This place is great. The indie night on Fridays is a favorite of mine. The beers/drinks are cheap, and you get very close to the bands. Sometimes the acoustics aren't the best, but it's a small club.

Boston proper has long been missing a mid sized music venue. Forget the other side of the river. The sound is amazing and the caliber of bands is outstanding (I think its time for Citysearch to rethink their description).

Long live Great Scott.

I like what this place has become. What used to be a big stinky frat house has been turned into a consistant supplier of locan and national acts. I has a pretty good layout for live music and still retains some spots for just standing around. The outside patio style area is kinda cool in that local rockstars can hang out and have a few pops in the natural sunlight. Amazing. the covers aren't too severe and the bevs are reasonable. Depending on the house DJ you can hear a pretty vast array of tunes from the PA. Great way to support your local wannabies and up-and-commings. get out and see some fresh band today.

Pros: almost a winner every night

Cons: tough to park

Not sure who claimed that Wednesday nights are "ladies night" or that the place is packed, but it definitely is not. It seems like a fun place to go on the weekends, the bar tenders are AMAZING and the bouncers look like they are about 12. But you will find every type of people from crazy college girls to scruffy men reading books at the end of the bar ;-)

Pros: Bartenders, diverse crowd

I waltzed into Great Scott one Thursday and was greeted by the noise of an untalented, Eminem-worshipping DJ. He was terrible. Also, the place was empty. Coincidence? I think not. Usually, this place rocks. But watch out for DJ WHO?!
