til the end because the queue does get long. Deducting one star because the drinks are watered down - as a super-lightweight, I had two beers, a LI Iced and a dark 'n stormy and still felt mostly sober.

Went there for queer karaoke, was a fun experience overall with a supporting crowd and happy atmosphere. Be aware there is a $5 cover charge and is cash only.
