Phoenix New Times' Description

Located just north of Tempe Town Lake near the southwest corner of Mill Avenue and Washington Street, the Marquee Theatre is an institution in the Valley's live music scene. With a capacity of roughly 1,000, it's just big enough that it is required to separate the underagers from the drinkers, which is great for parents attending a show with their kids or groups of young adults who fall on either side of the legal drinking age. At the same time, the theater is intimate enough so that pretty much any location in the house offers a great view of the stage. A large bar in the concourse area is usually pretty busy, but a smaller bar on the concert floor adjacent to the stage ensures that you can have a drink without missing a note. The sound system is top-notch, which is a good thing considering the blockbuster acts that Marquee regularly hosts. Such prominent national acts as A Perfect Circle, Sonic Youth, Social Distortion, and the Black Keys have performed there, as well as a number of up-and-coming Valley bands who get a chance to shine on the big stage during frequent local showcases.

    My favorite venue to rock out with my favorite bands. Reasonable ticket and drink prices too. Security can be a bit over zealous at times, picking more on the stoners instead of the aggressive jerks in the mosh pits....but you take the good with the bad. Intimate shows at a great price with the most awesome bands of today or recent past. There are industrial fans set up... More >>

    Especially for a concert venue, where one expects to shell out a lot of dough for drinks, these are cheap. $4 rum and diet? Can't go wrong with that. The heavy pours make any lush satisfied.

    This place is medium and somewhat intimate, and your feet will stick to the floor, but you cannot beat the prices. They're getting some great acts lately! I have recently been for 10 years... More >>
