3. Biscuits and Buttermilk, Crescent Ballroom, Phoenix
Since its founding, Crescent Ballroom has made itself home to nearly every genre imaginable. Friday nights, that means soul and funk. Recently taken over by DJ Smite, this weekly groove-fest rocks the best in America's greatest musical exports, made famous by such labels as Sun, Stax, and Motown, all the way up to today's revival hits from Daptone.
Just as the music turns down in the main room on Friday nights, the lounge heats up. At midnight the party is just beginning.
