Formerly the Paradise Theater and locally known as "The Dise," the Paradise Rock Club is an intimate bar and live music venue located in Boston's Brookline neighborhood next door to the Boston University BU campus. Since opening on September 22, 1977, the venue has hosted an array of concerts and small music festivals in all genres of music, including funk, rock, hip-hop, alternative and country. The club also accommodates non-music events like stand-up comedy. Acts performing at The Dise in the past include REM, Nitzer Ebb and Lucinda Williams. The facility underwent major renovations in 2010, giving patrons an even broader view of the stage. Reserve your favorite seats for all Paradise Rock Club events at StubHub.
