Complex asked me to list the 25 best bars in NOLA. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.
I’d like to give a nod to the Dixie Taverne (RIP). It was a punk/ metal/ dive bar on the corner of Canal and Jeff Davis. I basically grew up in that bar and got to see and play some amazing shows there. It’s also the only bar I’ve ever woken up under the pool table.

Maybe it’ll grow on me.
