The Granada aims for memorable concert experiences

loud, the artist is interacting with the crowd, and everyone
seems to be having a great time. You sing along to each song,
and leave knowing that money and time were well spent.
Located on Massachusetts Street, The Granada Theater
is an iconic hub of local and national music.
As one of the many venues in Lawrence, it holds up quite
a bit when it comes to ensuring the amusement of its guests.
A lot of people coming here already know about the ven-
ue. We have a pretty large following on our social media,
promotions manager Eli Mitchell said. We do a lot of shows,
mostly country but occasionally metal and hip-hop, which
target people that live outside of Lawrence.
Seeing as how Lawrence is a music hub, the staff at The
Granada is very willing to work within the scene and grow
along with the community, according to Mary Costello, cur-
rent manager of The Granada.
We love working with local artists and we try to as much
