Upcoming Live Shows Archive

  • 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...

  • I spent most of last week dancing with Influenza A and I wasn’t able to sit upright for most of the week, much less get one of these handy dandy guides out. The flu has now moved on and there are a ton of shows coming up this week, so I thought I’d spread the good news. We have a lot going on: three record releases alone this weekend and an album being recorded live! There’s a lot more than that though, but you can check it out below.

  • Well, the shows have been just as good for the last couple weeks as they were at the start of January, I just had too much other things to write about to squeeze this in. Nevertheless, the rest of this week and the last of the month is shaping up to be just as fantastic. Having a look ahead at February, this year is just going to keep rocking non stop with great shows and fantastic releases for months to come. Check out what you can check out below!

  • Here is another week filled with shows from end to end. One nice detail about this week is there are a lot of charity shows, which means you can see some of your favorite local bands AND make a difference by choosing your show wisely. I wish there were more of these type of events throughout the year, but the holidays are an important time to give to those in need. When & Where: Tuesday, December 8th, 8pm at Crescent Ballroom Reasons To Attend: Sean Mullaney put out a bang up EP this year, I just saw Dylan Pratt last...

  • The good news is that there are a lot of killer shows. The bad news is that due to the holiday, they are all pretty much on Wednesday night, with a few conflicts on Friday night and one big show on Sunday night. That said, I’ve made my choices out of the plethora of options on the two big nights below. I think Saturday I may have a second Thanksgiving since there doesn’t seem to be anything going on, oddly enough.

  • Well, this week is out of control crazy when it comes to catching local live music. So much so that this will be divided into two posts: this one is about all the shows at indie venues around town, the next one will be covering all of the festivals going on between Mesa, Phoenix and Bisbee. Seriously, if there is one weekend where you could legitimately spend the entire time with live music, this is it. It’s also curious that this is the weekend that nearly everyone decided to throw a festival in one way or another. Let’s get to...
