Live Entertainment in the North State: November 27 – December 3

The Double Crossed Band plays the Post Office Saloon in Redding on Friday, November 29, and on Saturday, November 30.

Aaron, the outstanding bartender at Cedar Crest Brewing in Redding, told me recently that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest weekday of the year in bars across America. This really has nothing to do with live entertainment this weekend, except that if you feel like one of those who need to escape from pre-Thanksgiving stress, you might go where you can also listen to Mumblefinger, Francisco Bobadilla, the open mic at Fratelli’s Pizza, comedian Matt Gubser, Shyy, or The Coyotes on this very Wednesday evening. Enjoy your week, and thanks for supporting our live entertainment scene.
