  • Outside St. Andrew's Hall
Upstairs from the Shelter is the venerable Detroit institution known as St. Andrew's Hall, which has played host to just about every conceivable punk, hard-core, new wave, no wave, alternative and anything in between band that's come down the new music pike since 1980. With a capacity of 1,000, and a balcony ringing the upstairs level of the rectangular-shaped room, the venue offers an opportunity for sight lines from every angle. Friday and Saturday nights offer up three floors of fun, with a potpourri of DJs' and live acts' sounds permeating from the subterranean-level Shelter up to the chandeliered Burns Room.
