Description [edit]
There's nothing incredibly sexy about Shank Hall. It's not the biggest music venue in the city (but its capacity of 300 is great for that up-close and personal concert feeling), but it is one of the best places to see a show. No bright lights and glitter on the outside of this place, but Shank Hall always pulls in great national acts, as well as Milwaukee regulars like Pat McCurdy and Paul Cebar.
