    One of Boston's historic concert venues. It's has a small, intimate environment with standing room on the floor and balcony. See your favorite bands up close and personal before they hit it big!

    Any music played here is good. Beers are cheap but there's not much room for dancing, if you're looking to do that.

    Great, intimate concert venue. There's a bar on each of the two levels. You can also go to the lounge if you need to kill some time.

    By far one of my favorite venues around Boston. They just need to get rid of those poles so there's more visibility upstairs...

    Hang out in the bar next door after you get your wristband and hand stamped for the show. Better beer and some seats. Good for between sets, too.

    Try not to get stuck behind the poles, once you're behind one, it's a hassle to get out.

    Buy tickets well ahead of time for big-buzz bands. Some acts sell out far too swiftly, especially indie rock royalty.
