As a side note, I do like the new Black Cat, though. No better a space for clubbing, but a good place for small shows. Downstairs is very closed in, one might say intimate if one spoke in the third person. Upstairs is a little bigger (and needs better bartenders) but has some good tables in the back, which lets you see over the crowd (since the stage isn't that high, it all works out.)
