Wow! What a venue. As you enter the Masonic, beautiful architecture surrounds you, and the hustle and bustle of folks getting drinks and preparing to find their seats livens up the foyer. By the title of my review, you now know that there is not...More

First concert at The Masonic was Erasure. Great venue, good seats no matter what. Lots of choices for beverages and easy access from anywhere in town. Will definitely keep an eye out for more shows

architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

Hi, When I went last month to see a concert, the artist, as with most artists these days, will usually promote their music and CD's. After the concert, in the lobby, you'll see the artist.
