Live Music in the North State: August 1 – August 7

Giraffes? Giraffes! will appear at The Dip in Redding Tuesday, August 7.

It's been one hell of a week, and for too many Shasta and Trinity County residents, it's been a week in hell. May you find peace and healing.

Of course, it's a particularly good idea to check with venues before venturing out this week. As I learn about cancellations due to the Carr Fire, I will post them here.

      Thanks for letting me know, LeRoy. I feared that might be the case, but decided to post your events out of hope.

  2. In our darkest hours, there’s music. This is such a welcome post this week.

    Thank you, Hal, for spending hours when our system was broken to post something that should have taken minutes. And I thought I was stubborn! I appreciate you so much!

      Thanks for checking in with me last night, Doni. It was great timing–I was to the point of talking to myself, and the language was getting colorful. 🙂
