    Not terrible, but far from amazing. Prepare for the large amount of heat. Not much ventilation or elbow room. If you can overcome that, the sound quality is impeccable.

    Overpriced and under-poured drinks, lack of seating unless you want to call six months ahead for some overpriced VIP seating. The shows are usually awesome though.

    Grand Rapids' most popular concert venue, perfect for developing talent as well as national acts. Two rooms for shows - 200 & 1200 capacity

    It's a very small venue, reminded me of places I'd go see local bands in HS. Hang out by the bar if you want to see the band w/o getting kicked in the head by crowd surfers!

    The Intersection apparently doesn't know how to offer a special on foursquare. What they have on there now would be more suited for a tip or to-do

    It has been a couple of years since i played here. But the new look and new back stage is great. They just need a bigger water heater for proper showers.

    Great shows, but expect to loose your buzz or miss half of the show waiting for a drink at the bar!
