From arena rock stars like Aerosmith and The Cars to local rockers gaining national recognition like Speedy Ortiz and Bad Rabbits, Boston has seen some great musicians over the years. And though iconic local music venues like TT the Bear’s Place and Johnny D’s have closed in recent months, the Greater Boston area still has plenty of places to get your groove on. But which music spots are the most popular?
Thanks to data from check-in app Swarm, we were able to find out which music venues people checked into the most from Wednesday, March 30 to Tuesday, April 5.
For those unfamiliar, Swarm is an app from Foursquare that lets users check in when they visit locations like restaurants, bars, and parks. The app also makes every day a game with perks like coins and mayorships, and lets users keep track of streaks and places they’ve been with an updated profile tab.
Without further ado, here are the most-visited music venues in the Greater Boston area.
