I'm taking my daughter to Columbus tomorrow to see one of her favorite bands.  The show is at the A&R Music Bar.  Does anyone have any suggestions on places to park?
DrJohn, around the corner next to where the baseball park is, you will find on-street parking without much problem. There is also paid parking available in the parking lots there.

I saw Temples there 2 years ago. It's not the greatest place to see a show. Awkward lay-out.

Enjoy your time with your daughter!

I'm one of those too cheap to pay for parking. Maybe a meter for a little bit. Meters are in effect til 10 o'clock and available on Long Street. There's parking on Cozzins and Hanover, but if there's a hockey or baseball game it will be packed. My favorite is Hocking. You park on dirt and have to go under the railroad tracks, but you are almost guaranteed free parking. PS: A&R is above The Basement in the top right corner.

Like everyone else said, there is a pay lot right behind the place, but where's the challenge in that?

Many thanks to you three gents for the advice. I've been to quite a few shows in Columbus over the years but this will be my first time at a PromoWest venue.  Since I'll have my daughter with me I'll probably go with one of the options close to the place that charges $.  But if I ever go to a show there without my wife and/or daughter. I'll certainly check into TayFo's Hocking Street suggestion, since paying for parking doesn't appeal to me, either.

If that weren't a school night I'd do that...

Sunday July 3, 2016--Pere Ubu at Ace Of Cups.  You can always count on them playing Columbus and Cleveland.  It wouldn't kill them to play Cincinnati every once in a while.

Unless the lineup has changed, Obnox is opening this show, which I think is an excellent bill. Wish I could go but will be out of town. If you go DrJ, I look forward to your full report. :)

2/11/2017--Webb Wilder, Natalie's
3/3/2017--Jon Langford, Hogan House Productions
4/1/2017--Mark Eitzel and Howe Gelb, Rumba Café

Probably won't be able to make it to Webb's show but the other two are real possibilities.

How is the Rumba Cafe still a going concern?  I've been there several times and I've been the only one (or one of only three or four) in attendance every time.  They don't promote their shows and it's a total dump.

I don't know.  I've never been there before and I don't recall any of my Columbus friends saying anything about the place.  But Eitzel spent a lot of his formative years in Columbus, started his music career there, and has a loyal fan base in the area .  He'll draw a crowd.
