ROCK 106.3 was at the Grand Opening celebration of Portland's newest event space, Aura.
Aura (formally known as The Aslyum) was a great venue before the remodel but now it's a venue that is second to none in New England.
After it's $9.1 million renovation, the venue is able host a wider range of events, including more national concerts, weddings and conferences.
The renovated main concert space has a capacity of about 1,000 people, compared with roughly 500 before. There are multiple bars in public and private areas, live feed video of the stage everywhere, and two VIP lounges. A full schedule and tickets to shows are available here.
