Phoenix New Times' Description

Punk and hardcore shows have returned to downtown Mesa, as local indie concert promoter Mantooth Group has resurrected the old Nile Basement and transformed it into The Underground. There's an old school spirit to the place, as dozens of posters and fliers from Phoenix shows from the last two decades have been pasted up around the subterranean venue. Huge graf art-style murals painted by Valley tattoo artists also adorn the walls and behind the stage. Just like it did back during its glory days -- when bands such as Rise Against, AFI, and Tsunami Bomb performed here -- the spot hosts a killer mix of both nationally known and locally grown bands.

Merchant's Description

Now under the management of the Mantooth Group, the new Nile Theater is shamelessly taking the Arizona music scene by storm.

Historically known for its voracious appetite for memorable hardcore, punk, metal, and rock shows, the "World Famous" Nile Theater is streaming precious life-blood into the desert one incredibly kick-ass show at a time.

    one of the most legendary venues in az. bands such as blink 182, something corporate, etc... have played @ this venue. great sound and floor size. stage just short enough for an intimate setting.

    Lol of you're complaining about how hot its gets inside and that you feel like fainting. That shirt happens no matter where you go.

    worst venue I have ever been to, acoustics suck and ventilation is terrible.

  • Phoenix New Times on 03/04/13

    The Underground hosts the most hard rock acts, & can get so humid with the pulse of dueling guitars and growls, it's a wonder the graffiti scrawled across the concrete walls hasn't melted off by now.

    Stand on stage left! It's close to the stage and near where the bands chill.
