It’s a new year and that means we’ve got a new list of don’t-wanna-miss concerts!  From Classical to Indie, Blue Grass to Electronic, we’ve got you covered with a wide variety of in-person and virtual performances you will not want to miss.

We’ve also curated a playlist with music from the featured artists for you to enjoy as you browse through the events:


Neal Francis (virtual)  | Rock
“‘On his new album In Plain Sight, Neal Francis offers up a body of work both strangely enchanted and painfully self-aware, unfolding in songs sparked from Greek myths and frenzied dreams and late-night drives in the depths of summer delirium.” 
Wednesday, January 12th, 2022 – 9:30PM ET
Cost: $12-16



Rebecca Black  (in-person)  | Pop
“Rebecca Black is an American YouTube personality and pop singer. She gained tremendous fame for her famous song “Friday”. Her first single, “Friday” sold over 442,000 copies in the United States alone.” 
Saturday, January 15th, 2022 – 8PM ET



Men I Trust 🍁  (in-person)  | Indie
“The story of Men I Trust’s rise to indie fame is a bit more abnormal than most. The group initially started without their lead singer. In 2014 producer Dragos Chiriac and bassist Jessy Caron, both Quebec music graduates and high school friends reunited after college and came together to form a duo named Men I Trust. The basics where all there, the dance-inducing, funkiness and soothe demeanor coupled with great vocal performances by frequent guest collaborators offered a range of different song types.”

WizKid (in-person)  | Afrobeats, Reggae

Best Coast (in-person)  | Indie
“With big guitars, direct lyrics, and a pleasantly laid-back attitude, the Los Angeles duo Best Coast play a tuneful version of punk rock that nods toward ’60s pop and ’90s alt rock informed by the sunny days of their hometown.”

Erasure  (in-person)  | Electropop
“Erasure is a synth-based group, but with stronger, more house-oriented dance inclinations, as well as a sharp, accessible sense of pop songcraft. After making their debut with 1986’s Wonderland, the pair’s third album, 1988’s The Innocents, proved to be their U.S. breakthrough”

Blue Rodeo 🍁 (in-person)  | Folk, Roots Rock
“Blue Rodeo remains one of Canada’s foremost rock’n’roll bands more than 30 years after its formation, even though their music owes as much to country (and a bit to the blues) as it does to rock.”

Emmylou Harris & Patty Griffin (in-person)  | Country
