Douglas Corner Cafe
The Bluebird may be one of the most famous live music joints among outsiders, but in local circles, Douglas Corner Cafe—which opened just a few years later—is every bit as revered. This dive-y spot lives just across the street from Zanies at the end of a strip of restaurants and retail. A number of artists like Trisha Yearwood took the stage before they were famous—and many of them still do even after they've become household names. Every Tuesday is Open Mic Writers' Night, a great chance to see undiscovered talent before the rest of the world catches on.
