For ear-shattering punk, metal, indie and even hip-hop, GroundZero is the setting for Spartanburg’s most intense nightlife. Here, you can often see the heaviest bands in the world―some that otherwise appear in stadiums―with two or three hundred enthusiastic fans. Kid Rock has played here. So has Slayer and Hank Williams III. Loud and fast, the club is a mecca for music fans sick of cover songs so common in other local venues. Cover is cheap and the alcohol is, too.
