Thursday nights can be trouble for a music appreciator like me. It's late enough in the week for the desire to let my hair down, but there's still one more day of work to endure. The live music program at Room 60, Kelvin Grove Village, is just the right medicine.

I chanced upon this venue recently when one of my favourite musicians, Alan Boyle, advised me he was performing there a couple of weeks ago. Room 60 is an intimate venue, with seating for about about two dozen people and standing room for about the same number again.It's owned and run by Clare Dyson and it's a really friendly venue, with a select drinks menu, their own boutique beer, unusual cocktails and a food menu. Alan Boyle's acoustic performance allowed him to interact with the audience and he finished with my favourite track "Oxygen".

Further information on Alan Boyle is located here.

I enjoyed the venue so much, I returned the following Thursday to see Ben Crick perform. Ben Crick has taken a break from the scene, and with a return of creativity recently, this was his first gig back. You could have heard a pin drop in the room, everyone was quiet like we were all in a listening room.I'm looking forward to following his work.

Further information on Ben Crick is located here.

The Thursday night music program commences at7pm, and there's the opportunity to enjoy two different acts before 9:30pm, which is a quite reasonable time to wrap up on a school-night. And without later-night venues close by, tempting you in, you can get home safely so your Friday isn't spent hoping your boss doesn't need anything productive out of you. So this coming Thursday, head on down to Room 60, grab yourself a drink and savour the atmosphere!

Room 60 is open 4pm-midnight, Monday through Saturday and offers a variety of different experiences in addition to the Thursday night live music program.
