Blind Pig & 8 Ball Saloon

The Blind Pig , located above the 8ball Saloon at 208 S. First St. in downtown Ann Arbor, has seen some pretty impressive talent, such as the Motor City punk pioneers, the MC5, Hendrix, and even John Lennon, plus tons of other local & touring artists, bands, & DJ’s over the last 3 decades. It’s also been a number one favorite of the late Kurt Cobain.

Head over for Monday night karaoke, and catch different genres of acts all throughout the week. Tonight check out the blind pig and catch S.U.N, Gorilla Funk Mob, Paradime (of Kid Rock fame), and tomorrow The Sights play with the Satin Peaches. And coming in March are Tally Hall, Electric Six, and Sister Hazel.

If pool tables and darts are more your taste, then head downstairs to the 8Ball.
