I think each has its own sound. DGD is the main focus for those guys despite all the side projects and it shows, and ALLB is very different from DGD (especially this last album).
Wondering what kind of venue "Sons of Herman Hall" is.
I just think they waste so much effort by splitting up their energy into ten different projects instead of perfecting one or two of them haha.
Sons of Herman is weird. It's an old fraternity/hostel/social club with an upstairs and a downstairs room. Both have moveable chairs you can set up on the floor wherever you want and a whole lot more room than needed. The stage downstairs is pretty low and most bands choose to play on the floor, and upstairs the stage has a step that leads to it but bands also choose to play on the floor. It's cool and it's cheap, but it is definitely unusual and more on the DIY side. There is a makeshift parking lot across the street that is free so it's pretty convenient unless it fills up/somebody blocks you off (it's a grass field on top of the curb with some rubble for parking).
Overall it's a nice venue with some interesting history and decoration and fits the DIY/intimate show vibe pretty well since it's cheap, unregulated, and most bands don't use the stage. Only problem with it is that it can look super empty because the room has a ton of open space so it seems like there are only a handful of people (not that it ever gets actually crowded).
