“Crowded but not crazy”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

We saw a trio of bands in one evening this past Friday. There are screens to help you see the artists. The security staff was very straight forward polite get the job done strictly professional. The waitstaff was around a lot. The acoustics,perfect.

“Small and intimate venue”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

I went to see Damian Marley and The Atmosphere in concert. It's mainly a standing up venue but wasn't too bad. It's more for a smaller show, wouldn't be good for a big show.

“Typical venue, good staff.”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Pretty much a typical venue for its size. The staff seemed well versed in how to handle a crowd and everything went smoothly. As far as the acoustics I can't comment as it was a metal show that I attended and those tend to be less noticeable with louder shows.

“Typical venue, but still a cool place to go”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Although the Electric Factory is very similar to hundreds of other venues, it's still a good place to see a show. If you get there early, you should have a easy time getting upfront. The acoustics might not be the best occurring to other reviews, but it sounded fine to me and I've been to over 75 concerts.

“fun but poor sound quality”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Came here to see a rock show, which you'd have expected to be loud. Had trouble hearing, the sound quality here is no good.
