Yeah, I see what you did there. Funny.

Where's the old faithful venue of blues in this city now? Or babe me a local band to check out. Any help is appreciated, it'll give me someplace to spend my money, support local and check out what I like.

Tudor Lounge would probably be your best bet.

The Mohawk is fully operational these days. Jony James also plays there for various happy hours.
