The Crystal's Top 50

A group of McMenamins staff and fans got together to select what they think are the top fifty songs ever played live in the Crystal Ballroom, including those by artists such as James Brown, The Flaming Lips, Blondie, The White Stripes, Arcade Fire, The Avett Brothers and many, many others.

Original artwork by 20 local artists based on these songs performed at the Crystal Ballroom over the past 97 years will adorned each of the 51 hotel rooms, hallways, doors, light boxes and more. 

Have a look at our gallery to see these paintings inspired by the music and bands...
