  • I went to a show around this time last week and I’ve been dreadfully ill ever since. My hopes is that I get better and can make it to any number of amazing shows on the roster below, because it’s a great way to send off November and welcome December as we count down the remaining days of 2017: The Year.

I’d suggest spending a lot of your Saturday at The Trunk Space if you want the best in bands that are running under the radar and make your indie rock dreams come true. The choices are difficult every night, but maybe you can determine the best place to find the music you love this weekend.
