Fodor's Review

Deceptively good-sized, the North Star lights up the Art Museum neighborhood with a diverse and satisfying line-up of local and nationally touring bands, tending toward the artistic and alternative side of the ledger; past gigs included Shonen Knife, The Libertines, and (back in the day) Luna.
