With warmer weather finally creeping up on us, it’s time to head outdoors.
Well, head outdoors to head back inside and check out some sweet bands.
Just before summer and the Warped Tour, a bunch of bands head out on tour to bring you and me some sweet music.
Next weekend, Pittsburgh pop-punk band Punchline will be playing a double feature (sort of).
On Saturday April 16, Punchline will be playing a matinee show at Cambridge’s Middle East.
Starting at 1 p.m., Death of Paris, Bright and Early, I Call Fives and Punchline will be rocking the stage in the Upstairs portion of the Middle East.
Tickets are $10 in advanced and day of show.
But don’t you fear, if you miss your first chance to catch the excellent Punchline, Sunday April 17 is a new day. The band will be playing at Firehouse 13, 41 Central St. in Providence, RI.
The show is also $10 and another early show starting at 2:30 p.m. Punchline will likely hit the stage around 10 p.m. with local bands and their tour mates hitting the stage earlier than that.
Another worthwhile band to see live, Bayside will be playing a show in Pawtucket, RI at the Met Café on Thursday, April 21. The band will be playing 95.5 WBRU’s Cheap Date series so the tickets will only be a mere $9.55.
She Rides and Kodiak Attack will be opening for Bayside. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
The “On Your Side” Tour featuring A Rocket To The Moon, Anarbor, Runner Runner, Go Radio and Valencia will be hitting up the Showcase Live in Foxborough, MA on Saturday, April 23. Tickets are only $23.
And don’t forget about Record Store Day.
On Saturday, April 16, Record Store Day invites bands to perform in stores all over the country.
The New England area’s independent record store Newbury Comics will house some of these aforementioned performances.
Local up and coming band Transit will be performing at Newbury Comic’s Norton, MA location. Between the Buried and Me, TV on the Radio and Buffalo Tom will also be performing at Newbury Comics locations around the area.
And if there are no performances near you, stop in to your local record store and pick up special releases especially for Record Store Day.
So whether you’re looking for some live music or a brand new vinyl, the season is upon us.
