Fodor's Review

Come here to see the latest local bands as well as indie stars such as Neko Case, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, and the Pizza Underground. Or check out some edgy burlesque and comedy. There's also plenty of ironic dueling-DJ action—think The Cure vs. The Smiths. The post-punk crowd whiles away the time in the Red Room, a side bar with pool tables, an eclectic jukebox, and no cover charge. The club also is home to Food for Thought, a legendary vegetarian café.
