Winter Storm Live Music!

Here is a listing of Altoona area live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, January 18 through Thursday, January 24.

The big topic of conversation heading into this weekend is the major winter weather event that is expected to impact the region beginning on Saturday afternoon. As of the time of this posting, most weather forecasters seem to agree that the Altoona area may see at least a foot of snow from this event. A number of area live music events are scheduled for Saturday and Saturday night, but could be impacted by any heavy snowfall. If you are considering taking in one of these events, you may wish to call ahead or check on social media to be sure that the event is still happening and has not been cancelled. (This listing will be updated for cancellations as information becomes available.)

One major area event that was scheduled for this weekend has been postponed. Downtown Bedford, Incorporated’s sixth annual “Feel the Heat Chili & Soup Cook-Off” event has been moved from this weekend to Saturday, March 9 due to the impending weather. Tickets already purchased will be honored on March 9; anyone needing a refund should contact Downtown Bedford, Incorporated.

For outdoor shows, in the event of inclement weather, please call or use social media to check ahead to make sure the show is still taking place, especially if you are driving any distance to attend.

Check out and support the area live music! And if you celebrate heavily while doing so, please designate a sober driver or call a taxi to get you home.
