Great music venue. A decent variety of food vendors on site and close to upscale dining and shopping.

Awesome place. Saw Steve Miller Band. Had a great time. It was kind of a hot day, they need more shaded areas or covered areas.

I first have to say the music was great "Redwood Son" but I fear that there is going to be a lawsuit on the horizon if someone doesn't monitor parents who cannot parent. Kids were running all over the stage, standing up with the musician and dancing, etc. We were scared that these 2-10 year olds were going to fall off stage. They COMPLETELY distracted from this great artist. Even after the performer kindly asked for the parents to get children off stage....only 50% did so. COMPLETE disrespect on the part of these self centered adults. Felt like I was at a competition for Tots and Tiaras!!! Isn't the dance area enough? I think it is great for the kids to be introduced to music and on the dance floor but I would like to enjoy it also...please!

Thanks for the excellent feedback Elaine, we certainly pride ourselves in trying to make sure our events are safe for all. This is something we have monitored closely and appreciate the valid concerns. We like that families are excited to dance and share the stage with artists when appropriate, we know sometimes folks can get a little carried away. Always feel free to call our office 541-312-8510 or e-mail us at Thanks and enjoy the music!

I had a bad experience at LSA which was compounded by being completely ignored by the people in their office who handle complaints. I sent a short email saying I had a problem at an event which received a quick iPhone "What happened?" email. I responded with the email below, which never received a reply, despite 2 follow ups. I won't be back and I won't spend any money at any of Les Schwab's businesses. " Hi Marney. Yesterday was my first experience at LSA and it's doubtful that I'll ever be back. I started my day in Seattle because of work and had to drive home to Portland (where I live), grab a few things and drive the whole way to Bend for the show. After 7 hours of driving I got to LSA around 7:30 and parked pretty far away because the lots were pretty full. (Kudos to LSA for having free parking.) Having never been to LSA, I checked the website this week to see if I needed to know anything special. I was excited to find that I could bring in an empty water bottle and a "low rise" chair. I got to the gate right around 8 pm and was immediately told that my chair was probably too big. Without enclosing a photo, my chair is a foldable camping chair from REI. I would call it a normal-sized chair, maybe even a bit small considering I'm 6'7". The man at the door (#306) along with another woman, pulled out a yard stick and measured my chair and said it was too big. The back was too high and the seat was too far from the ground. I first asked why this wasn't posted on the site and they said robotically, "Sir your chair is too big". I asked what the back height or the seat height had to do with anything and they just kept saying "Sir your chair is too big". No matter what question I asked, the response was "Sir your chair is too big". They told me I could put it back in my car or leave it outside at my own risk. My chair was $40 and I'm not leaving it outside. During this conversation, Beck's performance started. (Sidenote: Having worked in the nightlife & live music business for over a decade, the event staff seemed more like kids & old people willing to work for minimum wage than a qualified event staff. One guy was sitting on the curb smoking on the way back to my car.) During the 25 minutes it took me to walk to my car and back I got to hear 5 Beck songs, including my favorite song of his. What a treat. I even left my water bottle in my car because I didn't want to risk it being too many ounces or violating another rule that I missed and having to leave it somewhere. On my way back to the venue I counted 9 security guards that I walked by and nobody said a word on the way in about my chair. 9. Nothing like watching the next 30 minutes of a show while being furious. It makes for a great experience. I also watched the rest of the show thirsty because I didn't want to waste any more time trying to find a water fountain and I sure as hell wasn't giving LSA a dime for a drink. I've enclosed a screen shot from your website listing nothing specific about chair dimensions along with 2 different signs posted at the venue, both of which don't fully clarify chair dimensions. Hopefully your web team and designers can clarify these for future attendees. I have several friends planning trips to visit Portland this Summer and I was going to suggest some shows at LSA (Counting Crows, ZZ Top) but that won't be happening. I won't be back."
