Great hole in the wall (quite literally!) bar! Make sure you watch Threeday Threshold and Kier Byrnes rock out!

Great, cozy venue. Eddie Vedder has been known to play there! So convenient, across the street from Porter Square on the red line. Also, you can get great food from next door at Christopher's (awesome nachos!!).

There are a lot of great music venues on this list, but Toad is tight. Really small room that keeps you close to the band. Steps for the Porter Sq. T station, and lots of parking across the street.
