Fodor's Review

Inside a deconsecrated church, the Music Hall is the city's leading music venue. Most nights are devoted to concerts from groups such as local heroes Snow Patrol. Stand-up comedy nights are usually on Tuesdays—Patrick Kielty was a regular until he hit the big time in London. The Rab McCullough blues nights on Thursdays are popular, and one Friday each month Glamaramas are devoted to Queen, Bowie, and the like.
