We travelled to Portland to see the new years show by Brandi Carlile who always seems to pick cool venues and this is no exception. My biggest complaint is that the stage is too low, and while I'm 5'11" and didnt really have too much of a problem, my wife is 5'4" and couldnt see the stage for the majority... 更多
A group of us from several different states decided to get together for the Brandi Carlisle concert on New Year's Eve at the Crystal Ballroom. General admission tickets were all that were available at about $90 a piece. Not a problem, or so we thought. Doors were to open at 8 PM, we were told. Of course, Dec 31st in... 更多

There are a few caveats though. 1) Parking downtown is a nightmare. My wife and I solved this by coming down 90 minutes before doors opened to pick up a street parking... 更多

The venue is cool for a concert but it's best to get in early and pick your place and it's pretty much a standing venue. It's an old building and you definitely feel the... 更多
Saw James Bay here, and it was great to get early admit by eating there. However, the acoustics were horrible inside. We were up in the first row of the balcony and it was so noisy from crowd noise below that we could hardly hear or enjoy the music. We couldn't hear anything he said. It was also very far... 更多
