“Impressice good sound”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

I must say I'm impressed by the good sound I experienced on a gig with The Safety Fire, Periphery and Between the buried and Me. Pretty complex music, but they managed it perfectly. Not often I bother to make a comment about something like this. (This was a Lille Vega)

“Nice Cafe full of civilized drinkers.”
Reviewed January 16, 2011

Went to see a reggae festival here. Vega was expensive (like all of Kobenhavn), but the show was good and the crowd was freindly. The venue had a good sound system and was a huge hall. I would go see another concert their.
