Double Down Live!

Double Down Live! is a relatively new place in Gainesville, Fla. However, the location is legendary for local musicians because it used to house Common Grounds, a historic music venue in the area. Double Down is basically the same venue- just with new management. The same type of bands are still being booked, and local artists are still encouraged. A heads up, though, that this venue is an 18+ only (as are most venues in Gainesville!). Even performers can't get in if they're underage- Unless a parent or legal guardian brings them and stays the entire time.
