Top local and national acts wail on the stage of local icon Buddy Guy. The man himself usually plugs in his axe for a series of shows in January (tickets go on sale in November). The location is a bit rough around the edges, but the acts are consistently excellent.

The venue also hosts free, all-ages acoustic performances from noon to 2pm Wednesday through Sunday. Listen in while having lunch (the club doubles as a Cajun restaurant) or a drink at the bar.
