The Smell

The Smell

Get ready for some noise! This grungy downtown spot is a magnet for punk and experimental rock, and the vibe is thoroughly D.I.Y. It's volunteer-run, and most shows are $5, so the edgy acts onstage can jam free of corporate interests. Bonus: there's graffiti art and a vegan snack bar.
