Rain! terrible for this type of venue. There is also a 10:00 PM noise abatement regulation, so paid $250 to see Alison Krauss for 45 min. soaking wet. This might be a good venue in the middle of summer with an artist that values their...More

I love this venue because it's not to big, the crowd is usually easy going, the vibe is relaxed, the shows are fun! There are plenty of places to eat & drink before and after.

Even with rain this was an amazing place to see Radiohead. Bring a pillow to sit on. Even with long lines to enter we still got an excellent seat. Can't wait to come back!

A Berkeley gem. I love that it's outdoors, too. There's nothing like a great show on a beautiful evening at the Greek. And Cheapskate Hill is awesome for viewing and listening to shows that you can't get into for whatever reasons. An excellent mix of...More
