Best Place to Hear Live Music

The Top Hat

Readers' Pick

The Top Hat is a reliable place to check out a show on the weekend, but it’s also reliably diverse. Name a genre and the ol’ venue has probably hosted it, from the womp-womp of Bassnectar to the indie Americana of Deer Tick. It seems to be the CD-release party zone of choice, too, having served up local releases on a steady basis for years. Sitting near the dance floor, standing near the stage or leaning on the bar, there’s room for you, your drink and all your buddies, too. Just don’t yell “Freebird!” The Top Hat: 134 W. Front St., 728-9865,
