There are many factors that go into creating an amazing live music performance. From hours of practice to a well-stocked bar and kitchen, each aspect plays an important role in making it special. One aspect that ties everything together is the venue. Seeing live music at the perfect venue can really create a magical experience. Here are four of our favorites from around the US.
