The Pizza at Backspace is sort of special.

We stopped in The Backspace for a quick bite before trying to make the sold out Quiet Company show at Holy Mountain.

All the ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality. The meat is sliced to order on a hand crank machine, the oven is wood fired... it's almost like going back in time. The place is really small, just a few tables.

We also made a brief stop for fun and games at 508 Tequila bar.

We arrived at the QC show about 8:20. Listed door time was 8 PM. BUT, we found a line, doors were NOT open. While we patiently waited in line, employess came out and smoked next to the line... it's like we were trapped there to endure their 2nd hand smoke. We finally got into the venue around 9 PM. At nearly 10 PM the first band had not yet taken the stage, there were two bands scheduled before Quiet Company...  Realizing QC was not going to start before midnight, it proved to be a bad fit for us.  We finished our one beer, decided that was enough for one night and came home. win some, lose some.
