[9:14pm] Kendra: There is also the Blue Gallery space over by central. That's pretty central and the guys reasonable price wise. You can have a band, drinks and get noisy. [9:14pm] Bluestreak: Can you get us in there? [9:15pm] jokeefe: Crown is a nice space. Blue Gallery worth considering [9:15pm] Kendra: A lot of the bands I know play there and it is cheap from what I understand. [9:15pm] Bluestreak: Is this the BG you mean?
