About Melody Inn

the Melody Inn is one of the oldest bars in Indianapolis (est. 1935). Whether you want to lounge in a vinyl booth from the old Teepee Restaurant, sit at the original oak bar

More About Melody Inn

The walls are chock full of rock memorabilia, and the seats are full of rock fans of all stripes. Yes, the historic Melody Inn is the place for punk, metal, indie, and even EDM and freestyle. It features live local music most nights, including its notorious Punk Rock Night every Saturday, and has racked up more NUVO Best of Indy awards than any other club in recent years. When the hardcore gets a little much and you need something quieter, retreat to the PBR lounge in the back or the outdoor garden for a breath of fresh air. There’s usually a small cover charge, parking is free (and everywhere), and you simply can’t beat the super cheap PBR tallboys every night.

What makes Indianapolis a great place for producers to flourish, then, is the fact that people like Adamson, Stuart and Brookinz aren't just staying in every night, trying to get that kick drum to sound just right. They're also working hard to build infrastructure and to open whatever doors they can for young producers.

I, myself, have played many a hall show at Elks Lodges and Civic Centers too, slipping my weird version of blues and rockabilly into a scene that's always been oriented more towards venting small town angst.
