If you're looking for a cheap beer and good local music, Subterranean is worth checking out. It's narrow halls turn every show into an intimate affair, and the second floor balcony offers a birds eye view of both the stage and crowd. Just don't stop and try to watch the show from the stairs...You will be ushered along.
