LegionnaireSaloon.com
In just two years, The Legionnaire Saloon has become an Uptown fixture, with regular DJ nights in the main bar and an upstairs loft for live performances. The musical fare is eclectic — recent bills have included traditional Irish music, scrappy local garage rock, and rap — but it’s telling of the bar’s stylistic allegiance that its two-year anniversary event is a joint effort with Where It’s At, the regular funk and soul party. The Greasetraps and Gene Washington & the Ironsides — horns, rhythm section, and vocals put in the service of soul — are scheduled to perform upstairs. The bands’ resident DJ counterparts, including emissaries from local funk-forward record shops such as Vamp, will exhume the genre’s gorgeous roots downstairs. The Legionnaire opened in March 2013 without street signage. On Saturday, decades and eras are sure to slip away.
