The Blue Note

17 N. Ninth St. Columbia, MO 65201 | Columbia | 573-874-1944

Location Description:

The Blue Note used to be a movie theater, and it feels like it, with plenty of floor space, a high-set stage, and tiered seating for the less physical in the crowd. Its reputation is the thing of music myth, and the storied stage continues to draw big names that would rather play a guaranteed college crowd than take their chances in St. Louis. It's a haul, but at the end of the night, the Blue Note is more than worth the drive.
