We are home to "South Main Sounds Songwriter Nights" where we host musicians who play only their original music.  Sometimes it's a local artist, sometimes it's someone who has written hits for other people or had a hit themselves.  We have had people play from over 17 states, the UK, Italy, Canada and Australia. We also sell T-Shirts, Vinyl Records, local CDs, artwork and our soon to be famous Koozies.  We'll always post our schedule right here.
