“Closed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This was a good venue for a variety of local and national talent. Unfortunately, they seem to have recently closed for good. Word is that House of Blues made more attractive deals with talent, they they bypassed 4th & B. I recently saw Little River Band there. Now it's closed.

“Best. Small. Venue.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This place is the only place to go if you want to be UP CLOSE and feel the full force of your favorite act. It's rugged, it's probably dirty, you'll leave with stains on your clothes and need new shoes, but it's AWESOME.

“A DUMP TO SEE "HAS BEEN" BANDS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The floors are soaked in beer. The crowd is young and wild. The sound is loud and the stage is good. If you must see that old famous band, that just didn't know when to quit go to 4th and B.

“Great Venue!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Went to see Adam Ant on September 15th. This is a great venue. We picked up our tickets early and enjoyed downtown. The sound quality was super and just about every place has a good view of the stage. There are bars located everywhere, so getting drinks was no problem at all. Also, the security guards were super cool and had a sense of humor. The ladies bathroom was clean, thank you very much. I read some poor reviews of this venue but I think it has more to do with the promoter than the location. The venue itself wouldn't be responsible for poor sound quality or sleazy customers. We spent the extra ten bucks and had seats and a table in the balcony which was nice. I would definitely come back here for a concert.

“Bad acoustics, old dusty house”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

You can sit in some seats in this concert venue and literally not be able to understand the performer even when they're just talking. It's old and dusty. Has some real sketchy performers. Don't go.
