That particular corner is very quiet. My friend who plays there on Saturday walks there down west Clifton carrying his gear and has never had a problem. He probably has a greater chance of being robbed walking with musical equipment on Warner than at Schwartz's Point. Not that he's that far up Clifton.

Yeah there are a surprising number of muggings and other minor street crimes on Warner St., considering there aren't many non-students in the area. A pizza guy for Addriatico's was carjacked on Warner about 3 years ago. He wasn't hurt and the car was recovered but somebody didn't get their pizza. I'm not aware of any patrons of Schwartz's point ever having trouble with muggings are car break-ins.

I've been up to the area around Schwartz's and have never had an uneasy feeling like some areas. I just don't know why I have never gone to Schwartz's.

I agree that the best Blue Wisp location was in the basement of the Doctor's Building (LPK). But then again, I have not been to the new location.

The sound is really bright in the new location. It's that type of reflective sound that makes the drums sort of disappear (seems to happen in rooms with a lot of glass and a high ceiling). I have seen the big band twice in the new location and can hardly hear the drumming. Also for ballads a clinked fork or glass reflects through the whole place. It's not *bad* sound by any stretch but I think they could improve it a little if an expert came in and figured out what to do.

Location #2 in the basement didn't have a bright or muffled sound. You could hear that people were talking but it didn't echo. I think it echos a bit in the new place so you don't want to lean over and say anything to people in your group.

The sound in the place that was just torn down on E. 8th was DEAD. Really sucked. The only person I saw sound good there was Wynton Marsalis. He played a secret show there one night in 2008 after a big show at the Aronoff. His band was outstanding and he sounded good of course. His band could really fill that room. I didn't hear anyone else ever really fill that room.
