Neighborhood dive bar by day, unbelievably loud music club by night, this Central Square standby is well into its fourth decade of bridging the town-gown divide. It books blues, bluegrass, rock, and jazz in a decent-sized street-level space and cramped basement. Both floors schedule bluegrass on Tuesday; Wednesday is poetry slam night downstairs. Cash only.
