Lover of live music? Whether you want to find a local indie act, a beat you can move your body to, or a national headliner on a big stage, you've come to the right spot. Here’s our guide to Indy’s live music scene.

The Vogue, located just south of the Broad Ripple strip, is recognized as one of the most popular and storied music venues in the Midwest. Originally opening as a premier movie theater in 1938, nearly 40 years later it was transformed into one of Indy’s top nightclubs. Here you’ll find a great variety of national touring acts and artists on the rise, as well as the #1 dance club in Indianapolis.

The 19th-century Athenaeum Building downtown houses The Rathskeller, where Wednesday through Saturday (and occasionally Sundays) they host a variety of the best live local bands - not that some larger acts haven’t stopped through as well! With the atmosphere of a “lively beer hall in Munich, ” and the perfect backdrop of Indy’s skyline, you’d be missing out if you didn’t visit and experience it for yourself.

The Jazz Kitchen doubles as Indy’s prominent jazz club and restaurant, showcasing many local, regional, and international jazz acts. The Jazz Kitchen’s Latin dance night and year-round music schedule helped secure their spot on Downbeat Magazine’s list of the “World’s Top 100 Jazz Clubs.”

Old National Centre is housed in the largest Shrine temple in North America and is the oldest stage house in downtown Indy. You’ll find the line-up of shows that come through here as impressive as the architecture of the building itself! Visit year-round for the hottest acts in music, comedy, and Broadway hosted in either the Murat Theatre, Egyptian Room, or Deluxe.

Hi-Fi is an intimate performance and art space located in the Murphy Art Center in Fountain Square. It hosts concerts, art shows, special events, and the Do317/MOKB Lounge Session Series. The likes of groups such as The Lumineers, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Walk The Moon, Young The Giant, and many other amazing artists have performed here.

Since May 2012 the Tin Roof has been known as the live music joint with a laid-back atmosphere where you can kick back and have a good time. Also known for their made-from-scratch food served up by a friendly and eclectic staff right in downtown Indianapolis. You have to see this place to believe it!

White Rabbit Cabaret is located in Fountain Square, which is quickly becoming the center of Indianapolis for the unique and entertaining. The White Rabbit fits perfectly into this niche neighborhood and has a diverse schedule including concerts, Burlesque Bingo, and a calendar brimming with other fun events.

Radio Radio in Fountain Square is consistently one of the best live music venues in the city, with a first-class sound-system and beautiful winding bar. Indy’s best play here alongside the bands you’ll be hearing a lot about next year. Hang out here and you’re bound to see the “next big thing” while enjoying great music, great drinks, and great people.

Melody Inn is one of the oldest bars in Indianapolis, established 1935. Whether you’re wanting to lounge in a vinyl booth from the old Teepee Restaurant or sit at the original oak bar, you can kick back and relax with the best in live original music, the award-winning Melody Inn jukebox, drinks, and one friendly staff! There’s something for everyone there.

The Hoosier Dome is a gritty, intimate all-ages venue with an underground feel. Since 2011 it’s been a drug-free and alcohol-free venue focused on giving people of all ages a positive place they can come and enjoy great live music.

Come to 8 Seconds Saloon for a taste of Nashville without leaving the city! Revered for its line dancing, you’ll also find some of the best country acts, drink specials, and great food. If that wasn’t enough, they’re famous for their mechanical bull for those feeling adventurous!

Where are places to play live music near Indianapolis, IN? | Yahoo Answers

If you don't mind playing for free and just are in it for the love of music, play downtown on the circle, people will enjoy it if you're good and might even through a few coins your way. Granted it would have to be acoustic, I'm sure they don't take kindly to huge amps and drum sets setting up on a busy street corner...just a suggestion.
Good luck and hope I could help :]
