Jun 24, 2013 —  There certainly isn’t a shortage of outlets for people to get their music these days. Whether it’s Spotify, iTunes, Pandora – or whatever else the kids are using – everybody has an opportunity to make a playlist to suit their mood or taste.

It’s debatable whether these new ways to consume music will make traditional radio obsolete. However, the popularity of live music seems immune to the volatile trends faced by the entertainment industry. America is packed with neighborhoods that prove in-person musical acts are alive and well.

Chicago’s Lincoln Park offers Second City denizens a slew of bars, clubs, and lounges to hear both new and old tunage from local and international bands. Lincoln Hall, for example, hosts alternative, indie, rock, or acoustic concerts every night.

Meanwhile in New York City, edgy punk rocker types flock to the Lower East Side in hopes of seeing the next White Stripes. The music-infused party rages on all night long in this area, as crowds are reluctant to leave the lively dance fests that pop up at bars along Stanton and Broome streets.

America is chock-full of neighborhoods where live music blares through the windows of watering holes, restaurants, and concert halls. Listeners will undoubtedly find an artist or two to add to their playlist.
