The mysterious R5 production team brings amazing punk, indie, and hardcore shows to Philadelphia. The tickets are cheap, and the venues are awesome. Check out their website for event listings. But be careful, as there are so many good shows that you might have to decide between two or three on any given night.
The Troc features great acts from punk to rock. They also have cheap movie nights. Check out their site for more info.
Theatre of the Living Arts
Much like the Troc, the TLA features a variety of music styles and tickets rarely going above $30. Upcoming events can be found on their site.
The Mann Center
The Mann Center is Philly’s premiere outdoor concert venue. Lots of cool bands play here during the Summer. Check out their site for this year’s events.
