The underground rock scene lives here. The Basement features both national and
local bands on the rise, cause let's face it, you gotta start somewhere.
Fueled by the desire to become the next rock gods, The Basement offers a room
for bands to fine tune their craft while making a name for themselves.
The Basement hosts a wide variety of musicians and provides a stepping-stone
for bands on the rise looking to graduate to the levels of the Newport and then to THE LC.
The Basement is located next to THE LC in
downtown Columbus' Arena District. The Basement offers the next big band a
chance to create an underground buzz and give their musical careers a jump start.
From the hard hitting sound system to the battered old couches, The Basement
truly is a one of a kind experience. It may be new to you, but once youâ€˜re here,
you'll swear you've been here before.
