Music Intro

Deep Ellum is a legendary neighborhood for anyone who loves live music.  In the early 1900s, Deep Ellum was the place for jazz and blues, with legendary artists such as Blind Lemon Jefferson, Robert Johnson, Huddie "Leadbelly" Ledbetter, Bessie Smith, Blind Willie Johnson, Lightning Hopkins, Alex Moore and a host of others rocking Deep Ellum's street corners and juke joints.

In the 1980s, Deep Ellum's music scene reignited by helping launch local bands like The Butthole Surfers, Old 97s, Toadies, and Tripping Daisy, the New Bohemians, and countless other bands launched or caught fire in Deep Ellum.

Today's Deep Ellum again has an exploding music scene, with a reborn Trees and DADA back and better than ever, as well as venerable venues like the nearly 100 year old Sons of Herman Hall, Adair's Saloon, The Door, Prophet Bar,  Curtain Club, the Bone, Reno's, the intimate All Good Cafe, the alt-cool scene at LaGrange or the funky trailer-park meets live music scene at DoubleWide.  The Lizard Lounge handles the dance scene.  And Tuckers Blues and Free Man have created a dynamic blues and jazz scene across from each other on Commerce.

You can hit one, or hit them all, as they are all a short walk away from each other.  What are you waiting for?
