Dub's Honky Tonk
Dub’s was opened in 1964 by James “Dub” Thomas. He is credited with establishing a new kind of live music venue (including topless dancing and Thursday night’s “mini-skirt contest”, officiated by Dub himself) to what was then a small, sleepy college town. Dub booked acts like Black Sabbath, The Eagles, Bob Seger, Molly Hatchet and of course a very young Tom Petty. This was a place for the locals, but U.F. students would make the trip as well, and there were often “differences of opinion” between them and the Alachuans. But, mostly, good times and epic music prevailed at Dub’s. Gainesville has not seen another spot like it since Dub’s passing in 1990. Now all the students do is study. What an era they missed at Dub’s!
