Lets face it. People are busy. It’s hard to find time to go out and enjoy yourself during the week and in some cases the weekend as well. There are so many things you could choose to do with a night off and a night out that you may even feel overwhelmed. The great thing about Arlington is that just about every night of the week you can find something unique going on at just about any bar in the area and for live music lovers any night from Wednesday through Saturday you can find some great live acts.
Whitlows features it’s “All Original Acoustic Wednesdays”, if your looking for an intimate scene with some good original artists. The rest of the week, they will mainly have cover bands, but always check the schedule because they will mix it up every now and then.
The Clarendon Grill and Clarendon Ballroom will let some of the areas biggest and most popular bands hit the stage on Thursday nights. This also could be original artists or cover bands. Sometimes you would rather listen to a new artist you have never heard of and sometimes you want to sing a long to all of your favorite 80’s songs with Toxic Mouse.
The Front Page in Ballston will sporadically have live music. Although the stage is small, the space in front really opens up to create a great dance floor. Wednesdays-Saturdays are always a good chance of seeing some live music in the Ballston area.
When asked what night she preferred to see live music and why, Jennie Gediman of Ballston, said “There’s nothing like starting your weekend off with good friends and a good time. Give me a Friday night, live music, my dancing shoes, and I’m hooked.”
Friday and Saturday are usually the nights people find themselves out on the town. However, many of the bars in the area will reserve those nights for DJ’s to provide a more dance party atmosphere. Again, it’s always best to check the schedules or call ahead of time at your favorite bars to find out what the music situation will be that night.
If Sunday night is your preference before you start the week back up, the only place you will find live music is Iota Club & Cafe.
The best night for live entertainment really depends on you and your schedule. Whichever night you choose, you have options. Make sure you find time at least once during the week, because you’ve worked hard, and you’ve earned it.
