Your Mom’s House is a rad little bar smack dab in the middle of Cap Hill. The independently owned and operated venue has live music most nights from a variety of touring and local bands. Housed inside the remnants of Snake Pit, Pearl’s, and Beauty Bar, they’ve traded the dryer chairs for stage lights and some awesome artwork. It’s a great spot to see intimate shows and enjoy some cheap drinks. Next Saturday, the 14th, Your Mom’s House welcomes Space Bacon, with special guests MoonRadish, Mr. Specific, and Slidewok.
