    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!

    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.

    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.

    Great venue and the space is magnificent inside. A lot of big names came to this place and for it to be very close to campus, it's convenient for many people to get there. Very diverse with events!

    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.

    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.
  • Drew P.
    Drew PociaskFebruary 16, 2013
    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.
  • Edmund H.
    Edmund HubbardFebruary 16, 2013
    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!

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

    Venue of choice for many emerging artists and tours. Be sure to leave your key rings in the car or at home as they won't let you in with them. Too often people double them as "brass knuckles."
  • Christopher D.
    Christopher DeutschApril 16, 2013
    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.

    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.

    Awesome Venue!! Always has someone playing and is close to Mill Ave and ASU campus. Don't bring glow sticks if you go, they will take them.

    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.

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

    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).
  • Vianka V.

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

    Box office is open during the day on weekdays. ATM inside in the main lobby. No re-entry. Get a "candy andy" mixed drink at the bar next to the stage.

    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.

    Most people who complain about this venue must not go to shows often. Security is tight because they have to be to keep this venue open. 5$ parking. Ride the light rail if you don't want to pay.

    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!

    Don't upset the Security Staff or else you run the risk of losing your wristband which authorizes all of your alcoholic purchases inside.
