Upcoming Live Shows Archive

  • There may not be as many shows this week as there was last week, but that might be because a shit ton of people are attending a festival at some polo field in Indio. That doesn’t mean that it’s still not off the hook. Plus, Saturday is Record Store Day, so if you aren’t blowing your money on Coachella you can do it right in your own backyard with records and maybe catch some live music while you are at it. When & Where: Wednesday, April 13th, 9pm at The Yucca Tap Room Reasons To Attend: Because Marc Norman. Other...

  • This is a blockbuster week for live, local music. There are a ton of records being released this week and one of them I’ve been waiting for for a year, another I’ve been waiting for over four years. There is something to do every single night this week and a myriad of choices to meet your aural pleasures. Essentially, it will be another weekend where you wish that teleportation was a thing. Check out over twenty shows the valley has to offer your ears this week… When & Where: Tuesday, April 5th, 8pm at The Rogue Bar Reasons To Attend:...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.
