I’ve been mentioned before how many great venues there are in Orange County for live music. Today I’m going to put them in one, easy to find place.
Malone’s in Santa Ana. Has to be one of my favorites and definitely my home Club, especially on House of Metal nights. Mike& Ed always have the best bands!
Centerfield in Huntington Beach . Another one of my new favorites. With Jackie Davis as a regular promoter, you can be guaranteed to see a great band. We have used this venue for many benefits and special events and the staff is friendly and supportive.
The world famous Doll Hut Anaheim..
This club has been a hotspot in the music scene for many years, especially for punk rock. The owner Mac is an awesome dude, so supportive toward the scene that he has begun to expand into other genres of music. It may be a tiny club but it’s got big heart.
The Slide Bar , Fullerton.
You really can’t go wrong going to the slide bar for live shows. They always book great bands. Any given weekend you can see a great live show on either the outdoor stage or in their famous back room. Most often these shows are free. Either way the sound is great, the ambiance is great and their wings Kick-Ass!
These are just a few venues that I frequent regularly. I hope this will help you in your search to find great places to see bands in the Orange County area. Remember, this is just the tip of the iceberg ,Orange County has so many great venues … Look around for yourself! If you see Big Momma at one of these shows come up and say hello!
