Seeing a concert at the Red Room @ 939 is quite a unique experience. With no immediate bar, although a few short steps from the Cantina bar, an intimate concert always ensues. Shows are also occasionally streamed by the college radio station (http://thebirn.com). Concerts are typically booked by students at the college and all styles of music are represented here - particularly world, pop and rock. A bit awkward at times due to the inherent quietness of the room. Re-entry is usually allowed and the venue is directly connected to a small cafe as well as a nearby bar. I believe it is a 200-capacity room. Definitely a very unique opportunity and experience to see a show without a ton of excess noise in the background. Concerts here are always very personal. I have seen a number of shows here and the talent is impeccable; an excellent venue to catch smaller/acoustic concerts in Boston.
