1502 E. Sixth, 512/524-1584
Former Spider House booker Jason McNeely’s second rock club built a devoted following through a kickass set of house bands, creative covers nights, and the occasional monster showcase. (Remember Spoon in 2014?) The club functions hand in hand with its sister spot, the Volstead Lounge. A big backyard known to host headline roadshows like Thee Oh Sees connects the two outside. That space becomes popular during summer months when the club’s cozy confines of under 200 get moist.
