    2015 Best Neighborhood Diversion, ALLSTON: "… concerts span a variety of genres and give prime billing to only-in-Allston faves like Will Dailey, Shea Rose, and Bearstronaut."

    Cool local spot for live bands.

    Awesome selection of draught beers; try something by Goose Island (I suggest a 312)!

    One of the best live music venues around.

    Best venue in Boston. Not a bad spot in the place. Never a wait for drinks, sound is very good - and Sunset grill is next door. Parking... That's a different story.

    Earplugs. Mid and high range is completely blown out here. Bass is great.

    The bartenders are good at servicing a crowd but can't even serve a good drink. It's got booze alright but goof luck if you get the right one.

    Really nice venue! Little sound treatment, so bring your earplugs (just in case). Multiple bars, and some pool tables. $10 margarita, but it was a fairly large drink, so it was worth it!

    This space housed Harpers Ferry for 40 years, which was the cornerstone of “Allston Rock City” and had its last concert Halloween night in 2011.

    WHY? performs on Tuesday, Feb. 12. "Attend purely for the eccentricity of the experience," says Flores. WHY? blends "hip-hop with indie-rock, folk, atypical vocals, and quirky lyrics."

    The venue has a capacity of just over 400, providing a more relaxed, intimate concert experience for fans and performers than you’ll find at some of the city’s other live music clubs. Read more

    Honestly feel like when it was Harpers they booked better acts for cheap. Still a good place in a great spot to get out meet people and dance but just sayinn

    This venue holds only a few hundred people, but seeing your favorite alternative/indie rock groups here feels like an acoustic set in your backyard thanks to it's size. Plus, most shows are only $15.

    Try the Goulosh!

    This venue only holds about 250 people, so it always makes for a really intimate show that’s guaranteed to be special.” – Andy Grammer

    Don't stand at the stage you will be behind the house speakers and the shitty sound will sound worse than you could ever imagine

    Small venue where you can see a decent show for cheap money. Will be on the lookout for more concerts there in the future.
