We are stoked to announce the next 3 Live and Local Concerts! This is our biggest batch of shows yet!

Come on out on the first Friday of the month from 7-9 pm to hear some of the best and brightest acts Gainesville has to offer. And as always, they're free and all ages!

On February 3, we will partner with Night Before Media to highlight some of the luminaries in Gainesville’s rap and hip-hop scene. Three of the acts performing have been recipients of the MusicGNV Recording Grant, too! Join us as itsQObaby, Fakksonly, Nate Turner, Sky Lucas, and The Lyrical KingKong take the stage!

On March 3, the third Singer-Songwriter Showcase will go down! As always, we feature 10 artists, each performing for 10 minutes. Come discover your new favorite songwriters! Artists performing include: A. Sunroom, Ash, Jenarchy, Trevor Griffin, Mike Llerena, Alivia Hunter, Nolia Joy, Cooper!, Dylan Kadas, and Alyssa Thomas.

On April 7, we are doing something new that we’re excited about. We have put together a showcase of music from the next generation of Gainesville’s musicians and songwriters. We are putting on our first Teen Showcase. We have artists from a variety of genres and styles, but they all share one thing in common, they’re immensely talented teenagers. Artists performing: Breakfast For Dinner, venture, Wyatt Johnson, PRIZILLA, Amber Mackenzie, Princess Charming, Idiots Anonymous, Grant Gravlee, Amarissa Nicole, Buboy, JaydaDrums, and Madi Wallace.

We are stoked for these shows, and hope you are as well!
