Formerly the Best Buy Theater, this large, corporate club begs for character but finds redemption in its creature comforts. The sound and sight lines are both good, and there’s even edible food. Those who wish to look into a musician’s eyes can stand in the ample front section; foot-weary fans can sit in the cinema-like section in back. It’s a comfortable place to see a well-known band that hasn’t (yet) reached stadium-filling fame.

The venue is a nice mid-sized theater that hosts a wide variety of bands.  Having changed names over the years from Nokia Theater to Best Buy Theater, to its current incarnation, the basic layout has stayed the same. Enter at street level and take an escalator down a flight. Bars are scattered around the hallways and I believe you can get some snacks too. A large floor in front of the stage and a second area up a set of stairs is all General Admission.  They're also theater-like seats located towards the back of the location, if standing is not your thing.  They're is VIP seating on both sides as well, if you can get them, or bribe the bouncer.   From RuPaul to King Diamond, this place hosts them all.  .
