I have to say that unless things have changed since living there, Cardiff lacks a huge amount of live music. You can usually find something going on at Dempseys, opposite the Castle.

The Welsh club (Clwb Ifor Bach) also has regular live music sessions.

Hopefully others will think of some others...

The Live Lounge as Rhooseboy said is really good, also O'Neills in St Mary St has live music and a great atmosphere.

all of the above are good. seen some great bands in O'neils and had loads of fun in live lounge lately.

The Wharf often has good bands as well, but that is a bit further out.

It depends I suppose on which part your staying in and what sort of music you are into, that said there is not a great deal of choice for live music, most pubs in the suburbs now have live music on a friday or saturday night these are not the best singers, in the centre Dempsys, Bar fly (if it still there) Club ifor bach all these sometimes have acts on, I think the Welsh club ifor bach used to have the most and some of the acts arn't that bad there, it is in Womamby street which is a small lane leading away from the castle, or off quay street leading towards the castle

There are a handful of top-flight professional jazz musicians in Cardiff - the best known are probably Paula Gardiner and Lee Goodall - and you usually can hear fine music from that team, as well as good out-of-town bands at Cafe Jazz in the Sandringham hotel on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. http://www.cafejazzcardiff.com/index.html. Trad and blues there on other nights.
