The Shorty Awards are for the best in Twitter and social media. Now, unless you’ve been living under a rock or are a total newcomer (in which case, Hello!), you know The Roxy is huge on social media. We have the largest online community of any venue in the United States with over 130,000 fans on Facebook and over 50k followers on Twitter.
The Roxy Theatre has been bringing you the best artists in the biz since 1973. We have hosted acts that have influenced everyone since before the doors even opened. And when they finally did, it was with a run of Neil Young shows. Since then, just a small list of those who have graced our stage: Bob Marley, Bruce Springsteen, Guns N Roses, Jane’s Addiction, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Cheech & Chong, David Bowie, Steve Martin, Taj Mahal, Lou Reed, Prince, X, No Doubt, Social Distortion, Weezer, Dick Dale, Maroon 5, The Donnas, Courtney Love. You know, to name a few and not even mention the birthplace of the Rocky Horror Picture Show in the United States.
