playAround Town BRAVA readers' favorite destinations for live music Feelin' the Beat We may associate concert season with warm evenings outdoors, but plenty of area venues showcase artists who heat up the stage during the colder months. Where do BRAVA readers head when they want a dose of live music? Here are your top destinations. A local favorite in the summer (and our readers' No. 1 pick) the Memorial Union Terrace is a quintessential place to take in live music. But when the weather cools, the UW keeps rockin' through the winter months at various venues nearby—with shows by touring international acts to open mic nights and more. See for yourself by checking out Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, a unique cello and fiddle duo playing Scottish songs, on Nov. 15 at UW's Music Hall. Runners Up: High Noon Saloon Overture/Brink and more. But the Brink Lounge holds its own, offering various local and national performers—from blues to jazz and folk to rock—in an intimate locale where you can tap your toes and sip fancy drinks. With its lit marquee advertising upcom- ing performers, the Barrymore Theatre is another reader favorite—offering a com- fortable theater-style setting and a range of touring performers. Reconnect with days gone by on Nov. 18 when Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac takes the stage. November 2012 65 are far different in size, both offer big experiences for live music. You can never go wrong at Overture Center For the Arts, home to several stages showcasing a range of performers, from big-time rock acts to international stars to its stage, seven nights a week. Join the party Nov. 11 with a concert by The Lucas Cates Band, a local act that's gained national notoriety. While our readers' third-place picks that will keep you up and moving, check out the High Noon Saloon. One of Madison's top music clubs, it's a venue that brings a range of genres—from rock n' roll to reggae— Or if you'd rather head to a venue WINNE READERS' CHO READERS Photo courtesy of The Lucas Cates Band
