Boston Venue Guide: Paradise Rock Club

The Paradise Rock Club sits adjacent to the Paradise Lounge on Commonwealth Ave. in Boston. It plays host to hundreds of bands throughout the year, including many of the biggest new and up-and-coming acts in the industry.

The club was recently renovated in August 2010 to make room for more fans to get in for shows. That increased capacity has improved both the quantity and quality of shows at the venue, making it a highly recommended destination for great new artists at relatively affordable ticket prices. You can see a complete list of upcoming shows at the Paradise at their official website.
