I'm not a longtime Lila fan, so I don't feel the need to defend their honor like some other commenters. That said, as a reviewer, you should know a term like "bro band" is a loaded term that comes with connotations - primarily negative ones. If that's what you meant, you should own up to and explain your reasoning up front. Instead, you bury it in a clause of a complex sentence. That's not fair to Lila or any band you review.
Personally, Lila's rapping veers a bit too close to the rap-core style of Linkin Park for my own tastes. But see how I did that? Explained WHY I liked/disliked something before unilaterally declaring it as "_______"?!
I recognize that all reviews are opinion pieces, but casually dropping such a definitive (& possibly the review's strongest) assertion strikes me as irresponsible, careless, or both.
You missed their best kept secret (and Durham's best breakfast sandwich). The bagel sandwiches are AMAZING, especially with the maple Sriracha!
Hope they continue to keep it local... seen some great shows there!
Yep, been here a couple times already and I can confirm it's *definitely* worth it!
"Personally, it makes me not want to reinvest in Durham, especially when I know that I can go 30 minutes east to Raleigh and not have a problem," - REALLY?! Because the Raleigh crowd would support a place like Whiskey jjjuuusssttt as well as Durham...
I can sympathize, but my guess is that most patrons want to be outside to escape the smoke inside.
