Arguably Portland's most iconic concert venue, Crystal Ballroom is at least the city's most widely known music hall. Opened in 1914, its old-school opulence is still intact, and its spring-loaded dance floor is legendary. It's hard to think of a more unique spot to catch the wide array of midlevel touring bands the venue books.
