Charlie Levy’s stylish venue and nightspot has earned a rarified aura amongst both music fans and hipsters alike thanks to its many amenities geared towards concertgoers, as well as a posh atmosphere and a distinctive lineup of nightly shows. The Crescent’s main room boasts bleacher-like stadium seating along the back wall, which allows patrons a clear view of whatever nationally known art rock tastemakers, indie-folk troubadours, or Pitchfork favorites happen to be gracing the stage without ever having to jockey for position amidst a typically packed house. Not that there’s ever a bad seat to be had, as choice acoustics and a primo sound system ensure that every single note is crystal clear. Meanwhile, the Crescent’s urbane bar and lounge out front offers a candlelit milieu where scenesters, bon vivants, and urbanites quaff luxe libations, trade the latest gossip, or partake in free performances by local DJs and musicians.

Los Dias de la Crescent 2013 was defined by what's local -- the music, the beer, the food, the fans. This year's schedule looked like a tightened-up version of last year's format -- and it somehow fou... More »
Not many places are legendary from the second they open their doors. Charlie Levy's a genius and a four-star general when it comes to music promotion and show production. Most of the shows I want to see come here, and I learn about new artists from Stateside and this venue. Bravo!
It almost feels like cheating: Joel Marquard's spectacular Through and Through Gospel review performance on Saturday, July 14, was a local music triumph, uniting members of some of the Valley's best bands -- Gospel Claws, What Laura Says, Where Dead Voices Gather, Ladylike, Yellow Minute, and more -- for an eight-song set that felt almost as much like church (in a good way) as it did a club show. Not to mention that most of the aforementioned bands played beforehand, making the... More »
Charlie Levy apparently is a very patient man. After his famed Tempe music venue Nita's Hideaway closed in 2002, the local concert promoter waited almost a decade to open another place of his own. He was biding his time until a spot that was just the right size and in a perfect location became available. And when that day finally dawned last summer, he pounced, starting the process that brought the Crescent Ballroom to downtown Phoenix. Making up for lost time, Levy snatched up the location... More »
