While not exactly a Southeast Michigan venue (it's a 2 hour drive from my Brighton home), Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo has really come on the scene as an excellent place to see live bluegrass. I'd been meaning to go for a long time, and found myself with some time on my hands this weekend, so I loaded up the car and made the trek. Boy, am I glad I did!

Overall, I loved this venue and loved the show! Even though the two hour drive there was bad, and the drive home at 2am was worse, I wouldn't hesitate to make the drive again to catch a cool, local act. I know some of the brewhouses / bars in the SeMi area are starting to host these kinds of gigs--I only hope they catch on and thrive.
