Local Venues


The Blind Tiger

The Blind Tiger (est. 1988 ) as a local neighborhood bar, transformed itself rather quickly into one of the best live music venues in NC. Being dedicated to bringing the best in local, regional and national music, the Tiger was able to acquire the talents of such acts as-Ben Folds Five (their first show), Hootie and The Blowfish, Edwin McCain, Members of The Neville Brothers, Papa Grows Funk, Bernie Worell (Parliament Funkadelic), Johnny Neal (Allman Brothers), Lee Boys, Hobex, various Jeff Sipe projects and not to leave out almost every local talent residing in Greensboro. 24 years is a long time for a club to be supporting live music in our area, and we’re very honored and proud to be a part of one of the richest musical areas in the southeast and now that we’ve moved to 1819 Spring Garden St., the music will only get bigger and better. So come join the family and be exposed to the best entertainment offered in the Triad.
