Man or Astroman? has always been very cool and generous to their fans. Birdstuff has talked to me at every Man or Astroman? since I first saw them in 1997. I got to tell Birdstuff and Star Crunch that they are more important to me than the Beatles. I was never the same after seeing them live at Boston's in Tempe in 97.
Birdstuff told me that he still has the Man or Astroman? Painting that I gave him in 2001. What a complement!
-Buy a hotel room at a nearby hotel if you plan to see a show at the Casbah. The hotels are all within a reasonable walking distance or a $7-10 cab ride away.
- If you come early to a show and they will not let you in you have some options for near-by food and things to do. Some places to eat include: a Subway across the street, a fancy Mexican food restaurant about a block away and a parking garage with vending machines nearby.
-Casbah has two bars inside with video games in the back if you don't enjoy the opening band.
The Octopus Project was the opening band for Man or Astroman? and I really enjoyed their set but not every opening act can be an amazing one.
-After the show, you have lots of options for bars to hop but if you are in the mood for late night food a Denny's is a 15 minute walk from the Casbah.
