Rolling Stone’s Best Music Rooms In The U.S.


Tipitina’s Uptown New Orleans LA

A while ago I reported on Rolling Stone’s best music clubs in The U.S. as voted by a panel of music performers and industry representatives.  Those venues had a capacity of less than 1,000.  Now the magazine has published a second instalment (in a four-part series), this time looking at slightly larger venues – large clubs and theaters, which makes for interesting reading.
