The Valley's long-running juke joint is fine with indie rock, alternative, and alt-country during the week (last summer Atlanta garage rockers The Black Lips made a real mess of the place), but transforms into a boogieing blues party each weekend. Proprietor Bob Corritore (who hosts Those Lowdown Blues, a solid block of blues each Sunday night on KJZZ) has brought legends like R.L. Burnside and Robert Lockwood to town, often recording the onstage jam sessions for prosperity. The house band, The Rhythm Room All-Stars, are adept at backing up guitar slingers, and nights often kick off early, so you can get two whole shows' worth of music (and a couple cans of beers and a whiskey) in if you've got an afternoon to kill.
