Although Portishead recorded a great live album at this 1930s-era ballroom, the sound system can leave something to be desired. But the room gets a bit of a bad rap, as large halls go: It’s spacious (thanks to the addition of a balcony) and a great place to catch assorted medium-to-big acts like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ghostface and Arctic Monkeys.
