We were at the Paradise for the 4 Guster shows in January 2017. The venue was completely sold out. The temperature was very comfortable, it was not too hard to find a good place to see the shows, the sound was great and the wait...More

Came here for Guster's 25th Anniversary four-night stand, and unfortunately that band has outgrown this compact venue. The club is small, with many sightlines obstructed by large support pillars on the main floor. And during these shows, a significant portion of floor space to one...More

Loved this place. So much better than House of Blues. I wish more artists could play there. Kinda stinks if you get stuck behind one of the poles, makes it pretty hard to see the stage, but there's always the balcony for a better view....More
