Unlike vinyl-record players, live bands typically perform better after undergarments have been thrown at them. Get intimate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two tickets to a live concert (up to a $30 value) and two drink vouchers (up to a $10 value) at Off Broadway (up to a $40 total value). This Groupon is valid for any show with a ticket value of $15 or less, with most shows priced from $10 to $15. Drink vouchers can be redeemed for well drinks including vodka, gin, tequila, bourbon, and rum cocktails, or out-of-the-bottle shots, such as a washington apple or alabama slammer.
Off Broadway—heralded as 2010's Best Rock Club by the Riverfront Times—lures in crowds several nights a week with a barrage of local bands and national touring acts of all genres. On Thursday, July 28, singer-songwriter William Elliott Whitmore performs with Strawfoot, an old-time revival country band with the requisite fiddle, banjo, and washboard abs. tune-yards annexes the venue on November 8 with violently convivial ukulele jams augmented by African-inflected vocal gymnastics, looped drums, and a duo of synchronized saxophonists. Musical Merry-Go-Round matinees amuse kids monthly on Sunday afternoons with entertainers such as Super Stolie on August 14 and Little Miss Ann on September 11.
Since no patron is ever more than 30 feet from the stage, tone connoisseurs can glimpse a guitarist's plectrum strum a chord, a drummer keep time with a pinky toe, or a singer strain to hit a note by pulling their own hair. During set breaks, swayers sidle up to the bar to imbibe picks from the full stock of beer and spirits. Though smoking is prohibited in the interior of the venue, an outdoor patio revels in tobacco fire.
