David Nevin, proprietor of The Rock Shop in Downtown San Jose, is about to help perpetuate live music in Downtown San Jose in a big way. His latest project is called the Back Bar, and it will occupy part of what used to be the Cactus Club back in the day. Unlike the Cactus Club; however, the Back Bar will only be 21 and over.
The live music will range from rock, punk, metal, new wave, and 80s and will be open every day of the week. They will have a DJ, but the focus will be on live music. Total capacity for the venue is 130.
I think this will go very well with Cafe Stritch and the other live music venues popping up throughout Downtown!
