Axl- since you haven't been in since June, we redid our heating and air situation. It'll be nice in there- to give you an idea, didn't even break a sweat at gonerfest this year. We typically turn our main heater off right before doors due to humans bringing in their own mouth breathing heat as well as the heater faces directly at the stage. Unknown Hinson actually asked us to turn everything off because it gets hot on stage during the winter. And I agree- the heat at that sword show was basically unbearable and it was the impetus behind us spending many thousands of dollars on the new system. It'll be a climate controlled 68 in there tonight.
As for your anomoly quote- you haven't thought of the human element. humans give off slightly less than 1 degree Fahrenheit per person when they enter a room. Multiply that by 175 people and, well, actually you hit terminal number that it can't go beyond or the building would start to melt. But, that's the reason it gets hot when it's 25 degrees outside. Same thing used to happen at the deli when they threw shows. and that doesnt even include musicians playing their gear which give off a ton of heat...
And yes, it can be cold as a witchs tit in there when we don't turn the heater or Pat works- trust me Im there every day.
