We went to see Nick Thule and the other dude that talked way to long about a sandwich. Great venue with fair drink prices. Cool vibe reminiscent of clubs in Philly. Nice job and good hustle.

Motorco is great for providing good entertainment at unbelievably reasonable prices. We went last night to see Janiva Magness. She was amazing. Her opening band, Teacup Gin left a lot to be desired though. All in all a fun night!

We've been to Motorco a few times in the past for a drink or food at its food window, Parts and Labor, but recently attended our first event in the performance hall. It was a "story slam" put on by The Monti and was incredibly...More

Motorco is a small space but perfect for the right kind of performance. The main floor fits about 200+ people standing comfortably. There are bleacher-style seats in a section on stage right for another 50 or so people. The performer we were there to hear...More
