Blind pig

  • The Blind Pig
The Blind Pig opened almost 20 years ago as a blues bar. It retains a gritty, bluesy feel, even as the musical selection has expanded to include all sorts of funk, punk and indie sounds. The Pig sticks to its down and dirty blues roots by proudly defying the current trend of programming DJs and electronic music. The sounds from this stage are made by real people playing real instruments, which makes the Blind Pig an oasis in a digital world for local groups as well as national acts. If drinking and gaming sounds more enticing than live music, head downstairs to the 8-Ball Saloon for an even larger selection of beer and liquor, as well as pool, darts and video games.
