    Great Scott books the only shows that matter in Boston. The staff is the best. The music is great. The beer is cheap. It's perfect.

    Rotating taps offer some great selection. If you're lucky enough to see one of your favorite bands here, you'll probably get the chance to buy them a beer afterwards. Choose wisely.

    Basically a bar with a stage but they book quality acts, the sound is great and they're serious about the draft beer selection.

    The perfect spot to hear indie and alternative rock bands. Reasonably priced tickets (admission for most shows is between $5 and $12). One of the last 18+ venues in Boston (depending on the show.) Read more

    Amazing place to see a show. Really small, so you can get up close, also big potential to meet the band before/after shows. Will DEFINITELY be coming back.

    Booker Carl Lavin does a very, very good job bringing in both underground indie bands and bigger acts. Shows rarely run more than $15. Go Friday night for their comedy show (7 p.m.)

    When a good band rolls into town here, definitely check them out. The venue is good and you can get up close. I saw Dungen, easily the best show I've seen in Boston.
