Consequence wants to honor the local venues, gathering places, and institutions across the country that build community and allow culture to thrive. That’s why we’re launching Hometowns of Consequence, a fan-led initiative highlighting America’s best music venues.

Nominate your favorite local venue (2,000-cap or less). Check your inbox for a verification email and follow the instructions to make sure your nomination is registered.

Then, use the sharing info in the email to tell your friends to support your venue or shine a spotlight on their own favorite places to see live music. Later this year, we’ll announce four finalists in each of the five regions – Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and West, – so make sure to come back and cast your final vote!
