Where else but at the Eagle can you catch homoerotic biker flicks with one glance and gaze upon the newest spastic punk act with the next? Since it started hosting "Thursday Nite Live" shows years back, the leather bar (and home to an occasional mud wrestling contest) continues to be one of the comfiest rock clubs in town. Standing there, beer in hand, you can hear anything from hippie freak folk to tough-guy butt rock to flaming power pop. And whereas most clubs have a typical layout — stage, bar, open area — the Eagle offers a killer back patio with heat lamps and a fire pit, televisions displaying odd cult films, and the get-down-and-dirty vibe that comes from a bar that treasures the value of big, hairy men.
