Super sound system and stage lighting. Shorly all seats will be unobstructed as this is a former mill. Casual dress and byob. Coffee, tea and some pastery is available. Arive early for parking on street, behind mill and to get a good seat.

The Narrows is one of the best venues for music around. It is an intimate venue seating only a couple hundred people. The concerts are high quality and extremely varied. There is always some kind of art installment outside the concert hall.

I'll admit that I was not too familiar with this band, but they were terrific!. Narrows kind of looks like a miniature Grand Ole Opryland, and it is significantly cheaper. Some of the galleries are open before the show, too. Great night!More
