Time Out says

Once known primarily as a ramshackle roadhouse of country-rock in an industrial stretch of the city, the Hideout has become a place where new musicians, veteran performers and outspoken personalities of all stripes can come together onstage. Rootsy ensemble Devil in a Woodpile still holds down a regular gig, but the venue also hosts the experimental-leaning Resonance Series, variety shows and a Saturday night dance party. It can be difficult to reach this tucked-away spot via public transportation, but it is worth it for the cheap beer, fresh sounds and DJs dropping nostalgia, from Prince to Devo.
