This converted small neighborhood movie house is a great spot for getting up close and personal with favorite entertainers best suited to smaller venues. It's almost like a living room concert. The only drawback I've found is that this intimacy leads some audience members, especially after a couple of drinks, to imagine that they are free to conduct a running conversation with the musicians throughout the show. Our first experience here was a Suzy Boggus concert, and the sound was perfect. I was less enthused with the sound for J. D. Souther, but he admitted that he had skipped sound check. Every seat is a good one, either on the floor or in the small wrap-around balcony. They also sell standing room, which is also not bad, but not comfortable, either. Given my previous comment about tipsy patrons, perhaps I shouldn't complain it can be hard to get a drink at the lobby bar.
The Kessler is just a short hop down Davis Street from the Bishop Arts District, making it tempting to make it a dinner-and-show evening.
