The thought of sending naive teenagers into the heart of the Ballpark neighborhood can be daunting for parents. But thanks to Soda Jerk Presents owner Mike Barsch, such apprehension is unfounded when it comes to the Marquis Theater. Although all Marquis shows are all-ages (unless otherwise posted), the venue's promoters — who successfully put on all-ages shows at Tulagi and Rock Island for years before taking over here — clearly cater to the underage set with their assortment of punk, rock and metal acts. Barsch and company consistently put together stacked bills of both emerging acts and veterans that appeal to the younger generation as well as the over-21 crowd, which can drink here with an ID. In 2015, nine years after the Marquis opened, it underwent a nice remodel, with new sound and lighting systems and a bar expansion.
