Bars in Soho/Village -maybe live bands

Hey all:

I am travelling down to Manhattan with a friend May 9th weekend.

He's not a foodie but loves to hang out at bars with more artistic/creative people - NOT the trendy, look at me kinda crowd.

Therefore, I am at a loss as to what to do with him :) Live music venues would be good too.

And cheap, simple eating places too. I really don't want to scare him :)

I am thinking the village or soho but we can go anywhere - we are staying at 70 park avenue
