Roseland

Formerly known as the Starry Night in the 1980s (until the owner murdered an employee in 1990), the Roseland Theater sits on downtown’s main thoroughfare, West Burnside. It’s been through a lot—when Prince played there the walls were painted purple, and according to legend, when Insane Clown Posse played there, Faygo started to leak from the downstairs ceiling. It’s a massive (1,400 capacity) black box theater with a ground floor and an upstairs balcony with an adjacent bar. Hip-hop, metal, punk, and plain old rock shows featuring bands like Modest Mouse subsume the Roseland and the smaller venue located within its confines, Peter’s Room, nearly every night of the week.
