    Always a good concert venue. There is a parking garage across the street, I recommend parking there.

    They serve pizza now, which is rad! No gum allowed inside anymore though

    Seen countless shows here over the past 12 years. The venue consistently gets great bands but also attracts rude and obnoxious crowds. Be prepared to stare at somebody's phone for half the night.

    A bit pricey for average tickets, but it's close to campus and brings in some damn good bands.

    Jimmy Eat World Concert!

    Can't bring your gum in....?

    Floor is slanted so you can see better if you get stuck in the back.

    Allow extra time to get in and pick up tix if you didn't in advance, take light rail whenever possible (Washington/center stop right next to venue).

    Johnny Volume · August 5, 2014
  • Ana S.

    Get here early to make friends and to get a great view!

    Still the strongest drinks of any place in town. Much improved draft beer selection. Oh yeah, concerts too.

    Chad · April 22, 2014

    Hate this venue

    Angie Ippolito · April 20, 2014
  • Eric S.

    My heart breaks whenever there is a show here I wanna see. Bad sound, terrible security. Just overall bad.

    Eric Stout · April 10, 2014
  • Lauren ..

    Used to love this place, but they're all rude there now. Will call is impossible & they charge for parking. I try to avoid the Marquee as much as possible

  • Frank G.

    Worst venue ever

    Frank G®™ · March 19, 2014
  • Ventrice S.

    Also they bumped it up it's $7 for parking now I'd just pay it for the convenience

    Ventrice Sykes · March 7, 2014
  • Ventrice S.

    Hey assholes smoke in the will call line ;)

    Ventrice Sykes · February 28, 2014
  • Coby L.

    Recommend walking to the venue but overall great place for a concert

    Coby Larson · November 18, 2013
  • Vianka V.

    Awesome place for a show. Try to avoid the front of the stage if you don't want to get hurt.

    Vianka Villa · November 18, 2013
  • Jacob G.

    This definitely is one of my favorite venues to see a show in Arizona.

    Jacob Goldstein · November 18, 2013
  • Ally W.

    This venue was a hassle! If you go make sure you get there early to deal with a small parking lot and cash for parking! Just as any concert, it was pretty packed but very convenient by ASU campus.

    Ally Walker · November 18, 2013
  • Katie-Lee

    TSA-level security. They WILL take your pens and other unnecessary items. You can get close to the band, but the sound system is out of control and tends to blur.

    Katie-Lee · November 18, 2013
  • Kathryn H.

    So many mixed feelings about this place but boy can they put on a concert.

    Kathryn Hessenauer · November 16, 2013
  • kristofer k.

    Great place for a show you can always walk up on the far right side up to the stage anytime. Bring cash, ordered 2 drinks and had to have friend buy because they don't take card.

    kristofer kalkbrenner · November 15, 2013
  • Mallory G.

    Small venue, standing room only, be prepared to either get drinks spilled on your or smacked in the face by a random shoe. Can't complain about ticket prices though!

    Mallory G · November 13, 2013
  • Maile C.

    The Venue, which is located south of the Mill Ave. District, invites smaller known bands and artists to perform, in a 1,000+ stand up only theatre. Fun place, and tickets are relatively cheap.

    Maile Canlas · August 5, 2013
  • Bobby S.

    Beware. Security are complete dicks.

    Bobby Seaton · July 28, 2013
  • Demetrio C.

    Pat down worse then TSA, they even make up get rid of your gum, small parking lot and hot & Sweaty.

    Demetrio Coffman · May 26, 2013
  • Christopher D.

    Get there early to park in the main lot, but not too early that you have to hang out way before the show cause there is NOTHING to do there before the show but drink expensive drinks.

    Christopher Deutsch · April 16, 2013
  • Mike C.

    Ridiculous security here, they make you take your shoes off out on a dirty sidewalk. What the fuck are they looking for??? I said fuck that shit, I'm not taking them off and they just let me pass.

    Mike Clark · March 21, 2013
  • Mike C.

    If you have to do the will call line go early! The box office is open at Noon.

    Mike Clark · March 20, 2013
  • John S.

    Great spot to catch a concert because of the size. Not a bad seat in the house and the smaller atmosphere makes for some great shows. Sound is decent but don't miss your favorite act when they play.

    John Spataro · February 16, 2013
  • Drew P.

    Probably my favorite venue to see live performances at in Phoenix. It's small enough where you don't feel like you're an entire football field away from the stage.

    Drew Pociask · February 16, 2013
  • Edmund H.

    Get there early because then you can get up to the front. One time I got there early to see Pepper and the opening act was a punk band. The lead singer of the punk jumped from the stage to my arms!

    Edmund Hubbard · February 16, 2013
  • Brandon S.

    Pick your tickets up before the show so your not waiting in line at will call and try to avoid driving by taking the lightrail!

    Brandon Smith · February 15, 2013
  • Melissa B.

    Closest Music Venue to ASU Tempe campus. Great musicians but parking lot is 5$. Tickets usually sell out pretty fast. Buy tickets before a show online.

    Melissa B · February 15, 2013
  • Ashley

    Make sure you have cash when you come, I had to pay $7 for parking!

    Ashley · February 13, 2013
  • Daniel R.

    Best place in Tempe to see a concert! Purchase tickets ahead of time, often sells out quick

    Daniel Rodriguez · February 11, 2013
  • Jon M.

    Fucking Awesome.

    Jon Maida · February 2, 2013
  • Melissa P.

    I don't care what people have to say about this venue. I have had some memorable moments here with great bands including Matt & Kim The Neighbourhood, Passion Pit, and Band Of Horses.

    Melissa Perez · November 15, 2012
  • Melissa F.

    Hey assholes, don't smoke in the will call line.

    the Band of Horses......are Amazing Live.

    Tonight Live...... the Band of Horses.

    I hated this place. The security people are rude and condescending and act like they're guarding a maximum security prison. Don't bring any food or drink, they will take it from you.

    Christie Maillet · October 11, 2012
  • Haylee A.

    Circa survive :)

    Haylee Anderson · October 6, 2012

    Apparently everyone has to get there tickets from will call. Absolute bullshit. Takes for fucking ever.

    Christopher Murphy · May 31, 2012
  • David G.

    Once was the old Red River Opera a decade or so ago. Now's a great roadhouse to see smaller touring rock/metal/alt/etc. bands. Has big bar with fast servers and smoking patio. The acoustics are great!

    David Greenwood · March 29, 2012
  • Chris G.

    Great venue, lots of room. Always a great time!
