26 S. Farmer Ave., Tempe, AZ 85281
Don't let its granola aura and weekly jam band gigs fool you -- the Sail Inn is more than just a hangout for local hippies. Underneath its funky exterior beats the heart of a rock club that's versatile enough to host marquee-level acts going full-tilt boogie one night, and then an intimate locals-only show the next. It's also a cornerstone for the eclectic Tempe scene (groups like Dry River Yacht Club, Black Carl, What Laura Says, and their ilk perform here so often, you'd swear they're the house bands) and weekends are usually the domain of daylong mini-festivals packed with at least a half-dozen acts. And if whatever concert you're witnessing takes place on the outdoor stage, so much the better, as the Sail's open-air amphitheatre allows for killer performances underneath the stars.
