    Being under 21, my impression of Crescent Ballroom is solely based on the music. I really enjoy the diversity of bands they have, and they're the venue I most frequently check for upcoming shows.

    Hooray for a music venue that DOESN'T subject you to a TSA pat down. The bouncers are super nice, and they have free ice water for under-age concert patrons. Favorite in Phoenix.
