As the name suggests, the original Basement, which continues to offer live music seven nights a week, is located beneath Grimey's in the subterranean level of a house on 8th Avenue South. The second outpost, which debuted in early 2015, may not be underground, but a bigger space means it's much more accommodating of bigger name acts like the Shadowboxers—who sell out immediately and often bring out surprise artists such as Reba McEntire and Little Big Town for a song or two—not to mention a far more comfortable venue from which to watch a show.
