I realize that the Doug Fir draws a scene crowd, but why do roughly a third of the people at shows just hang out in the back chatting? We can hear you! At all times! Do you just see it as a $15 cover charge to go hang out while ignoring the artist you're going to brag about seeing the next day? The Doug Fir is a cool venue with great acoustics. If you don't give enough of a shit to listen to the concert you're attending, leave.
