Any clever band would use every inch of the podcast and alt-country radio show discussions, but what would really be handy is a list of good bars that host alt-country bands written by the people who know.
So speak up! When bands come to your town where should they play? What bars should they avoid and why.
My area : North Texas
The Double Wide
House of Blues
Lola's Sixth Street
Lola's Stockyards (there's two Lola's)
Fred's (smaller outdoor venue)
The Moon Bar
Rubber Gloves (RGRS)
I'm in San Antonio for work next week.
Any recommendations for where the real Roots/Country/Americana/etal clubs are?
I'm more of an Austin type music fan, but I gotta go where they send me, and the ride is free...
(I assume Austin at 80 miles away is too far for one night (though maybe when I was younger...)
Thanks all! Looking forward to my first trip to TX.
Small town Scotland UK , absolutely eff all.
A pub with local singers, some decent, doing covers of 60's 70's hits etc.
Very poor. Thanks for depressing me...............
Hey Steve, check out Stacie Collins (www.staciecollins.com). She is a force of nature and puts on quite the live show. More importantly, she routinely plays gigs in England and many are in the Midlands and farther north. While granted, this is not Scotland, is still a lot closer than trekking all the way to London. In May, she is playing gigs in Grimsby, Leicester, Kendal (closest to you), and Mansfield.
