Located on the Case campus, the Barking Spider Tavern is best known for singer-songwriter types, but jazz combos, blues groups, and indie rock bands squeeze onto the small stage too.
Rare is the venue that boasts such warm acoustics as the Kent Stage. It’s why folksingers and singer-songwriters love playing here — and why their fans adore it too.
A former Croatian Hall now nationally known as a top live venue, the Beachland made its bones with rootsy Americana bands, but regularly hosts sounds of all kinds. The Tavern next door is a great place to grab a beer and catch an up-and-comer.
