Venue: Eclipse is a great little independent record store in St. Paul’s Midway area. They often have in-stores in their back room.
Booking: Often local bands, but every once in awhile they get some really terrific national tours as well that are flying under the radar.
Concert Experience: Unfortunately the little room in back of the store is kind of a black hole. There are no windows, the lighting is minimal, everything is black/grey concrete. The sound is also usually pretty awful, and the sound equipment malfunctions often.
Staff: Record store kids – nice enough and knowledgeable about music
Parking: Pretty easy to pull up and park right in front of the store
Inside Scoop: Don’t even try to get on your friend’s band’s guest list. No guestees!
