eTown Hall

For the first time in more than two decades, eTown finally has a home of its own. eTown Hall is a multi-purpose building in the heart of downtown Boulder that is not only home to eTown’s offices, but also a world-class live music venue, full service recording studio and a real community center.

True to eTown’s longstanding commitment to environmental education and “doing the right thing,” this building, converted from an old church facility, is quite possibly the greenest music and media center in Colorado!

eTown Hall is a home for the values and ideas that have helped make eTown thrive since 1991. It’s a place for music, certainly, but also so much more.
