Live music, from rock to blues to funk, bring the crowds to this tiny but not claustrophobic Federal Hill establishment.  The owners, firm believers in music sharing, often give out CDs of the bands performing there or flash drive recordings of the night's show. The space is narrow and dark (allowing the usually young music lovers to get close to the band) with a small bar area on the second level looking down on the first floor stage. 8X10 has been a mainstay in Federal Hill for a long time, becoming a live music venue in the 1980s. It was rocking then, bringing in the Dave Matthews Band, Nirvana, and Billy Joel along with local bands. Today the emphasis is on good music and almost always local.
