Some Live Music Venues Reopen…

Here is a listing of Pennsylvania live music happenings for the weekend and week of Friday, January 8 through Thursday, January 14.

With the holiday season COVID-19-related restrictions lifted on January 4, some live music venues across the area have resumed hosting live musical entertainment, with safety protocols in place. The listing below includes both area live public shows and online live-streaming shows; keep checking back, as this listing will be updated as new shows are announced.

If you are attending a public show, be aware that seating and admission may be limited due to restrictions, and masks and social distancing may be required. Please respect others’ personal space if they wish to socially distance from others.

For online performances, if a “virtual tip jar” situation is available during live streams, please consider tipping these performers, and support them during this time when they cannot earn income playing shows at public venues. Websites for these performers are also listed; please consider purchasing their music digitally or via CD, which is another way to SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!
