Subterranean, known by Chicago regulars as ‘Sub-T’, is one of Chicago’s best music venues for underground hip-hop and indie rock artists. With an upstairs area that holds around 400 people, and a smaller room with a capacity of 100 down below, this music venue in Chicago offers several different levels of intimacy that allow small bands to showcase their talents to fans and new listeners alike.
In addition to regular shows, Subterranean is perhaps best known for its Thursday Night reggae shows. You may want to get there early as these shows tend to get packed quickly! The downstairs area, with a capacity of 100, also hosts the city’s best open-mic hip-hop nights on Tuesday nights, allowing up and coming MC’s to display their skills in front of an enthusiastic audience.
