We saw Elvis Costello here earlier this month and it was fantastic. Seating was all assigned and even though we were very near the back, we could see just fine. Sound was great. Alcohol is served here as well and that's a bonus! Finally, this...More

Rialto Theatre has the perfect layout for watching a band like Lord Huron. The floor inclines from front of the stage to the back which makes it perfect for general admission because you can see the stage over the head of the person in front...More

I went to see a DJ named Feed Me back in September here. While I don't much care for the music I was seeing, the sound with this type of act was still spectacular. This place has character that lacks in many venues these days....More
