I’m always intrigued by “this day in history” type of facts. There’s some sort of immediacy to them that makes you feel connected to the past in a more unique way. That’s why I always like to check the “Shows on This Day in History” in the Live Music Archive.
With the weekend only hours away, many of you will be sure to check out local listings to see where you can get your live music fix. If it’s a slow week in your city or the pocketbook is a little dry, the Archive has you covered.
