The Shakedown Bar

NOTE: This establishment has closed. This page remains for historical records.

Shakedown is a little rough around edges. The place’s motto is “Booze, Bikes, Bands, Broads, and Rods,” and that’s exactly what you’ll get. Shakedown holds impromptu barbecues, skate demos, and car-club rallies. A true punk dive.

No longer is the Shakedown booking predominantly punk acts. Operator Anilee has been working with Casbah honcho Tim Mays and Johnny from Lancer's, who was about to move to Austin but has stayed on to book a slate of upcoming Shakedown shows ---

Shakedown owner/booker Anilee Griffin says the Shakedown will no longer be hosting live music. The final concert at the venue was held October 25, 2014.
