I went this past December to see Hawthorne Heights, it was great, had a blast, saw some great bands play, I loved it. And its an okay place for a minor... no alcohol...

Pros: its cool, youmeet new people, bands

Cons: its small! (still cool!)

Great place to let the teenagers try out their bands.
They have to encourage their friends to buy tickets so they usually get a group of their peers.
Always alot of parents in the parking lot at the end of the night picking up their kids, so this shows other parents share my sentiment

Good fun environment, no liquor and fun crowd. Chance to see heavy metal band Happy Hanna and their lead guitarist fire up the audience. We'll have to pay a lot more to see this band soon. Lots of other fresh sounds too.
Easy to get to on Lincoln west of the 5 and plenty of other clubs nearby to visit afterwards.

I used to frequent this venue in high school, when I could catch three bands a night and recognize most of the members as my peers. That should say it all. Chain Reaction is high schoolers toying with the idea of rock n' roll and bands whose musical taste buds never matured past pubescence. The sound mix typically does nothing to cover up sour notes and mumbled punk lyrics.

Small place to see a show and concert prices are pretty cheap often times under $10. For the shows I've been to, I've been able to buy tickets at the door so I avoid paying the hefty TicketBastard fees. It's located in a strip mall. Parking oftentimes can be full in the lot, but I've been able to park on the street in front of the car dealership. Shows there can be really quite literally hot . I don't think there's an A/C so you and the band will be quite sweaty after a show.

A nice place because it's rather small, and the rules are generally too strict for a "punk rock" venue. Absolutely no ins and outs, no backpacks and no stagediving. The staff is sometimes quite rude compared to other venues and the parking is horrible. I guess management isn't totally to blame, as chain reaction tends to draw an often young and rude crowd which sometimes makes shows somewhat unbearable. There have been many decent shows in the past few years, but ticket prices are mainly too high compared to places like koos and the smell.

i LOVE chain reaction. it's almost like a second home to me. it's a really small club so you can get as close to the bands as you want and the management and security are awesome people... although if you upset them you may see a side that not many have seen. just be sure not to fight or get too rowdy inside and you'll be okay. the one obvious flaw of this venue is the parking situation. if you can, try to carpool, as there are not a lot of parking spaces. other than that, chain reaction will always be at the top of lists of favorite places to see bands.

This all-ages club has become one the hottest venues to catch up-and-coming and local Orange County bands.
