Tempe offers an eclectic  array of music throughout the town.  I enjoy many different styles from appreciating Classic orchestra to getting down with some good ‘ol Dub Step. There are great opportunities to find really great shows and see unique artists. I will highlight three of my favorite spots in Tempe to check out great music and some upcoming dates to remember.

Tempe Marketplace- 2000 E. Rio Salado Pkwy.
This place is more than just a shopping area and great place to find bites to eat. Hosting a great atmosphere with waterfalls, couches, and fire pits, there are two different areas that offer music from regular artists every Friday and Saturday nights and the best part is that it’s FREE!

Saturday January 19th
Peppermint James
District Stage, 7-10pm

M Squared- Acoustic Adult Contemporary Duo
B&N Fountain, 7-9pm

Friday January 25th
Think Horses- Original Alternative and Cover Band
District Stage, 7-10pm

Grady Soiné- Easy Listening Keyboardist

Colton Avery- Original Indie Guitarist/Vocalist

Sail Inn 26 S. Farmer Ave.

Sail Inn offers a unique, edgy, funky vibe to itself. This is one of my favorite dive bars, that has been around for many years, and offers live music every weekend and most weekdays. It has an indoor stage and larger one on their outdoor patio in the back.

Saturday January 19th-The Shammy’s, Arden Park Roots, STRANGER, and KINDREAD

Friday, January 25- Evil Beaver, The Venomous Pinks, Gomi, and The Oxford Coma

Saturday January 26th- Xtra Ticket and Spafford

Marque Theatre730 North Mill Avenue

You can’t go wrong with this venue. I have seen man great shows here and many artists well known. You might pay more for a ticket but you will recognize many bands and will never be disappointed with a show. This indoor standing venue provides great opportunity to enjoy your favorite show up-close!

Tuesday, January 22nd – Social Distortion

Saturday February 2nd– Pentatonix
