The Calm After the Holidays…

By January 3, 2020 Around the Area, Music

Here is a listing of Altoona area live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, January 3 through Thursday, January 9.

The weekend following New Year’s Day usually tends to be quieter on the area music scene, as venues and performers catch their breath after the excitement of New Year’s Eve and the busy holiday season. But a few performances are taking place during this weekend and upcoming week for those in need of their live music fix.

In the event of inclement weather, please call or use social media to check ahead to make sure the show is still taking place, especially if you are driving any distance to attend.

Check out and support the area live music! And if you celebrate heavily while doing so, please designate a sober driver or call a taxi to get you home.
