It'd be pretty much impossible to list all of the venues for California in one post, especially since I have no real clue about any venue I didn't post here, haha. I figured I could help out with some Southern California venues, divided up by city. Hopefully it'll help out!

Thanks for the info! I was looking up current/recent tours of bands I like and saw a few I definitely would've attended hitting up that Aladdin Jr's place. Not easy to find info online about it haha

No problem, glad to help! Aladdin is a little bit elusive. When I was looking on last.fm earlier, it sounds like I Call Fives is doing a stop there, so maybe they do have more touring bands than I first thought. I'd love to check out a show there to get more info.

Reggie's Rock CLub - 400 Capacity, no barricade, terrible, terrible location (shady as fuck), terrible sound, terrible place to see shows, luckily i have only been there once, merch is terrible, really not much positive things to say about the place, doesnt attract many tours anywway Upcoming Shows - Chiddy Bang, Anti-Flag

Gotta say that I disagree with you about Reggie's. I saw Nasum there back in May and it was a hell of a place to see a metal show. Perfect capacity, awesome crowd. Merch was solid. The only flaw was the layout of the place with the way it funnels you out, but as far as the concert space, it was awesome.

Kobo (Columbus)
Ace of Cups (Columbus) - love this place. Saw Purity Ring here. Basically all shows here end after midnight.
Scarlet and Grey Cafe (Columbus) - pretty much just local bands play here.
The Bluestone (Columbus) - old church converted to a bar/venue. Occasional national acts. 400ish capacity.
A&R Music Bar (Columbus) - Upstairs in the same building as The Basement. I prefer this place but it doesnt get as many tours. For some reason Three Days Grace was booked to play here (wtf?)
The Underground (Cincinnati)
The 86 Club (Cincinnati)
20th Century Theatre (Cincinnati)
