    The Showbox added to its family in 2007 w addition of larger Showbox SoDo, a converted-warehouse-turned-concert venue just south of stadiums in SoDo district. It has wood-beam and brick architecture

    This Showbox location is much better than the one at Pike Place.

    They won't let you take drinks out of the bar area. I went near the stage and had a friend grab drinks. She had to leave them in the bar area. What a waste.

    This venue is delicious. Try to name the band you're here to see for bonus points!

    Has decent acoustics and a nice bar. Be sure to get close to the stage!

    To those who come and shoot shows. Make sure you have an on site contact if there is a problem with credentials because security won't let you in nor will they get the tour manager. Trust me on this!

    I've always loved the showbox @the market, but the sound at the showbox sodo has always been garbage even before it was owned by the showbox, it's a big concrete box.

    sound is awful... and don't worry about getting stuck behind tall people because you can't really see anything anyways.other than that, the upstairs bar is cool.

    Avoid the excessive fees ticket bastards charge and go down to the box ofice to purchase your tix. Saved almost 20%.

    Nice enough venue but they are fucking assholes for not letting in DSLRs. Leave it at home or you'll get turned back.

  • Jennifer M.

    Great staff - really very nice. But must add that the sound is not great. Just saw Apocalytica and I could barely hear them - too much buzzing & too loud. Needs some acoustics tweaking.

    good size venue with great sound system :)

    I don't always see concerts at the showbox, but when I do I prefer XX.

    Super venue for up and coming artists. Decent priced drinks & pretty good views from anywhere in the venue.
