Some Info on NH Venues!

Alright…So being originally from NH, I’ve gone around to a fair amount of the local venues/ bars that are open to support local musicians and smaller bands. There are only a couple on here that I haven’t been to…basically I hope this helps all those looking to expand and play music elsewhere.
