Good places for live music around Zurich?

I was wondering if anyone knows some decent places with live music in either Zurich or Winterthur? Mostly interested in rock/jazz/folk, and maybe even some 80's classics. Just anything except techno or metal really.

Any of them free?

Yes, but then you'd have to pay for the water.

Hey,
For Jazz music I'd recommend Mehrspur (every Wednesday eve) and Trattoria & Soul.
Cheers

Re: Good places for live music around Zurich?

On Tuesday evenings, Cafe Henrici hosts touring bands. The music varies from week to week... so far this season I have seen jazz, rock and blues there. It is a really nice place to spend the evening. And yes, it is free.

Re: Good places for live music around Zurich?

I know for sure that there is live music in the Zug Casino often with a full Jazz program. Zug is a short train ride from Zurich but worth the time for a good night out.

Re: Good places for live music around Zurich?

Kennedys -The new Irish bar in Zurich near Sihlpost is going to have live music soon. I'm not sure what type yet as it only opened last week.

Good to know about Kennedy's-- anyone know of places near Stadlehofen with live music? I live in district 7 and would like to find a place close to home.

Re: Good places for live music around Zurich?

Next live music at Kennedy's is on both Friday 7th and Saturday 8th of December. Starting around 21.00 hours, entrance is free. The set will be made up mainly of a good mix of covers, with a coule of his own new tracks thrown in.
