    BAAAAAAD NAME! Can you see some hard rock or grunge band actually agreeing to play at the 'Boutique Amphitheater'? The name itself may drive away tallent.

    Terrible name. Boutique? Will it have puppet shows on Saturday nights?

    Do we have any hope at all of seeing some LOCAL bands play here, on a weekly basis at least? (I nominate Gerald Duncan and the ACCELERATORS for house band!) ;)
