Huntsville is quickly becoming a music hub in Alabama for small and renowned artists alike. Here are some more intimate (but still fun and unique) live music venues you should check out to get the most out of Huntsville’s bustling music scene.

Coffee and a show…what could be better? Gold Sprint is a coffee shop by day and show venue by night.

Open mic nights are hosted by local artist Wanda every first Thursday from 7-10PM (for free) and are open to all ages and artists. Gold Sprint also hosts a variety of small bands, including an upcoming show on Saturday, July 22.

2. Boardman HSV

If you want something really different, check out Boardman HSV: a house show venue meets music collective.

Boardman HSV also hosts shows through Undertow Shows who’s mission is to connect small artists with intimate, unique venues.

3. Stovehouse

Stovehouse’s Main Stage at the Leisure Lawn and Food Garden hosts a variety of local artists to serenade the guests of Stovehouse.

Complementary live music is every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (the best time to visit Stovehouse, in my opinion).

4. The Electric Belle at Stovehouse

If you love Stovehouse but indoor music is more your vibe, check out the Electric Belle.

Grab a drink from the bar and enjoy the show.

5. The Camp at MidCity

Concerts on the Dock doesn’t start back until September 8, but that doesn’t mean we can’t include it on this list. Explore Lowe Mill’s extensive art galleries and studios before enjoying a festival-style concert by local and regional artists.
