On March 11, 2020, Oregon's Governor Kate Brown instituted a ban on gatherings of over 250 people in the state of Oregon. The ban is slated to last for four weeks but could be extended.

In the immediate term we have suspended sales for all shows at the Crystal Ballroom into the second week of April, and are exploring the possibility of rescheduling each show so ticket holders have the option of simply applying their current tickets to the rescheduled date. Ticketholders will be emailed as shows are either cancelled or rescheduled, and we will also post show information on our website (www.crystalballroompdx.com) and social media platforms.

All ticketholders have the option of requesting refunds at point of purchase or by emailing refunds@etix.com.

We at the Crystal Ballroom are grateful for the patronage of our amazing music community, and look forward to once again providing you all with a full schedule of shows. Until that day, please protect yourself and those around you by following all the CDC and state guidelines!

 

The Murder Capital

Post-punk

The Murder Capital

If you have ever seen The Murder Capital live then what will strike you most about the experience is not the heaviness, the bleakness or the rage you might expect, but witnessing a most extreme vision of tenderness. Their debut album When I Have Fears, recorded with Flood (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, New Order etc.), embodies this tenderness; it is a purple bruise on the hard knee of the so-called post-punk resurgence.

You might be surprised to know that the debut album from that dark, twisted Dublin quintet (comprising of James McGovern, Gabriel Paschal Blake, Diarmuid Brennan, Damien Tuit and Cathal Roper) is, in all its boyish innocence and vulnerability, a coming of age album. “When you get to your teens you begin to feel like you’re playing catch up with your inner child. You have to dismantle all the shit that was put into your parents brains and given to you.” Something as small as questioning why at six years old your hands were clasped in prayer, becomes a quiet revolution.

The suicide of a close friend led not only to the birth of the band’s name but to the philosophy of the entire album, “every single one of those lyrics relates back in some way to his death.” Discovering the work of photographer Francesca Woodman, was also a significant touch point. “The biggest impression it left was relating to the loneliness of her photos. That sense of being completely on your own, but also taking solace in the beauty of the work as well.”

About Lola's Room

The music has stopped – for now. All McMenamins, except 23rd Ave Bottle Shop, are temporarily closed. We’ll be ready for you with beer, wine and burgers when this is over. Until then, stay safe.

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom and/or Lola's Room Passport Stamps?

A Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room & Crystal Brewery Tour occurs daily at 2 p.m. - meet at Ringlers Pub (street level below the Crystal Ballroom.) The tour takes about half an hour to complete. Any questions may be directed to the Crystal box office, 503-225-0047.

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp. Please note that if you’re attending an event in the Crystal Ballroom, you will need to attend a separate event in Lola’s Room to get the Lola’s stamp and vice versa. Stamps are always exclusively available in their own venue. 
 
Please note: Due to private events, concert setup needs and brewers’ schedules, not all spaces are guaranteed to be available to tour daily, but our staff will give it our best shot and show you the spaces that we can.
