Have been to GE to see Iris deMent (2 times). Also did the Big Crafty there. Such a wonderful atmosphere - kind of like Soundstage on a much smaller scale. Yes, acoustics are jammin. Would much rather get a ticket for a show there than other venues in AVL. Only discomfort was how hot it got inside one summer evening when Iris played. Sweated beer bullets. But definitely will go back (good ticket prices, cold beer, congenial guy at the front door). Their show calendar offers so much, who can really complain?
