Last Word 

What do you think about the Odeon closing? Big loss, or good riddance?

"I'll miss it. I've seen a lot of great shows there over the years, and it was always a great place to see a show, with great sound. Hopefully, someone will reopen the room and keep it going."

-- Matt W., Lakewood

"I think the last show I saw at the Odeon was Rammstein in 199?, and then nobody I wanted to see ever played there again! When they did have good bands it wasn't a bad joint, but now it's no big loss."

-- Jimbo H., Granger

"I won't miss it as much as I miss the Euclid Tavern."

-- Dott S., Lakewood

"I'm definitely going to miss playing there. We did a lot of shows there. When we started playing, just playing there was an accomplishment. Compared to the rest of the venues in Cleveland, it was a bigger room with a better PA. It was like playing Gund Arena. "

-- Jim LaMarca, Chimaira bassist
