Well you have a misconception of the blues... it's feel good music, maybe if you others who tend to stereotype it really listened to it you'd understand. Hence the fact that the overall feeling at Pearl is one of happiness !
Best Blues Club Dallas 2010 - Pearl At Commerce - CLOSED
There's something perfect about the marriage of the blues and a well-stocked drinking establishment. On one side of the room, people express their anguish on guitars and other folk-based instruments. On the other side, patrons drink their woes away. Thing about Pearl At Commerce, though—everyone seems to be having a good time, and their burgeoning music scene is a reflection of that. The concert calendar features a nightly rotation of the area's top blues performers as well as national touring artists. While you can still get well-oiled on strong cocktails, the overall feeling here is happiness, which is somewhat at odds with the idea of the blues, but the folks at Pearl like it that way.
