I am extremely disappointed. I live in Morris Cove and I went to see Ani Difranco at CSMH by myself in the fall and had a very nice experience, so I bought tickets for the Atmosphere Wherever tour for my 50th birthday. Brought my 28 YO son and his gf, and my 26 YO son. At some point, my older son went to purchase drinks. He walked past someone who bumped shoulders with him and the person told him to excuse himself. He felt as though the bump was mutually unintended and so he said, "You could also say 'excuse me,'" and at that point (before Atmosphere ever went on stage) my son and his gf were told to leave the venue. Rather than raise a fuss, we all left the show without challenging the incident. But I am absolutely furious. This was my 50th birthday and I had chosen to spend it at College Street Music Hall with my sons seeing musical performers whom we'd all enjoyed as a family since they were tweens. Apparently, the person who bumped into my son works at the venue and accused my son of "laying hands on him." I would like to see security footage of my son laying hands on anyone-- because that is not how I raised him and that is not how I know him to be. I do want College Street Music Hall to know that because the man who works for you chose to escalate the incident rather than move on, you all ruined my 50th birthday. I have survived cancer 5 times in the past 4 years, so this was a very special, important birthday for me to celebrate. I hope that ruining my chance to see Atmosphere with my kids on my 50th birthday was worth it to the employee of College Street Music Hall and I hope that the rest of the tour is great-- really sorry I didn't get to see Atmosphere-- the ladies rocked out hardcore as the warm-up acts.

Great look and feel as far as old style and layout, but sound is bad and clearly past its prime as a concert venue given other options and ticket prices. Great staff and impressive beer selections fwiw!

Security fought with me about my ID being fake. I’m out of state and 23. Management ended up coming out and said, “he’s my best guy, if he says it’s fake it’s fake”. They refused to have a police officer scan it, and I missed half the concert and wasn’t able to drink during the second half when i finally got in. Too much Ego to admit they made a mistake, should have had a police officer scan the ID.

Came down from Maine to see a show and the security checking IDs told me they were going to have to take my real ID because they were certain it was fake. They didn’t allow me to show any other forms of ID and said that I would have to go get a police officer and bring him in, but there were none outside. Eventually some sort of management came outside, but they ended up telling me that their security was way better at determining the validity of an ID than a police officer would be. At this point it was my understanding that they weren’t going to even let me in, however the manager finally did give me the option to keep my ID and just go enjoy the show without a bar bracelet so that’s what I did because I didn’t want it to ruin the night for me. Later on during the show my girlfriend had gone up to the bar to get herself a beer and me a water. When she handed me the water that same manager came out of nowhere and just took the water out of my hands and smelled it before giving it back to me. I will not be returning to this venue even though I did enjoy the Lake Street Dive performance. I recommend that any out of staters should bring their passport or something with them or just hope a police officer is on site.

The old Palace Theatre has become a great venue for seeing live music in the New Haven area. I’d say it is on par with the Cap in Port Chester NY as far as size and quality. Have seen many acts here since it opened, and have always enjoyed it. This recent photo is Dave Mason from the front balcony
