    Steve of Whitewater Pass talks about his favorite music venues in Philadelphia. Think he's missing some? Then tweet us your favorites @Phillyfunguide.

    Philly’s newest live entertainment venue is also one of its coolest. Open as of October 1st, the Fillmore Philadelphia was built from a former munitions plant just north of Center City in Kensington. Along with its original brick walls, steel rafter beams, and chimney, this new venue features vintage poster art from legendary Fillmore music halls across the U.S. Head here to experience acts like Hall and Oates (who played on their opening night), Questlove, Joe Walsh, and more.

    I have had the pleausure of performing in the space on the main stage and I absolutely love it!  An amazing room with great acoustics to showcase any type of music that rolls through Philadelphia.  Check out your favoirte touring band or experience some brand new music from the city!  World Cafe Live also has 2 full bars, a restaraunt and an upsstairs stage that hosts weekly jam sessions, jazz open mics and much, much more.  If you live in the Wilmington area, be sure to check out World Cafe Live at the Queen!

    The Trocadero Theatre, located in the heart of Center City, has been a main hub to see both touring and local bands perform since the 1970’s (Originally established in 1870 as the Arch Street Opera House.) Lots of independent and national touring acts frequent the Troc stage, featuring mostly rock, punk, and experimental forms of new music. Not only can you see a live music show at the Troc, but on one Monday of every month, this space is turned into a movie theater!  Movie Mondays is a fan favorite event in  Philly and for only $3 you catch up on all the classic movies that you have yet to see, or current movies that you missed seeing in the theatre.Throughout the course of the year, the Trocadero Theater also hosts fun themed concerts from the 1970’s-1990’s. 

    The Mann Center is my absolute favorite venue to see a show in Philly.You can just feel the history as you walk through the entrance covered by massive trees; hear the music playing in the distance as you grab a craft brew. Sit down in one of the 1,000 seats, or bring a blanket and kick back on the Lawn.The Mann offers all kinds of musical experiences ranging from classic rock shows to being the summer home for the Philadelphia Orchestra performing the music from The Harry Potter film series. The Mann Center for the Performing Arts’ Education & Community Engagement program is the region’s largest free education program, serving over 50,000 young people annually. The Mann’s annual Young People’s Concert Series features five free main stage performances making high-quality and culturally diverse performing arts programs accessible to children in the Philadelphia region.
