Duffy’s Tavern, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE

5 of 29

Nirvana, 311, and Drive-By Truckers have all plugged in at Duffy’s, which is famous for getting acts before they’re actually famous. On weekends, this music (and comedy) club is also a big college hangout. Students get their money’s worth with no-cover live music and monstrous Fishbowls. Each serves four, with the drink recipe of your choice mixed into a giant glass bowl. Although Duffy’s is in a fly-over state, for well-known rock-and-roll artists, it remains a destination. Morrissey, front man of The Smiths, stopped his tour bus to hang out—no word on whether he finished a Fishbowl.
