To clarify

Don't think I made this clear enough with yesterday's Fab Five post.

I'm looking for bars with consistent live music.

Preferably free live music. 

So clubs like the 8x10 or the Ottobar don't count.

But bars like the Red House Tavern do.

So give me more stuff like that.

Sam Sessa, laying down the law!

Full Moon Saloon in Fells used to have music all the time. Haven't been there in a while though.

@ Drew. leave greektown. Moon closed like a century ago.
@ SS how about the Black Hole in Dundalk.

We were just at The Red House last night for open mic night and had a blast seeing local musicians rip it up. Awesome bar crowd & the owners are fantastic as well. I'd say it's a great venue for free, local music!

Leadbetters in Fell's Point has live music everyday

I'd think The Depot would fit the description, though bands are less common than DJ's.

I haven't been yet (so I'm not sure if they have a cover or not), but Bedrock might fit the bill as well. They seem to lean more towards non-band live music, but they do have live Big In Japan on April 6.
