There's no getting around the fact that when you travel away from home, you inevitably start comparing places you go to places that you're familiar with at home. When you first lay eyes on Lupos in Providence, you instantly think of Lee's Palace in Toronto (http://www.yelp.ca/biz...). Lupos got the same sort of feel that Lee's has. It's a wee bit grungy, they cater to the live act, and it's a great place to see live music. Wider than the room at Lee's, the stage is found in the centre of the far wall with a long bar opposite that is well stocked. The acoustics are good for the size of the room such that it has, in my time anyway, made acts like Crystal Method, Cowboy Junkies, and David Byrne all sound fantastic. You'll be so impressed with Lupos that you'll hop on their website about once a month to see who's playing and curse my luck that you will not able to be there.
