Here is a listing of Altoona area live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, February 7 through Thursday, February 13.

SnowFest will feature plenty of snow-related activities; including snowboard and ski demos, a “Hole in One/Closest to the Pin” contest to test winter golfing skills, a “Dummy Downhill” contest, a winter mountain bike challenge. , snow tubing activities and more. Live music kicks off on Friday evening with Chad Patterson at Mueller’s Pub, followed by acoustic duo Lauren & Joe at Mueller’s Pub on Saturday afternoon, and the band 4th Street at the Blue Knob Clubhouse on Saturday night.

Otherwise, this weekend presents a busy slate of live music around the area, with many area band and solo artist favorites in action. So if you need a quick cabin fever remedy, see the listing below, pick a show, and enjoy live music this weekend!

For outdoor shows, 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.
