THE place for live music in Lawrence: If you like 'em, they played there. Radiohead, The Flaming Lips, the Pixies, Wilco, Trip Shakespeare, Zeppelin...the list goes on and on. With a 350-capacity, the 'Neck is big enough to get lost in the crowd but small enough to feel like you can hang out with the band. The bar's interior underwent a facelift in January 2003 -- a second tier now gives patrons a view of the stage and there's new seating around the 4 pool tables. But the character remains intact -- great sound, affordable drinks, dark atmosphere, and 'authentic' bar smell.

Ok, so Zeppelin never played the 'Neck. But plenty of Zeppelin tribute bands have!

Open for pinball and free pool at 3 p.m. except for Sundays.

Just know that on a busy Sunday karaoke evening, you won't be called to sing unless you are a friend of the emcee...regardless of how early you put your name and song on the list. Bullpoo, I tell you.

The Bottleneck needs to book the Fat Tour it has kick ass bands on it: Against Me!, the Epoxies, the Soviettes, and Stars hide Fire. They need a place to stop in Kansas. Please Bottleneck, contact People would so go to this concert!
