Probably would have seen Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra here a month or so back, but the ticket prices were insane.  Also, I've heard thisplace is setup pretty horribly.

You've heard wrong.  The setup is odd but far from horrible.  There are very few bad seats in the house.  The prices do tend to be on the high side, though the tickets for Red Wanting Blue and The Verve Pipe are more Reasonable.  It would behoove the ownership to have more reasonably priced shows.

Well, since this thread started 2 1/2 years ago with complaints about ticket prices, and predictions that it would have trouble staying open, and yet there are still posts about concerts being held there, I'd say that management sees no reason to lower ticket prices anytime soon.

there have been some shows there that I was mildly interested in, but, like others have said, the ticket prices were way overpriced. Hence I've still not gone to any show there

A lot of the acts that have played the place tend to be ones where older, richer baby boomers or Gen X'ers or whatever will shell out the extra cash.  But one of the first acts they booked was Freedy Johnston, and the tickets were reasonably priced.  Since the place wasn't ready for opening, Freedy's show had to be moved.  More acts like Freedy, or Red Wanting Blue and The Verve Pipe, would be a step in the right direction.

One reason--but certainly not the only one--tickets are more expensive is the limited number of seats in the place--the two sections of seats are separated by the kitchen for the upstairs restaurant. But it's an intimate venue, so even the seats in back are pretty good.  And lots of times the seats in the back rows are cheaper.

The concerts are held in the basement.  The restaurant is on the main floor.

I was looking to possibly buy tickets for an upcoming show.  The venue's website is all messed up--for upcoming shows, it lists only past ones.  And their facebook page has been taken down.  I initially thought "that's it, the place is either closing or already closed".  But...a bit of looking around online revealed that the place has once again changed ticket vendors.  They're going with the Darth Vader of ticket companies, Ticketbastard.

Though it's still strange that they wouldn't announce in advance an upcoming change in the ticket seller.  I sent an email a couple of days ago detailing the problems with the website and FB page being offline and got no response, leading me to do my own online detective work.  What great customer service.

The venue has changed hands, so I bet it's new owner chaos over there.

Thanks for the update.  It must really be chaotic when the link for purchasing tickets takes you to Eventbrite, which only lists one past show and isn't even the ticket vendor anymore.

Do you know who the knew owner is?  I hope to God it isn't PromoWest.
