Have you ever visited the bathroom during a concert just to escape the band for a few minutes? Well that ploy will never work for you anymore at the Birchmere where the club has installed a pretty fabulous speaker system that carries a high-quality, live audio feed from the stage directly to the stalls. The Birchmere did this a couple of months ago and who knows, maybe this is a trend in the making. It's actually not a bad idea, as long as bathroom sounds never make it to the stage, as recently happened to CNN's Jeff Greenfield (see Squibs in the Reliable Source). - Joe
