17. Union Transfer in Philadelphia

Union Transfer can fit between between 600 and 1,000 fans, depending on how the "flexible room," as Arcade Fire agent David T. Viecelli calls it, locates its unusual movable stage – which makes it a small club some nights, and a mid-sized venue on others.

Capacity: 600-1,000
Fun Fact:  In 1889, the building that houses Union Transfer opened as the Spring Garden Farmers Market.
