Live Music in the North State: August 23 – August 29

 

Cold Sweat appears at Silverthorn Resort this Saturday, August 26.

With the kids back in school, our sole outdoor weekly music festival living on through September will be at the Anderson River Park. That said, indoor venues continue to offer great live music in the north state. Venture out from that TV or computer keyboard, and you’ll likely be pleasantly surprised by what our local venues have to offer.
