Complex Magazine has named the TLA, the Trocadero Theater and the Electric Factory on their list of America's 50 Best Concert Venues.

The TLA was chosen for its cool tucked away first floor bar, the Troc for its burlesque aesthetics and the Electric Factory for its 'behind-the-scenes' view from the upper level.

Other venues that top the list include the gorgeous Red Rocks Amphitheater, House of Blues in Hollywood and NYC's Webster Hall.

We're shocked that the totally amazing Union Transfer didn't make the list; but we can't have it all. What do you think of Complex's list?
