Everybody Wang Chung Tonight! If you're a night owl like I am, you'll want to know where you can go to get a drink and listen to some amazing live music. Most good adventures start with SongKick, a great website where you get alerts when your favorite music artist is coming to a city near you or a city you're going to be visiting. If you're an Indie Rokker(MGMT  Reference:), start with The Bends where 2 to 3 times a week you can go see independent bands from around the country or hit up Paper Crane, where you'll hear the latest up & coming music acts you may not have heard of.
