Non-Tourist Trap places to listen to Fado

I really enjoy Fado and am going to Lisbon next month. The last time I was there I was told to go to touristy restaurants and paid high prices for dinner with Fado. Could anyone suggest some local places where one can enjoy Fado without costing a small fortune? Many thanks.

Also, you have lot's of "colectividades" (neighbourhood clubs) that still perform amateur fado, such as "Maritimo Lisboa Clube" (in Bica), "Lusitano Clube", "Lisboa Clube Rio de Janeiro" (Bairro Alto), "Grupo Sportivo Adicense" (Alfama).
