around here, there are not too many places left in their stage from the 40's or 50's - not a particularly 'bright' era...

regarding more modern venues, i could name one in every other city!

[plenty of place up to ca. 2200 capacity. things get really difficult though for capacity between 3000-5000; then there are various places again for 8000-15000 - of course the larger venues are not purpose-built but (partially) owned by the cities and mostly get used for trade shows, conventions etc.]
