For a quintessential Nashville experience, visit this 90-seat club in a nondescript strip mall in Green Hills. No matter what changes come to Nashville, the Bluebird remains one of the premier venues for up-and-coming songwriters, who perform their music acoustically, typically in the round (where the artists are in the center of the room). There are usually two shows a night: one at 6:30pm featuring budding acts and another at 9pm, when more established acts take the stage. Open mic nights take place from time to time. Because the club is so small, you may want to purchase tickets online in advance. Most shows go on sale 1 week before showtime, and the maximum number of tickets you can purchase at a table is six. Shows often sell out, but even when they do, the club typically lets in about 10 people in place of no-shows, which are oddly frequent, so you could just show up early and try your luck.
