Typically regarded as a den of Pabst-swigging punk purism, Avalon Bar is shaking things up every third Thursday with Jelly Rolla howling, all-night party where booze and the blues collide. Music of masters like Junior Kimbrough, Muddy Waters and Skip James commingle inside the walls of a dimly-lit, soulful juke-joint setting plastered with photos and posters of blues legends, offering a much needed history lesson while youre taking a breather from the dance floor. Anticipate a night of rare tunes courtesy of DJs Brother Cecil (aka DJ Oldboy) and Urethra Franklin as well as live music from local blues man Parker Macy and more.
Third Thursday of every month, 9 p.m., 2009
