I saw one of my favorite singers of all time. I enjoyed the concert once I was there. Buying tickets was a little confusing. My cousin and I were truly willing to pay for premium seats, but there was no clear way to do that....More

This review is for the Showbox SoDo - It's a great concert venue if you're willing to stand. They do have seating, but it's limited & will cost you more. I love the lower ticket prices and less crowds! Staff was friendly, sound was great....More

The Showbox is my favorite music venue in Seattle. The half circle setup and elevated bar areas give this place great acoustics and clear sightlines to the performers from every angle.

The Showbox on 1st Avenue is my absolute favorite small venue in Seattle! It's a pretty big space, and there's only a little bit of seating so they can get a lot of people in there. There are bars all the way around the venue...More

Went to see this legendary reggae artist at Showbox on my first ever day in Seattle. The doormen seemed a bit harsh at first but then again it is their job. Good strong drinks, friendly bartenders and nice people. A good venue and an interesting...More
