Best Rock Club - 2012
7th St. Entry
While First Avenue's more spacious Mainroom next door gets most of the acclaim and accolades, the intimate Entry remains the perfect place to see a band before they break big. Ticket prices are usually pretty cheap, the sight lines are perfect, the sound is typically flawless, and fans are regularly able to connect in a personal way with the impressive legion of bands that continues to grace the club's tiny stage. Whether you're catching a young act on the rise or a veteran group that still prefer to keep their shows small, the Entry has memorably hosted them all within its dark, cozy confines. Whatever type of music you're into, the Entry has you covered, as the venue's diverse concert calendar is packed with highly affordable shows spanning all types of genres nearly every night of the week.
