I see what I can think of here in Michigan:

Grand Rapids
The Intersection: 1200 capacity. Great sound and nice floor area with bar seats towards the back. Also a front lounge for smaller acts

The Orbit Room: 1600 capacity. The biggest non areana venue in West Michigan. Amazing sound but feels like a sauna. balcony adds to capacity.

Deltaplex: 6,200+ Lots of national acts

Van Andel Arena: 13,000+ Where the majority of big national acts play.

Lansing:
The Loft: 400. Small intimate venue

MT. Pleasant:

Soaring Eagle Casino concert hall: 3,155 Occasional national acts.

Battle Creek:
Kellogg Arena: ???? capacity. Smaller arena. Good number of national acts

Clarkston:
DTE Energy Music Theater: 15,000+ Outdoor amphitheater with great sound. Lots of national acts

Pontiac:
Crofoot ballroom: 1,100 Great sound with a smaller floor and balcony. 3 venues here

Pikeroom: 250 Smaller acts play here. 2nd story of crofoot venue

Eagle Theater: 600 midsize smaller venue connected directly to the crofoot

Phoenix Center: 6000 Smaller amphitheater

Detroit:
Royal Oak Music Theater: 1700. Larger theater music venue with great sound and sight lines

Saint Andrew's Hall: 800+ Smaller theater

The Fillmore: 2,200 Larger indoor venue right next to the fox theater across from ford field/comerica park

Fox Theater: 5,000 one of the most famous venues in Detroit right next to the fillmore and across from ford field/comerica park

(there's more like the arenas in Detroit but I'm out of time right now)

i think it's 1000, maybe less. but i think it's mainly a standing room. there's a bar in there too which probably has seats
