There was a concert for a newer band called LANY that had an opening band called Ultraviolet. The venue, Mr. Smalls Theater, was interesting and fairly easy to get to. It is located a few blocks of the road that the Millville exit on route 28 takes you to. It had very high sloped wooden ceiling because the building use to be a church. The stage was where the minister would stand to perform their sermons. Where the pews would of been for the church goers was now standing room for the fans. In the back of the standing room was a bar counter to quickly get drinks. There was an actual bar with food and drinks on the second floor behind the balcony seating. There was an outside area on the other side of the upstairs bar for smokers that had a interesting view. The balcony was set up to hold a small part in each section. It was broken up into four different sections. There were tables with bar stools and a counter with chairs. There were doors hanging on the walls around the standing room, between the tall stained glass windows, to create the right resonance in the room.
I went to the connect with my mother. We got there right before the opening band was about to go on stage. So, we went to go buy a pair of drinks and found a place to stand for Ultraviolet. Both, my mother and I, really enjoyed them. The majority of their songs had a techno beat with a heavier bass than what was expected, but there was an occasional song that was slow. They played around ten to fifteen songs and three of them were brand new and never heard before. The music was very loud which made it feel like the beat was my pulse. The only bad thing was that the vocals were hard to hear over the music. After they were done with their part of the show both of us refilled our drink and looked around at the feast of the venue. The warning horn pulled us back to the big concert hall, but this time we were going to sit in the balcony which was fairly empty compared to the amount of people that was there. We had a view with the stage right in front of us and it was still vibrating my bones. Overall, the venue and show was really enjoyable.
