If you’ve been following my posts, then you’d know that I’m trying to do and see as much in Atlanta as possible. There’s a ton of history in this city, as well as entertainment for young people. The Tabernacle is an epic venue in ATL that has been recommended to me from a number of different friends.
Bucketlist: The Atlanta Tabernacle
YES! Last week I finally made it to the Tabernacle. The Tabernacle is one of the items on my epic Atlanta to-do list. I had been wanting to come to this venue because it’s a well-known venue in Atlanta. It’s an old church that got turned into a concert venue right in downtown Atlanta.
I love venues like this because it feels really small, and you feel really close to the show, regardless of where you are in the venue.
Plus, check out the ceiling!
My favorite venue in San Francisco is the Warfield, and the Tabernacle completely reminded me of it because of the way the ground floor slopes up, and it’s pretty much the best place. You feel like you’re right in the middle of everything.
The 18 bit loliltas opened up for Above & Beyond, and they were pretty good too.
My only beef with the show is that I went with a girlfriend to grab some beers, and they closed off the ground floor even though Leo and our friend, Prateek, were there! It’s kind of bizarre because people aren’t mean or pushy at those types of shows… It’s not like you’re going to get knocked out in a mosh pit. Lesson learned – I won’t be leaving the floor before the main act comes on.
Anyway, the Tabernacle was awesome. I’ll be back for sure!
