pubs/clubs with rock or Indie music?

Can anyone suggest any pubs or clubs in Playa del Ingles playing indie type music such as the Killers, Franz and Arctic Monkeys? Or even in the whole of Gran Canaria in case we take a day trip?

We found a fab live music bar in Playa de las Americas in Tenerife last year called Spotlight and we'd love to find somewhere similar in Gran Canaria to go this year!

And any must-see tourist attractions?

Thank you!

BUMP!

No replies to this post from last year - does that mean there are no such places anyone's aware of?

Go to the Kasbah at night. Can´t name somewhere exactly but you may find somewhere there. There are lots of bars clubs etc etc there .

Kasbah was hell on wheels! I really hate being hassled by touts as I walk through and it drove me up the wall. Luckily they've banned touting at all in the Yumbo centre (the mainly gay one) so that was a lot more peaceful although they will still come up to you if you stop and look at the menu and there was a couple of guys with menus but nothing like the level at Kasbah where it was every two steps.

We've now been out to Playa del Ingles twice and I haven't found any live music bars or indie music places sadly.

hi ive been to playa del ingles several times and never been anywhere playing that type of music its mainly euro dance and r+b. The only place i can think were ive seen live music is brannigans in the irish centre.

Souix city is a great laugh free bbq and open bar in the price and my friends went on the jeep safari excursion and they really enjoyed it.

Hope this helps

Anything changed recently? Coming to Playa del Ingles on Saturday and would have liked to have found a live band.

Closest thing I found was "Turbo Pub" in the Kasbah (2nd Floor).

It's specialises in "hard & heavy" music and you can barely swing a cat in there but they do take requests.

However, "Wonderwall" was greeted with raised eyebrows by the regulars though...

Anyway, the beer's cheap and a very nice bald chap greets you:

Thanks stooby, will take a look in there. As for the very nice bald chap - must be all the headbanging he does I suppose?

Hi

We returned from GC yesterday, We found it hard to find anywhere with entertainment along the strip of bars and restaurants in PdI, so much so that we saw an Elvis tribute twice. There were a couple of people playing keyboards in restaurants. There was music in the Yumbo which started late but we ended up in Ricky´s Cabaret Bar watching a drag show which was very good. We also went to the Kasbah but it was so dirty and small we left without going into any of the bars.

While it´s fair to say we are no longer teenagers we are residents of Tenerife and one of our favorite acts is Soundchaser videospider.tv/Videos/Detail/119074610.aspx

Strange that there's no live music like this on the island, or if there is it seems to be hard to track down.

We go to places like Albufeira and there are probably four or five excellent covers bands to choose from at different venues every night.

Even in laid back Nerja on the Costa del Sol last weekend we found several bars with good live music (for me that's guitars and drums like in your video clip and not a solo singer with backing tapes!)

Thanks for the info anyway.
