Warehouse Live has about a million things going for it. Let's start with the obvious: the booze is cheap, and you have at least six places to get your liquid fix. The sound system is awesome, as are the venue's sight lines, in both the main ballroom and the smaller studio setting. Even cooler is the air conditioning. True, rock and roll is meant to draw sweat and stank, but some nights you just want to literally chill out and see a band without buying stock in Right Guard. The venue just added a quiet bar inside the building for when you feel like taking a break in between bands to get away from the throngs in the other rooms.

Saw my favorite band Keane here. The place was nice, they always have great entertainment, and if you get there early enough you can get right up front close enough to touch one of the entertainers if they reach out. The drink prices were average, not cheap but not too bad. Sound was good, restrooms were good, and they seem pretty diverse in the types of bands they have there. I'd go again if a band/singer I liked was playing there.
Very tough category to call this year — if you hadn't noticed, Houston has been getting some grade-A road shows lately — but Warehouse Live gets the nod for its versatility (i.e., the 300-capacity studio and 1,500-capacity ballroom), world-class sound system and the fact that more often than not its shows sell out, no matter if the evening's entertainment is Spoon and the New Pornographers, Café Tacuba, Ghostland Observatory or the one and only Snoop Dogg. It's clear that even as Houston's concert market grows as congested as the 59/610 interchange at rush hour, the folks at the Messina Group have no trouble bringing top-drawer acts from all genres to their show palace on St. Emanuel.
Warehouse Live is hardly Houston's "best hip-hop club" per se -- legions of emo and hardcore bands would beg to differ -- as much as it is simply the city's place to see hip-hop. However, it does have a few features that make it especially well-suited for hosting a rap show: Big and small rooms for hosting either headliners or up-and-comers; a sound system that keeps the lyrics audible above the floor-rattling bass; and a no-nonsense security staff that won't hesitate to kick out...

Canned Acoustica didn't start out as a concert series. Photographer and local music junkie Mark C. Austin planned last November's inaugural Acoustica as a way to see several of his favorite artists in the same place and help out the Houston Food Bank for the holidays. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that several acts who didn't play begged him to do another one; there have since been three more, with May's installment collecting donations for the Japanese Red Cross Society.

In our minds, Warehouse Live is the best venue for mid-level acts visiting Houston. Now that the Meridian or whatever it is called has dried up, live music is nearly dead in East Downtown, save the random warehouse party. Luckily we still have this venue up and running, with its two stages and separate lounge space. It's not a bad place to begin or end your night, either, with a wine bar across the street and Lucky's Pub next door for pre- or aftershow grub going until right before last... More »

Imagine Corinne Bailey Rae in an intimate setting, with just you and 300 of your closest friends. Maybe you'd prefer Stephen Marley or James Hunter. From neo-soul up-and-comers to blues legends, everyone stops by Warehouse Live. The club, a converted 1920s warehouse, has made its reputation by having a diverse lineup in a low-key, but comfortable setting. The two rooms, the ballroom and smaller studio, are cozy enough that everyone has a close-up view but large enough to hold a good-size... More »
When Warehouse Live opened earlier this year, we were skeptical. Live music in a midsize club usually means shitty sound, long bar lines, smokiness and an aesthetic that can only be described as filthy. But after dozens of shows, we can think of just one word to describe the club: perfect. From Bun B to Arctic Monkeys and DJ Diplo, Warehouse Live has established itself as the best club in town and the place where top acts play. With two rooms -- one that holds 1,200 people and another a... More »
