Post Local music
Anybody know a website to find local music in your area on? I live in south mississippi and i know a few bars around the area that have small bands, or small bars that have well known bands and whatnot, but if i dont know the names of the bars i cant go online and look up whos gone be playing there. Im trying to find a website that may let me browse thru the schedules of small bars and music clubs around say LA, MS and AL, but i cant seem to find one. I also cant seem to find the right words to describe what im looking for on here either as i am very tired and probably not far from heat exhaustion so if anybody can decipher what im trying to say and know of such a website, please divulge.

I miss "Vinoy Park" (Ribfest & Tampa Bay Bluse Festival), I used to go to them every year. Ever hear of the "Music Ranch" in Lakeland?

Saw Devon Allman there a couple of times. :D

I googled Jackson, MS "live music" and the 1st link is http://www.discoverourtown.com/MS/Jacks ... ts-13.html and under night life there are bars with links. The quotes around live music is one key thing to use on this kind of search.

If I put jackson mississippi bars in google it will give me http://www.switchboard.com/MS/Bars/Nightclubs/ and clicking on "Search the Web" under Fugleys took me to http://www.clubplanet.com and you can change the city and then click "places to go" and select clubs for a long list. I see the 930 Blues Cafe which looks good. An open all night blues bar - wow. This is what they had to say about it:
"930 Blues Cafe - If you have to work the next morning, we bet a thousand bucks you’re going to call in sick. That’s because 930 Blues Cafe, at 930 N Congress St, is open all night. So the odds of you getting a good night sleep are closed to zilch – we predict you stumbling home around 8am and flopping into bed, forgetting to brush your teeth. And nothing wrong with that."

Putting in Jackson Mississippi music gave me this which you will probably kick yourself in the butt for missing if you did:
http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/index.p ... ds_061709/ (Medeski, Martin & Wood - JJ Grey & Mofro - Dickey Betts & Great Southern to name a few)

Another thing to do is check out local music stores. Bands will put info up about themselves and the employees often know the band members and genre and can point you in the right direction.

Maintaining schedules on the web can be a pain and small bars often won't do it. There are many "hole in the wall" places that have kick ass people show up and you may have to call them each week to see who is coming. Look for open mic bars too - they are fun to drop in on.

As a quick follow-up, I don't know where you are at (besides on a ship every so often) so I just selected jackson as a central area to what you listed but the jackson free press has a music section like DD was saying. http://www.jacksonfreepress.com/index.p ... /listings/ . Many bands have a myspace or facebook page and you can get a feel for what they play. They will keep those updated more often than what many bars will do and you can track them there. I get turned on to new places in the Jax, Fl area that way.

Dartdog82...I miss "Vinoy Park" (Ribfest & Tampa Bay Bluse Festival), I used to go to them every year.

I go to the Tampa Bay Blues Fest every year possible, it's always so nice, the weather is perfect and the location is beautiful. I've been going there since 1999. I'd never heard of the festival until an acquaintance of mine, Randy McDonald, former bass player of The Tommy Castro Band, sent me a schedule that they were playing there back in 1999.....so I went to see them and been back many times since. Last year both the TBBF and the Wanee were on the same weekend.
