This sounds great but Santo's is NOT an acceptable venue for live music. Terrible sound system for live music, horrible sight lines, bad club/bro "vibe." Very disappointing.

are you on drugs? santo's seems as laid back as laid back can be if we are talking legit clubs. other than your standard ID check at the door there's no hassle or bullying by security. not even a bag check. I'd say the place has a pretty decent Knitting Factory type of vibe.
Bad sound? what do you expect? I think the place sounds pretty great inside but I've only been there once. and as far as the "bro" vibe goes, I'd say that heavily depends on the events you attend.

as far as I am concerned you can give me Santo's over any other "club club" in the city anytime.

Mainly speaking from the incredibly oversold, poorly managed, horrible sounding, stage-too-small-to-accommodate-the-artists Bonnie Prince Billy show there. I think even people who enjoyed themselves would describe it as a clusterfuck.

You guys are crazy.
I go there all the time, and it is always good vibes.
The sound system is amazing, and Bonnie Prince Billie is a spoiled princess.
I give you my word that this festival is going to be nothing but lovely.
