Adair's 2624 Commerce St.

If you like country music, you need look no further than Adair's for all the free music you could ever want. Seven nights a week, a diverse set of country singers and songwriters pour their hearts out on a stage that helped raise some of Texas country's best artists. Depending on which night you're heading out, live music starts as early as 7 p.m., and nightly drink specials make it easy to stick to your broke-ass budget.

Crown & Harp 1914 Greenville Ave.

Most nights, Crown and Harp has some kind of cheap, well-curated live music. A dedicated group of talented promoters, DJs, and artists make this spot unique, especially on Monday nights. Cool Out Mondays, hosted by Tony Schwa and Cold Diggin', is always an uber-fresh mix of funk, disco, boogie, and soul. Occasionally, Cool Out will host resident DJs from popular clubs across the country, but the guys who run this show every week and their commitment to "strange games and funky thangs" is enough to keep you moving until 2 am.
