The Big Red is... well, it is the Big Red. It has its own vibe and atmosphere. One that reflects the joys of music, without pushing this too much. It's both relaxed and intimate, even though the place is huge. And it's also built a deserved reputation for giving young bands the chance to perform live. And while many other places do something similar, what makes it really work here is that people are genuinely enthusiastic about seeing these bands, even if they've never heard of them before!
"There's a loyalty to the Big Red that's born out of a passion for it. Why? Because it encourages having a good time all of the time.
