We have long waited for a place like The Stage to join the crop of local venues, and hopefully, fingers crossed, it'll stick around for a long, long time. It’s a place that hosts crawfish boils and St. Vincent, late night impromptu Wyclef performances and local-grown artwork on the walls. This indoor/outdoor space feels easy and open but well designed and chic. The line at the door is rarely a hassle, and the occasional food truck parks itself at the back of the yard. The curated blend of the best local talent, events of all sorts, and indie touring acts is quickly becoming the signature style of this newish place. Basically, it’s super dope.
