The main dance floor at Clutch Cargo's
Clutch Cargo's jumped on the local scene in the fall of 1996 like the proverbial 5,000-pound club gorilla. Housed in a former church, this 1,400-person capacity club books a variety of national big-name acts during the week. On Saturday nights, the club is a four-level entertainment megaplex, offering up live swing and rockabilly in the lower level martini lounge, retro alternative on the main level, old-school funk on the third level, and techno and electronica in the tippy-top spaces.
