The Flea opens; music returns

The Flea has been open for not quite a month, and it's already become a musician-friendly place.

The new bar occupies the space of the former Harlow's at Harrison and Kimbrough in Springfield MO. It looks and feels like Harlow's, the folks are just as friendly, the music is just as good, and the TV's are bigger and wider.

At The Flea, the outside merges with the inside. Patrons can take a smoke break
on the patio without missing a note. Paul Rose, left, and Ryan Boone, right)

Chad Graves of the Hillbenders also sat in with twangy-bluesy
contributions to the jazzy, funky jam tunes.
