From the Archives: Award-winning sound!

Our main room at Bimbo’s 365 Club has award-winning sound!  Architect Timothy Pfleuger designed the building around the acoustics of the middle of the room, and since the finished construction in 1931 live music has always been at its best on our stage.  Check out this photo from the 1960s featuring our main orchestra of the More…

From the archives: the Korla Pandit Experience!

It was a dark and stormy January night of 1996, and the sold-out crowd was chomping at the bit for Korla Pandit to take the stage.  The mysterious charmer with trance-inducing musical talent was no where to be found inside the club, and the audience anxiously awaited for that full-body auditory experience that the Godfather More…

From the archives: Bimbo and the Big Fish of 1940!

Fishing season is now open, and oh boy do we have some fishing stories to tell!  Mr. Bimbo loved to fish, but he also loved his hooked stories just as much.  His tales weren’t unlike the many glorious orations you’ve heard of that monstrous piscine that got away, but in one particular occasion he had More…

From the archives: Dance a little jig for St. Patricks Day, or juggle your beers on a unicycle!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day!  Check out this “edgy” show we had back in 1952 where “Dancing a Jig” meant way more than a dance!  The look of concern on the Sassy Lassie in the background is enough insight to know that this show kept people on the edge of their seats.  Key note item when More…

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour – Oct 17

Bombastically thrilling are words commonly used to describe The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s live performances.

Zola Jesus is a realization of knowing a place in the world. Nika Roza Danilova has gone from being an outsider, experimental, teenage noise-maker to a fully-fledged, internationally-celebrated, electronic-pop musician. It was a huge accomplishment, and, despite her age (young), her origins (mid-western, desolate), her accelerated scholastic achievements (high school and college were each completed More…
