Surprise! Columbus is having a moment, and its music scene is a large reason why. From intimate listening rooms and jazz clubs to stadiums and other large venues, Cbus knows how to draw a crowd. You’ll find the underground rock scene at The Basement, which features national bands and local groups working hard to perfect their craft while waiting to hit it big. Stop by Natalie’s in Worthington for great acoustics and coal-fired pizza; and those in the know never miss Soul Sundays here, a popular brunch on the first Sunday of each month showcasing national and regional gospel artists. Rambling House Soda is a quirky little spot north of the Ohio State University’s campus, offering craft soda alongside live roots and bluegrass nightly, plus an open jam session on Sunday evenings.
