    Still one of the best concert venues in Philly, to me.

    One of the more annoying venues. Bar upstairs gets packed quick, get there early! Otherwise be ready to use binoculars from the back to see the show.

    Been going to see live shows here since the place opened. Kind of like a home to me. I usually always get there a little early and have no trouble sitting the rail!

    Don't go here unless you REALLY want to see whoever is playing. Sound is OK but popular shows oversold to the point you can barely get in. Have fun with the $5 bottled water to stave off passing out.

    Hadn't been here in 4 years, and it's still the dumbest venue in the city. Bad location, cash only, $4.50 surcharge on their ATMs. Go see a show at UT instead.

    Very beautiful place! I highly recommend sitting as close to the front as possible and as far center as you can get.

    For all day shows, the concrete floors really make a difference. Wear good shoes. Wearing vans will ruin your day.

    Not a total "shocker:" this four-decades-old live music hall occupies an actual former electric factory.

    A small place and not the best venue to see a concert. Couldn't hear the words to any of the bands songs. Heard "thump, thump" the whole time. Never coming here again. Go to TLA for concerts.

    If you're upstairs get a spot by the railing early. Otherwise you won't be able to see anything. They have screens but who goes to a concert to watch a video screen? I want to see the stage!
