Unlike the restaurant, Blackhawk Room at Bier Stube is not widely publicized but it is a hit among music lovers in the know. This intimate space has hosted touring musicians and bands.

This venue opened in the 1940s under the name Rocket Theatre. It closed in the 1990s with the name Capri and re-opened in 2005 as Rocket Theatre only to be closed up another time in 2006. It has once again re-opened, thanks to the efforts of ComedySportz who began leasing the spot at the end of 2010.
The Horseshack in downtown Rock Island is quite an unconventional platform for upcoming local and national independent bands. Adopted by the website Daytrotter.com as their recording studio in 2006, this state-of-the-art studio has hosted the recordings of more than 2000 sessions by various indie bands. During the sessions, each band records four songs which are then available for downloads and live streaming on the website on payment of a small fee. The list of artists/ bands who have recorded their songs here is endless and growing as the days go by. And if you want to witness these sessions in progress, then you can walk down to the studio and watch the bands record their songs. A unique concept, indeed! Visit the Daytrotter's website for more information.
