Live Music to Warm You Up!

By November 5, 2021 Music

Here is a listing of area live music and online music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, November 5 through Thursday, November 11.

Now that it is cold enough in the season to scrape frost from windshields, warm up from the chill by browsing the schedule below and heading inside to enjoy some live music happenings!

Altoona native son and former NBC “The Voice” contestant Jimmy Mowery is back in the area this weekend; see him at Primanti Brothers’ Altoona location on Friday evening or at Double Tap Indoor Gun Range on Saturday afternoon.

Lots of other favorites are on the area stages this weekend; one that is not playing locally this weekend is Felix & the Hurricanes, who are performing next to the ocean in North Carolina. Taking their place on Sunday at the Black & Gold Tavern will be rising Cambria County rock’n’rollers Stacy & the Rejects.

So pick out a show or two or three from the listing below, and SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!
