"The Pool" provides unique music venue.


Central High Apartments in downtown South Bend are home to one of the most unique spots in the city.

"The Pool" not only hosts bands and musicians from all over the country, but roommates Gus Bennett and Dena Woods also call it home. 

"We do host acoustic music shows regularly. We form shows basically around touring bands. And then we just open up our home as a community space for people to come and enjoy the music," Woods says. 

For Gus, what started as an apartment search has turned into a passion. He never imagined hosting musicians and fans under his roof. 

"For many of them it's a livelihood. They are on the road, they're playing to live. So if they can make a few bucks playing in a swimming pool, I want to help them out," Bennett says.

The fans who come to the pool are music lovers who enjoy the unique setting and the eclectic acts.

Everyone from the Mayor to up-and-coming bands have made this deep-end their stage.

The South by South Bend music festival continues into Saturday night, and you can find more information and buy tickets here.
