Are you a wellspring of useless knowledge dying to show off said useless knowledge? Do you like great local food and drink specials? Come check out Trivia Night at downtown Phoenix’s Crescent Ballroom. Every Sunday night, starting at 6 pm, two quizmasters, DJ Bruce and his partner, Compton provide ten rounds of challenging pub trivia while spinning records from their extensive catalog while you and your teammates drink, dine and compete for prizes.

man having funThe trivia bout runs from 6 pm to 8 pm and has become a hit among the pop culture connoisseurs here in Arizona. The rounds range from current events and sports to hip tv trivia (think It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, etc.) and, of course, music. If you have a vinylphile or a hip tv phile in your life who seems to know every fact about every album or show you could ever think of, bring him out for this one and try for some prizes.

Past winners have walked away with concert tickets, gift cards for the venue, free CDs and bragging rights. While you’re there, you can catch a live concert every single night of the week at the venue.


Trivia night happens every Sunday at Crescent Ballroom, downtown’s favorite music venue, located at 308 North Second Avenue in downtown Phoenix, one block West of the Central light rail station. The music starts at 5 and the questions start at 6, so gather your dream team together and try your hand at Crescent Trivia.
