Saw Raven and Dead by Wednesday here recently. The sound was really good, and the room was a great fit... as every spot in the room had a great view of the stage. Staff were friendly, and the place ...had a great rock club vibe. Admission prices and beer prices were a great value (particularly in comparison to the Chicago clubs), and even parking wasn't out of line with a few pay lots less than 2 blocks from the venue, in case you're not lucky enough to score street parking. I look forward to coming back when the next great show comes to town. Thank you for a great time. See More

The greatest bar in the world! Fantastic staff, great crowd, great building history, drinks ruled, music was fantastic, and I got a special ghost tour by the awesome owner himself! Cheers!

As a native of Wisconsin, the Frequency in Madison is the BEST all around music venue for music, new friends, old-friends from college to get-together, and
great staff....
Booking the venue is an oppo...rtunity "undeniable"!

For such a small venue, it sure packs in a atmosphere. The sound great and easy in and out. I will be back.

Been to the Frequency for a few shows, latest was Shamyaza, Amberstein and Cold Black River. Must say, was at The Red Zone for a show recently and looking at previous reviews, if you don't care about ...the experience you get at a decent show in a decent bar, go to the Red Zone. Appreciate the fact that I can walk into a "bar" like The Frequency and actually feel safe and welcomed. Don't need to worry about being assulted or robbed or drugged. Was constantly looking over my shoulder at other "bars" unlike here! The music is excellent and appealing to just about everyone. Must say Shamyaza wasn't my cup of tea, but was still enjoyable! Keep up the excellent job and great music See More

Shows start WAY too early and are over WAY to quick. Dead Boys reunion done before 11pm...
Pretty weak.

Great concert venue, and they have a wide selection of non-IPA beer! A rarity in Madison!

I've been to thousands of gigs. But, when a place/a hall/a bar/a tavern/ a theater refuses to honor a bands guestlist, then there's a huge problem. To all bands playing Jammon Fest, Grateful Friends... Fest, Grateful Garcia Gathering, or Dancing With the Dead, this place isn't worth it. Especially when a band drives all the way up from near the Chicago area, and only gets 40 minutes playing time... Paying dues is apart of a bands path, to play wherever they can get a gig. But don't short change yourself with this place, and if your band decides to play this place, please don't invite me. I appreciate the invite though. (~);} See More

The best small/medium sized venue in Madison! Excellent bar staff, very comfortable, homie atmosphere. You won't walk away from the Frequency without wanting to go back.

Saw Matt Hires last night and I have to say it was great! The acoustics were spot on and they sounded crisp! Cheap beers and good looking pizzas are a bonus.

The Frequency is an unsung hero of the Madison music scene. Great room, great sound. And it's haunted, so that's a plus.

You are responsible for your own community. Having a venue to display your craft is a privilege. When someone repeatedly acts irresponsibly in a communal setting, then that ruins the privilege for eve...rybody. Welcome to life. See More
