Cool bands do come to Vermont (some even start up here), and they seem to enjoy playing at this outwardly nondescript, inwardly intimate venue in South Burlington. In 2004, the former movie theater morphed into three separate spaces kitted out with recycled white columns from nearby Norwich University, bowling-alley bar tops, and state-of-the-art acoustics. Now, it draws such artists as Rilo Kiley, the Black Crowes, Sharon Jones, and the Green Mountains' own Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Arrive during the opening band to grab some good pub food (the kitchen is generally open until shows end) and a beer from one of three bars. Big artists sell out early, but otherwise tickets are usually available the day of the show. The only drawback? It's two miles from downtown Burlington—a bit too far to walk in the winter.
