“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The Recher used to be a fun place with local bands, good crowds, and decent drinks. Then they had a problem (Not their fault from what I read) that involved police and arrests in the street outside The Recher. It's a shame, we need more places where local bands can get their start

“Sorry, but the Recher Theatre is closing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

According to the latest news around Towson, the Recher Theatre will no longer be a local band venue and is being closed. It is being combined with The Rec Room next door into one large coctail lounge. A new name for the combined operation has not yet been released that I know of.

“Going downhill...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is not a bad venue. I've attended many concerts here, some very good names in music. However, the demographic is shifting, as the concerts get crappier and they are really starting to try for the college bar scene from Towson kids. Perhaps a good financial choice, but not a good aesthetic decision.
Still good for local concerts.
Have seen the likes of mewithoutYou, Manchester Orchestra, Flobots, couple hardcore shows, etc.

“Concert venue in the heart of Towson, MD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Used to be a cinema when I was a kid! For a small hall, they bring some great entertainers, and it's away from the city, actually a fun suburban area. Sells wine and beer. Standing only is the set up, which can be tedious by night's end, but the crowd gets really fired up. Can check your coats for a small fee. Crowd is eclectic...I've seen small kids with parents, teens, midlifers, etc. Nice, safe area to enjoy a concert.
