A night at the Filler

On Saturday night I had the chance to go to the Filler for some live music, beer, friends and fun! It was my first time at the Filler and my first time at a type of bar like this!

I have to say I was a bit nervous going. The Filling Station isn’t known as being a posh bar. However I felt completely at home. It felt like a pub, where there are regulars.

On Saturday four local bands were playing live on stage. This included Tempest and Beneath the Kraken!

The bar itself was great. The front area consisted of the bar and pool, while the back had room for a band and a dance floor. I wish more people would have danced, I guess I was the only weird one!

The Filler is never boring. It is one of those bars that has tons of things hanging on the walls (mostly license plates).

They had some other cool things that I thought no longer existed. Like a cigarette machine!

And a pay phone! Remember those?

Its funny, I’m not as cool as I once was, by 11 I was tired and ready to go. So once again I missed Beneath the Kraken playing live!

Luckily my dear friend Ashley, who is an amazing Bozeman photographer, was there to take some amazing shots of this band!

The lead guitarist was also decked out is some weird Americana outfit. Now I really wish I was there!

All in all it was an amazing night, and an amazing place, especially if you like real bars.  I know I will look forward to the next time I can go to the Filling Station in Bozeman, whether it is for live music or just some good company and beer!
