Intimate venue for shows and a great place to see your friends. I saw Jackson Brown there in November standing room only, though I had great seats if not a little too close to the double doors, but near the stage.
The bar is open and life is good. Great place to attend any event!
A fine event scene on the reknowned Colorado College Campus. Historic architecture and wildly phenomenal acoustics make this one of the best kept secrets among COS most cultured population. Many offerings are free for the enjoyment of the community, and the community <3s this, turning out in good numbers for every event. <3 Packard Hall and Colorado College!
great show, fantastic music, huge crowd, three stages and a lot of fun

Loonees is awesome!
Saw a group called " From Slaves to King " at the Black Sheep. This group is amazing and would not be surprised if they make it Big. The Black Sheep did an awesome job getting this band, and the exciting thing is they are from Colorado Springs.. ! Thanks Black Sheep for supporting your local bands, right there says it all!
This is the best venue we played at in on our tour... Pro everything it is the real deal and legit... How did they do this and how do they keep doing what they are doing?
No bar who cares its just great/ If your band gets to play there it will be one of the best venues you will have ever played... If there were more stars they would deseve it... Its like a family + we were treated like royality.. hats off to you guys we loved it!! If your touring thru colorado springs this is it!!
One more comment on the Goth Night. We love having it. We'd love to expand it and I'd love to book some goth bands if you know of any locally or in state. In order to grow Goth Night there needs to be a good showing for it each week. It's getting better all the time. That said, your suggestions about how it could improve are always welcome. I know Gentle always has an open ear and is looking to make it as good as it can be. So, thanks for your feedback.
Working hard on the bar food scenario. I have been booking the shows there for the last couple months and I agree that food is a huge plus for any place. I kind of look at it like this... my favorite places in Denver (to see shows) all have some sort of food attached or next door. So, that would be a win-win for Zodiac. Hopefully, we can make it happen in the near future.
Can be charming, depending on who's there and who is playing in the band. Incredible players like Wayne Wilkenson on guitar are there on occasion, but then some wannabees always seem to show up. The most forgetable-the highly over-rated Bruce Pennington on piano.....ugh..... Seriously, if I hear another cliche' "Liberace"-like scale run from the keys i'll jump out a window. As long as there is a variety rotation in play, this place is worth checking out... but beware the afor mentioned lounge lizard act.
My wife and I have been since day one, We have been treated better than royalty.The staff are a gift from God!!!! The drinks and food are a passport to excellence!!!!! If you have not been here you must come and enjoy the SERVICE and FOOD !!!!
I just went to Motif for the first time this weekend and LOVED it!! There was a male singer who was amazing. Loved that I felt like I was in a big city, but only had to drive 20 minutes to get there. My friends and I shared a bunch of stuff off the menu. The sliders and fries were to die for and the chef's special was great as well. A little hard to find, but it was well worth the search, it was a real treat. The service was great, and the drinks as well. The mango martini was out of this world. Can't wait to go back!
Not worth the money! I came here for a girls'-night-out and we were seated by the piano; all we could focus on was the "colorful" language we heard coming from the kitchen. The food and drinks were mediocre at best, and the servers were obviously overwhelmed. Also, after being open for almost a year, you would expect this place to have some sort of sign, but this is not the case. To top it off, as I was leaving, I passed by the side-door and had who I believe was the yeller with colorful language from the kitchen tell me to "have a good evening" as he sat in a sweaty, dirty t-shirt and shorts and smoked a cigarette. I would expect this sort of behavior and attire from a fast food restaurant, not an upscale jazz club. I absolutely advise against going here!
I didn't put them down, indeed many people I love dearly are guests and staff there. I simply think that goth night can be more. The Zodiac is showing very strong potential to give just that. I'm writing a review of the club and it's perfectly appropriate to cite the competition.
This was meant to be more about the Zodiac than the Underground, but that being said, it's been a long time since The UG has really been drenched in the goth spirit. It's nice that it's there and has been for so long, but that doesn't mean it cannot nor should not be done better. Just because it's the oldest, doesn't mean it's the best or even a real measure of what a goth club should be.
well the underground always supports goth night so i wouldn't put them down,everyone else always abandons the scene.
I've been in a few times, and I REALLY love it. I was crushed when the Rocket Room, the previous club, closed... but this has TRULY made up for it. The decor is beautiful, the music is fabulous, and the staff and regulars include some of the fundamental players in the local scene going back as far as the 80's. If it's this fabulous when it's this new, I expect that within a few more months it will be one of the hottest clubs in town, and may even destroy the Underground's HUGELY outdated rep as THE local goth club. I give it four stars.. and will raise it to five if they add bar food.
Our first experience here was for Valentines Day a couple of years ago and we were seated in the ballroom, which was converted to a dining room for the occasion. It was okay, but less than perfect. We just went back again a couple of weeks ago and were royally treated in the 'proper' dining room. The wine list is very extensive and the food and service were superb. We're putting this place on our top 10 list of local restaurants.
All I can say is WATCH OUT BLACK SHEEP.... SUNSHINE STUDIOS LIVE ROCKS!!
ITS ALWAYS PACKED NOW. All the bands I have seen there just love this place. Who needs a bar... Its a Venue and the best in the Springs!! Best Sound, Lighting and Stage... The crew are Pro's and know what there doing. See you guys this week end!!
Had breakfast in the dining room recently. This is allegedly a 4 diamond place, but the floor was dirty (food crumbs), the cream was old and curdled in the coffee, the service was slow and inattentive, but the food was good. It will be interesting to see if they hold on to all of their diamonds.
Loved this place. The drinks were great and the music was fantastic. I can't wait to go back!
