Our annual readers survey has always asked about favorite bands, but not until this year have we asked about favorite music venues to see both local and national music acts. Promowest Productions dominated the list with three of their four locally owned and operated venues: The Basement, The Newport, and at the top of the list, The LC Pavilion.

“With an indoor stage, an outdoor amphitheater and the controversial yet increasingly necessary festival setting, it’s not difficult to understand why the LC tops this list,” says CU Concert Photographer Matt Ellis. “The yearly home for CD102.5’s always sold-out 102.5 day and Summerfest shows, the LC is a hugely popular venue in town for any touring band to play and the perfect place to sit back on the lawn and enjoy a Summer evening of music.”

Some of the LC’s other concert highlights from 2013 include The Avett BrothersThe National (pictured up top), The xx, The Silversun Pickups, Passion Pit, O.A.R., The Dropkick Murphys, the Summerland Tour and more.
