The Bijou is one of the many historic buildings located along Knoxville's legendary Gay Street. The Bijou is a movie theater that has been converted to a concert venue. I was thoroughly impressed with the beautiful interior decor that hearkens back to a long-ago era of movie theaters. More impressive were the incredible acoustics in the facility. I normally wear earplugs at concerts (even bluegrass shows), but the sound was so well-adjusted that it sounded more like sitting in a living room listening to a show on a great stereo system than the overpowering sound that too many facilities tend to use, even for acoustic shows.
If you get the opportunity to see a show at the Bijou do not pass it up. If you're in Knoxville and there's no show scheduled, see if you can just go inside to see the incredible facility. It's as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the ears.
