Fun fact: The team that resurrected The Bomb Factory will also be reopening '90s super-venue Deep Ellum Live next door. The dream of the '90s is alive on Canton St.
Formerly known as the Red Blood Club, this Deep Ellum bar hosts everything from comedy to noise rock. But what it does best is local hip-hop. With a sweaty, underground club-like atmosphere and a love of the experimental, this is where the hip-hop fans with their ears to the ground know to go on any given weekend.
Fun fact: At one point in the early history of the Red Blood Club, concertgoers were offered free hot dogs served from a Crock-Pot as part of paid admission to a show.
While Trees used to be primarily considered a rock club, this staple located on the heart of the Elm St strip has steadily played host to more and more national hip-hop shows. From Slim Thug to Aesop Rock, Trees is the place to catch a rising hip-hop star before they get too big to play rock clubs.
