[Tagging] music clubs tagging

I live in Nashville, TN, USA.  Since this is a center for the music industry, many restaurants and pubs occasionally have live musicians.  In my opinion, the distinction between a nightclub and a pub would not be whether or not it has live musicians (some of each have live musicians, some of each don't), but rather that a nightclub generally has space used for dancing, a pub generally doesn't.

Im not sure where you live, but around here if you want to see a local
band play live, you goto the local pub.  However, I do agree that a
music venue tag would be good, as there are a number of music venues for
local bands which are suitable for minors but also not all pubs have
live music.  Maybe part of the proposal/discussion can include tagging
those pubs that have live music and those that dont (if known when

A quick search (you did search before writing a proposal, didnt you?)
shows the following pages which might be close to what youre looking
for.  Taginfo suggests > 100 uses combined between amenity=music_venue
and leusire=music_venue.
