Shows This Week: October 2 – October 8, 2017

Written by

Music unites us. It makes us feel like we’re not alone; and concerts are a place where we can come together and celebrate life as a community of strangers bonded by one thing (if not many). While what happened in Las Vegas is absolutely horrifying on every level, I think we’d be remiss to not share places where you can be with other music lovers this week. We need each other, and these musicians need you. We’re all in this together.
