Strange little gig this one. Wide but not at all deep, downstairs is no problem really but upstairs is covered by a house system comprising 2 clusters of turbo boxes. Although the coverage is ok the worst thing is how much of the downstairs system you hear and how it sounds up there.
The key to this place, like so many, is how you combine and match the up and the down.
Mix position is a pain; right in one corner at the back, so access in and out during the show is impossible. Access is also a problem for upstairs for which you need an electronic key from the house.

Just use the
