Great metal dive. Good bar, decent food, good mosh pit. The specific complaint I have heard from bands have been bad acoustics. Anyone who can set up a sound board for that venue has to be top notch (Amon Amarth's sound tech is one). Since

First of all let me just say that the music at Station 4 is almost always incredible. It seems like they always have a different local band playing their own good version of hard rock or metal, but there's always the occasional cover band

Let me start by saying, I've been to this bar many of times, through many incarnations and names! So it has always not been bad.

I recently held a benefit concert at Station 4 and it went well! I was impressed with the accommodations that they were willing to donate for the charitable event. I've also been to concerts of all types of local live music there. It's always been a good time. The venue itself is smaller and like an old bar, but it does the job. They have good equipment for musicians and have live music performing almost every night,

This place is a dump, smells like you walked in to a deep fryer, and the woman who owns the place is unbelievably rude. She also works as the bartender....so good luck getting a drink. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS PLACE AGAIN!!!!

We performed here a while back and I must say this is a good sized venue. The stage was a great size, sound was great, lighting was so-so. The bar area, and the crowd area are really big, so if you're playing for 10 friends, you're

Pros: Sound is just awesome, size is huge, non-smoking (well, could be a con for some people)

Cons: Parking is a little hard to come by, bathroom was scary

I used to hang out here a lot, about 2 owners ago and it was ok. It just got worse as new owner 1 and/or 2 took over. It's now 'Station 4' which means they painted the columns. Make sure you shake hands with Jon while you're there.

You can sense the beginnings of the new scene happening at the 4th St. Station. Some of the friendliest bartenders in the cities and the atmosphere is all about the music with some sports on the side. True music lovers will get a taste of
