5 clubs to hear jam bands

Dying to get your jam on? Here are five clubs near downtown where tie dye is always in

Liberty Hound / 1 Naval Park, Canalside / Buffalo

During the summer, the Liberty Hound packs ‘em with jam bands performing on the patio overlooking the Buffalo Inner Harbor. Intimate and awesome.

Blue Monk / 727 Elmwood Ave. / Buffalo

Boutique brews, and killer live bands. Not exclusively jam-band oriented – jazz, blues and DJs fill the roster, too. But a great place to get your jam on when the time is right.

Town Ballroom / 681 Main St. / Buffalo

For the big touring jam-bands. Home to Moe. Whenever the Buffalo-born band comes home. The room that helped to break Umphrey’s McGee locally.

Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar / 253 Allen St. / Buffalo

Not exclusively jam band, but a regular stop for local proponents of the form. Intimate and dimly lit, a great room for those looking to lose themselves in the ebb and flow of improvisation-based music.

Nietzsche's / 248 Allen St. / Buffalo

The hub of the Buffalo jam-band scene. Plenty of room for dancing.
