Someone point me in the right direction. I'm 21 and enjoy your typical pop clubs where the DJ is spinning mostly EuroDance based music blended with a little pop Hip-Hop and Techno. Some awesome sports bars would be nice too!!! I'm open to all suggestions though.
A good local zine, available at many locations (free) around town is Playgrounds, an arts & entertainment monthly:

While the vents I cover don't exactly match what you're looking for, these are some of the better starting points in this area, for getting out and meeting folks, and seeing some of the local talent:
==Open Mic & Talent Show Summer Schedule==
Red Barn (Hwy 280 in Phenix City) is the latest on the talent show
list, go there Wednesdays for their open mic, hosted by Gary Parmer,
where there's also some fine food being grilled up, as well. Music &
poetry on the deck out back, under the stars. There's also a pool
right near the stage, for those who want to jump in and cool down.
Gary & his Trio also perform out on the deck the last Saturday of each
Tuesday nights are the night for SoHo's classic open mic hosted by the
Legendary Tripp Wrigley.
Thursday night is perhaps the finest night of all to catch some of the
great talent available in this area in two locations on both sides of
town: At Del Ranch in Smiths Station, Alabama, starting at 9pm until
about 1am every Thursday & Sunday nights, so if anyone out there is a
musician or singer, bring your songs and instruments and join in!

4920 Lee Road 430
Smiths Station, AL
Or, closer to Columbus there is also the early sidewalk talent show at
Fountain City Coffee at 1007 Broadway in Columbus, which starts at
7pm. This one is hosted by Brian Mallard & Julian Hernandez, and is
also an open mic, so, again, if anyone out there is a musician or
singer, bring your songs and instruments. This one gets crowded fast
so get there early to sign up for performance, or drop by anytime
during the night for some coffee and a listen to some of the best
talent the Columbus area has to offer.
