    Aahhh . . . where to start

    Blues: Quite a few places; Rainbow Hotel in Fitzroy. Cherry Bar in the city on Sundays. Cornish Arms in Brunswick . . .
    Jazz; Dizzy's in Richmond (I know there are plenty of others but I'm not really in that scene) . . .
    Alt Rock: Pick a pub, any pub, in Collingwood, Fitzroy, Northcote or Brunswick pretty much any night of the week . . .

    A venue to add to all the above categories is the Esplanard Hotel ( The Espy ) in St.Kilda. Multiple bands in 3 rooms every night of the week and (mostly) free !!!

    Luthiers/guitar shop: My fav is Syndal Music in Syndal (duh! - it's a suburb in the East). There's The Acoustic Centre in South Melbourne. There's Billy Hyde/Allans (big stores) in a couple of suburbs.


    You'll love it !!! :D

    If blues is your thing, check out the MBAS jam every Tuesday night.

    Otherwise, there's lots going on in Fitzroy/Brunswick/Northcote/Thornbury.
