The Fox is the 'must play' venue for any visiting name or any local artist on the way 'up'. Lines outside will let you know if the new acts are worthy! We often have been know to lurk out in the 'grey 'corner as we call it just to get a taste of what the youngsters are doing these days.Very... More

Small venue but this will allow the performance to be so different from what you are used to. It can be crowded and the layout is not the best. The sound system is great.Get caught smoking tobacco and you'll be thrown out!

Staff is mean and pushy - throwing people out left and right for "getting too into the music" or "being too drunk" when they were perfectly fine. Theater is hot, stuffy, and run-down. Probably wouldn't go back here unless the band wasn't playing anywhere else in a 50 mile radius (which rarely happens).

The sound here is great and if the show is not sod out is a great venue. Whenever bigger crowds converge the terrible layout is really exposed. On the sides everyone is standing sideways and the flow up and down stairs and aisles becomes treacherous especially when returning with a drink. The sound is the one redeeming quality to the...

I don't think the owners have updated a thing here in 20 years, but the sound is well worth it! Any artist should love to play here as well, any patron will get a great show- up close and personal.

I have seen so many great shows here. Great small venue to see a band! The staff are generally cool, and being across the street from the University means there is always a young, energetic crowd. If you are traveling through Boulder, make sure to check out the shows here, and at the Boulder theater. Both are great...

Not a bad "seat" in the venue, nice bar, It's small, and standing room only but great sound system. I have seen at least 20 shows here. It used to be a movie theater converted to a music venue...

This place has had quite the history or shows, and continues to get some big name acts for fairly cheap tickets. The venue itself is great, one of my favorites in the state, and the sound system is bumpin. Depending on the show you may get your mixed bag of dumb kids but thats expected at concerts from time to... More

You have to battle the college crowd but the venue is great for live music. Nothing fancy, great bands, great music.

We traveled to Boulder to see a favorite group, Groundation. Group was great, sound system great. There is a fairly large dance floor and seating on the edges and in back. The bars were in good locations so it wasn't a trek to get refreshment during the show.
