  • Ever have a week sneak up on you and you think that maybe this one will be your chance to stay in and take it easy and then you look at the upcoming shows and you’re like “Holy fuck, what was I thinking?” Yeah, that’s this week. The shows have been raging all week long, but I’ve tried to catch nearly everything I could from Wednesday to Saturday night…thankfully, you get to rest on Sunday (maybe). You could catch a showing of Dig! at Crescent Ballroom on Sunday to take that thought right out of our head. You could also...

  • There are only a few days left to make all your dreams come true! Well, maybe not your dreams, but my dream and a lot of other peoples’ dreams that want to hear a new full length Field Tripp album that is actually recorded in the studio! I honestly consider Dan Tripp to be one of the finest songwriters that I know and I know a lot of songwriters. The man has literally more albums on his hard drive at home that he’s recorded than most artists release in a lifetime. But that won’t do this time. No, we need...

    Please Help Field Tripp Record Their Album!!!

  • Spring has sprung and there are shows pretty much every night of the week this week. Thursday and Friday are the craziest nights on this list and a lot of tough decisions will need to be made. Either way, it appears there actually aren’t any festivals this weekend so it’s back to the venues for your live local music needs. Also, there are a fair amount of unusual venues found here and some I’ve never even heard of. Let’s get to it… When & Where: Tuesday, March 22, 8pm at Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: You have a band...

  • One festival weekend down and so many more to go. This week has a festival of sorts, but it’s broken up into two days with a Friday in between them, and I guess it’s all in the spirit of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on the actual day, so there you go. Still, festivals aside, this week is stacked with great shows to see, a few record releases, a tribute to a recently lost rising star and an unexpected reunion. Check it all out below… When & Where: Thursday, March 17th, 8pm at Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: Well this...

  • What’s going ahhhn? Seriously? This week’s live, local music seems to be ultra compressed into the weekend where festival after festival after festival abound. Seriously, it’s almost enough to make my mind go into hiding. I’m guessing there aren’t a lot of shows on the weeknights this week because everyone is gearing up for whatever festival they are playing Friday, Saturday or Sunday. One thing that is nice is that there are some sweet Sunday shows for those not attending some festival or for those not completely exhausted by then. Either way, here are all the ridiculous options to be...

  • I wanted to get this out earlier in the week, but I was legitimately on vacation and I’m trying to pretend I didn’t miss out on any spectacular shows. If I did, I don’t want to know about it. Luckily, this weekend is jam packed with some great shit all over the place. We even get an ever increasingly rare Sunday night show that will rock your socks off. Check out all the lovely sounds around your town… When & Where: Friday, March 4th, 7pm at Crescent Ballroom Reasons To Attend: I can do no further justice to this show...
