Grungy, loud and daunting, this dive is worth it for the atmosphere (and the price). – In Short
Old (but not vintage) concert posters adorn the walls and the crumbly ceiling has definitely seen better days. The clientele range from tattooed biker types to well-groomed curiosity seekers. Although the exterior may scream "BEWARE," the vibe is typically friendly and the mostly female bartenders are quite nice (especially if you speak loud enough to place an order).
What Band??? – Was the previous posting a review of the Club, the bands talent or their style of music? Oftentimes a band plays Silky's that is not blues per se, but they will do a couple of blues numbers each set. Hang out for a couple of drinks and check it out. Also, REAL blues bands play in Houston every night. Venture away from Kirby and the Village once in a while and check them out also.
SUCKS – Showed up with some friendd friday night and the music was horrible. Nothing blues about it and I was so looking forward to hearing some blues. The big easy on kirby is probable the only real place for some good blues.
