The LC is Columbus is really the best. Glad to see it on there. Throw in the Newport, The Basement, A&R, and Skully's too. Columbus really has a great music scene.

Not a single Philly venue on the list? Kind of strange.

No way Irving Plaza is the most popular music venue in NYC, at least not any more. Bowery Ballroom and Webster Hall have definitely eclipsed IP.

It's based on attendance so I ge it. Live Nation, with their artist tie-ins, is going to back their own venues.

Was hoping First Avenue in Minneapolis would be on that list. Prince made the club legendary with Purple Rain, and it's such a cool place!

Weird that Starland Ballroom isn't on there. I know pre-Sandy it was one of the most attended concert clubs in the world.

Ha I figured the 930 would be on there. I didn't realize how lucky I was to have that as my local venue until the last few years. So many bands mention how special that place is but you kind of figure it's just BS they say to every city, but I've learned that's not the case.

Yeah, I was confused about this too.

Shocked not to see Chain Reaction either.
