In the early 1900's, the Vic was the Victoria Theatre, a five-story vaudeville house. These days, the intimate venue (it holds up to 1,400) is looking its age, but the Italian marble of the lobby floor and staircases still impresses, and the original wall sculptures of plants, vines, and female faces have been restored. More importantly, the acoustics are as good as ever, and it remains one of the city's best places to catch hot local acts and national performers from David Bowie to Nanci Griffith. When live shows aren't scheduled, the venue transforms into a movie theater for its popular "Brew and View" nights, when second-run and cult classic films are screened, and the well-lubricated crowd can be quite talky.
