44 South Alamaden Avenue
San Jose, CA 95113
Opened by the former owner of San Jose’s The Cactus Club, the Blank Club is small, dingy, dark, and loud! Tickets are cheap—as are drinks—and the bands are mostly of the small indie variety, with the occasional appearance by bigger names. But most of all, this spot is laid back and unpretentious. You don’t have to dress up to rock out here.
Tip: If you like to dance, or if you’re just plain nostalgic for the ’80s, check out Atomic Thursdays. Every Thursday, the club features a DJ spinning New Wave hits—and it’s free before 10:00 p.m.
