Devoted pickers can find a little slice of Memphis down by the BQE. Jalopy abounds with stringed instruments of all stripes, hanging from the ceiling and lining the walls. A tiny bar plies concertgoers with beer, wine, and coffee drinks, but the focus is the intimate theater in the back. Even in the last row of audience church pews, you feel close to the band onstage. Shows go on most nights, and range from folk to bluegrass to straight country, with a cover that rarely jumps above $15. If the music inspires you to pick up a banjo, Jalopy can help you there, as well, with evening classes, instrument rentals, and sales.
