In the old Red Blood Cub space, Tuckers' Blues proves that the blues isn't dead in Deep Ellum -- or Dallas. It's hard to believe that this former punk and hardcore club made such a striking transition, because at Tuckers' the vibe is so warm, inviting and, well, bluesy, from the low lighting to the intimate candlelight seating to the friendly staff. Located next to Twisted Root Burger Company, the club is tucked off the street, though its long blue awning helps identify it. Most nights, the cover's $10. Open most Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings after 8 p.m., just check Tuckers' calendar for which local or visiting blues legend (or up-and-comer) will be gracing the stage.
