It's dark. It's hotter than Satan's girlfriend. The low ceiling means all the heat being generated by the crowd is rising -- only to fall and suffocate unwitting and terribly sweaty concert-goers. But there's something primal and viscerally satisfying about paying to stand and sweat among the crush of bodies while your favorite indie band or local rockers obliterate the stage. If you're looking for a club that is based on atmosphere or ambiance, you might need to look elsewhere. But if it's music you're after, whether it's punk, rock, metal or something completely different, the Firebird is your new best friend. Having hosted everyone from the Dead Milkmen and Swans to Big Freedia and Best Coast, the Firebird is a lively and open-minded host to an show-going experience to be remembered.
