Local funk/jam band, Down Boy, gets my pick as the most exciting act of the week. Because of a lack of ticketed shows this week, I’ll turn your attention towards the regular comedy open mic nights and bars that consistently host great musicians and fun crowds.
I’ll also point the spotlight to The American Legion Post 82. They feature an active dance floor, great country/western/bluegrass, and most importantly, cheap beer. You’ll find a mix of hipsters, cowboys, bikers, and vets, calling to mind the David Allen Coe song, Longhaired Redneck. While at Post 82, you might notice that hipsterdom has reached freaky new heights, just ignore it.
🖼 At the Frist, Medieval Bologna: Art for a University City is running until January 30 and American Art Deco: Designing for the People, 1918–1939 until January 2.
