For decades, the CC Club's jukebox was legendary. Back in the mid-'70s, employees from the record store across the street would load it up with new releases, and bands like the 'Mats would stock it with their latest singles. When a local group's record showed up in rotation, it was a sure sign they had made it. But then, in 2011, the bar's longtime owners swapped out the CD juke for a digital one. Suddenly, barflies had access to 3,000 songs — but not as many local ones. In May 2013, the CC Club changed hands, and three months later, the bar's new owners gave regulars cause for a toast: They traded the TouchTunes machine for an old CD juke, and started re-stocking it with local music, trading free beer for CDs. Today, while nursing a drink near bar close, patrons can flip through CDs from Hüsker Dü and Public Enemy — or from local newbies Ginkgo, whose debut, Manopause, is stocked next to the Beastie Boys. While the music plays, look around for the next Tommy Stinson dancing.

Ask what happen to the C C? How could Lynn Gordon. It wasn't even a year. Her 95% employee turn- over just went up! What a joke :(
