Seen PumpJack very good sound and their performance out of this word
Great place, alot of fun
Love this place!!!
Good venue. Ask about comedy night, well worth the visit.
I like it very much. The only thing than bothers me is the inside is too bright. It should have been a little bit darker. And they need at least more bartender.
Great place for live shows and always a friendly staff
Smoking allowed in facility. Bartender on shift not terribly skilled. Only Sprite and Coke available as fountain sodas.
Loved the music played. Salsa night wasn't just salsa night-bachata, merengue, salsa, and reggaeton!
Went to an armature comedy open mic night. Fun time. Staff was great
I like Backstage live because they have allot of originality and underground Lubbock talent coming through those doors. Whether it be rap, rock or some up and coming comedians. Always a gem or two. I saw Smooth and Booga Bradshaw both rock the stage. The drinks are good as well, decent diversity as far as the crowd goes as well!!
I went in and they marked my hands since I am 20. Everything was fine until I went to the patio to get some air and when I came back inside the "bouncer" asked me where the marks on my hands were. I had already gone to the bathroom twice so they were faint and I said I can in a group. He kept insisting I pay 10 more dollars on top of my already 10$ cover fee. At this point I was trying to argue I came in with a group and was informing him that I had washed my hands and that was why the marks were so faint. At this point I had to call my friends who were already at the bar and tell them we had to go because I wasn't allowed back in without paying money. When we all came up to the bouncer he kept saying he didn't remember us but he kept just trying to get more money, at this point we left because I didn't want to pay more and my friends left without paying any more for our drinks. The bouncer was very rude and condescending. This was a terrible experience and I will not go unless it's free.
Beer wasn't as cold as I prefer. During a show a light above the bar "exploded" and fell onto the bar. Exposed live wire was hanging from the ceiling. Bartender turned lights in that area off and was quick to clean up broken glass and serve fresh drinks. Bathroom needs updating. Okay little place to check out bands. Staff was kind and helpful.
I love salsa nights here! Its always so much fun. Great bartenders! Tip them! :)
