Never spending a dime at this place again. A couple of my friends and i went to amos southend for Summer Slaughter. Now, being a heavy metal show, there are obviously going to be mosh pits right? right. We had no problem with that, we got in a few. in a pit there are unwriten rules. One of these rules is if you are near the pit, and dont want to mosh at the time, hold out a arm as almost a shield, and usualy that is respected. People won't try to throw you in a pit if thats the situation. But in this case a few of the "moshers" where obviously trying to piss people off. One of my friends was grabbed by the shirt and slung around, being man handled by someone 3 times his size, after about 30 seconds of this, my friend tried to push himself off of this guy. He refused to let go, so my friend punched him in the arm about 3 times until the venues bouncer came and picked him up by the throat and caried him out of the building like that. He wouldn't let my friend come back in, he was "kicked out" he wouldnt hear the story, not letting my friend finnish his sentences. So i tried to talk to him myself, he told me if i said one more word everyone in my group was thrown out, this was happening while a lot of people inside that saw what happened came out to talk to my friend about how he was not in the wrong in this situation and the staff members where being ignorant. Everyone that works at the club are very rude people and are only out to look like bad ass's. We ended up leaving shortly after because we where not going back in without him. So all together, Amos Southend is a Venue that just gives off a bad vibe inside, hot, crew is rude, sound isnt that great, expensive and not worth your money.
What a nasty venue.
This place is a dump. They packed the place full and didn't put on the air. I'm sure they oversold the house--but, then again, how would they know? They collect print at home tickets at the door and do not scan them. Drinks are expensive--much more expensive than the theaters in uptown. The sound is ok, but the overpacked crowds can only be so quiet.
it is a two story office space which has been gutted and the windows bricked up. It feels like you are in the Dunder Miflin warehouse. Would never go back.
The best place in Charlotte to see a show.
Amos Southend is by far the best place in Charlotte to see a show. Cheap drink prices for downtown, reasonable ticket prices and incredible sound. Whoever said you will get towed must not be able to read because they have the biggest signs at the front door telling you were not to park.
It's also listed on the website were you can park and were you can't. Its easy access off the light rail and there is several places to eat close by before a show. This part of town is a very fun laid back place to party.
Decent venue, with a caveat. Went to see Alkaline Trio here on 3/17/10. The show itself was good, and the beer was priced well, with only one real problem - the beer is served in glass bottles rather than plastic cups. Now, normally I would prefer a bottle to a cup (tastes better, stays cold longer, etc.), but at a rock show, especially one with an active pit, people tend to be dumb and throw things. And, sure enough, within 3 minutes of the main act going onstage, I got pegged in the face by a flying glass bottle. Luckily, neither the bottle nor my face broke, but I wasn't the only one hit and this seems like it could be a huge liability issue - not to mention the fact that the floor was covered in broken glass after the show ended. I was under the impression that there were regulations about this sort of thing, but I'm from Virginia and maybe North Carolina doesn't have the same rules when it comes to proper serving vessels at concert venues - still, I think it would be a good idea for the management to look at changing their policy, at least for the shows that could get a little wild.
Charlotte's top music venue.
I usually never write reviews, but after attending my third show at Amos' I had to write one . The first show I attended at Amos was Chevelle , then I went to see Hip Hop legend Rakim and after finding nothing to do the night after Thanksgiving I headed to Amos and saw this amazing Billy Joel tribute. Talk about an diverse mixture of music- Amos Southend has it. Each time I have attended a show there the sound has been great,the prices reasonable,and the staff cordial.
After attending a show at the Fillmore and spending over $45 for 2drinks,2 beers and a soda($5 for a coke give me a break!!) I'll be spending much more time at Amos'
best place in town to see a show. I have seen many shows at Amos and it is by far the best place in town to see a show. First off ticket prices as well as the service fees are very reasonable unlike the Fillmore. Drinks prices are very inexpensive for downtown and their is not a bad seat in the house. The bartenders are friendly and fast and the security staff keeps the place trouble free. It's right next to the light rail so getting there is a breeze. I just saw Social D and the sound system blew me away. If you want to see a great show at a great price this is the place to go.
Most miserable place I've been. I don't write reviews or bad comments unless it was so aweful that it needs to be said. I've been to several shows before and have never had this problem... I could not see the bands perform. The building is esthetically pleasing but it's so long and narrow that even someone who is almost 6' can't see. Thank God I've had the pleasure of seeing the band perform before but what a waste of my money... I went there to see them perform not just listen to them. I mean I could rock out to them in the car and save my money. The only way to see is be one of the first few people in line so that you can guarantee a great standing spot which is either at the stage or upstairs in the back on the rail. BUT who wants to wait over an hour and a half to get in. It's just a horrible place to go watch a band perform!
you will get towed!.
my daughter attended the hanson show last night(10/21/09). she parked where she always parks. there were no signs warning that she should not park there. when she left the show, to drive back to school in spartanburg, her car had been towed, along with many others. the person that was
representing the tow company had watched her park there and never warned her that she would be towed. it cost $170. and pretty much ruined the evening. i think amos' southend has a responsibility to warn it's patrons as to where they should not park, especially since they hope to attract people from other towns, not familiar with the area. i don't think we'll be going back.
HORRIBLE.. When I went here for a concert, a guy near me threw a scarf onstage and the bouncer attacked me. He pushed me, spraining my elbow, and then pulled me outside and when I finally got the point across that it wasn't me, he let me back in but made me stand in the back. I was tempted to take legal action, but I eventually didn't. The staff here is the worst group of people I've ever come across, not to mention that this place is terrible for concerts sound-wise. Never go here. Don't ever, ever waste your money on this place. Even the band I saw agreed (I'm friends with the guitarist) that the place was terrible and that they were never going to play there again. Bad choice...don't do it.
I had to take two of my daughters there with their friends, haha, I lost the coin toss.
I was really impressed by getting in so fast. My kids moved up to the stage and I had a good eye on them most of the time.
It was loud! But the staff could hear what I ordered, and took care of me. I had no idea of the music, and mingled among the other parents there.
I had a rather good time there and can't wait to see my new friends at the next one.
I take it as the wife lost this one.
