Avalon Ballroom Discography

This is a discography of albums recorded at the Avalon Ballroom.

The Avalon Ballroom at 1268 Sutter Street was built in 1911 and originally called the Puckett Academy of Dance. The building was used a rock venue between 1966 and 1968 primarily by the Family Dog under the direction of Chet Helms. Complaints against noise led to the venue losing its performance licence early in 1969. The building was converted into a movie theater in the 1970's and continued in that role until 2001. Between 2003 and 2006 the building was again used as a performance space using the Avalon Ballroom name.
