During The Beat's interview with Chis Thile and Gabe Witcher of the Punch Brothers, Thile (late of Nickel Creek) offered unsolicited praise for the Southern Theatre.

"We're looking forward to coming to Columbus. The Southern is one of my favorite places to play," he said, without a hint of hyperbole.

Nice.

Thile's new band play he Southern Friday night. Go here for information, to buy tickets and for a cool video.
