The Catalyst is definitely the most fun venue of all of the ones I've been to in Santa Cruz. It is near and dear to my heart because I've seen many great shows here, watched my friends perform here and even performed here once! They have a broad variety of genres and local as well as national groups performing.

I've been here for jam bands, Latin, and reggae shows which are always full of the hippie crowd and positive vibes. They also have a lot of punk bands performing as punk music is also really popular in Santa Cruz but I don't know what those shows are like!

They also have the "Atrium" where they often have free shows and 21+ dance parties on Saturdays. Sometimes the crowd can get a little shady though! Upstairs they have pool tables, games, and more seating.
