    If you ever want to skip the long line go to A&R Bar and they will let you in as soon as the doors opens. Works every time. Plus you can take your drinks in as long as they are in a cup!

    I fell in ❤ with the boy at th rock show. Typically if I had to choose between the basement, newpory, or express live I wouldn't because all three are great. I think the basement is less hardcore.😉

    INDOORS: Must get there early, wait in line for gates to open. Long lines! Get the chairs behind the box seats ASAP or enjoy standing for 3+ hours. Outdoors is more mellow, get there early too.

    A nice little venue - bigger for outdoor shows - that hosts some great shows every year. The so-called Arena District can get congested, but the LC is typically worth the hassle.

    One of the best places in Columbus. Concerts usually start late and be sure to get a poncho cuz Columbus rains are unpredictable.

    Nice outdoor concert area. This photo is from almost the back... Clearly not a bad seat in the house!

    Don't buy tickets to their outdoor seating for large concerts(the parking lot is a stage)no water and long beer lines.Get it together LC.Other than that this venue rocks esp. outside on the lawn.

    Best venue in Cbus the last guy can eat it. It's 100% better than the Polaris amp. Ever was, and who doesn't wanna be outside at a concert w no bad seat in house!??? Really? Ps... F yea Willie Nelson

    For quicker access to outdoor concerts, stand in the line for the back entrance. You'll need to have your tickets on you to get in.

    Use the A&R deck for faster gate access. Read about it on foursquare and yelp. Beat the line by an hour!
