Mahalls is a great place not only for bowling but concerts too. They are hosting people like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Frights, and Leanna Firestone.

This creates a sense of intimacy and connection between the artists and the audience which is harder to find at larger venues. The venue is decorated with vintage bowling memorabilia, which creates a fun quirky vibe. There is also a full bar and restaurant on site, so the concert-goers can grab a drink or a bite to eat before or after the show. Tickets are cheap and the music is always great! If you are interested in buying tickets for any of these shows you are able to purchase tickets at Some of the concerts however require you to be 18 years of age.
