Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar

Can I confess something to the two of you who read this? I ended up missing live music way more than I anticipated. So much so, that I already have tickets to three events and will shortly be adding a fourth to my list! I’m so excited to see these bands live again and I’m sure these shows are going to be super cathartic for everyone involved! Insert some squealing *here*

Anyways, seeing as how I’m not posting weekly streams like Kristen, I’m just going to keep updating this massive calendar list. Posts might not come every week unless I have something new to add. So, don’t worry I didn’t run away. I just don’t want to interrupt the live streams posts with the same calendar list. Buy concert tickets! All my love. ~ A

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar

Hi All!!

I’m alive. I hope you’re alive too. I know it’s been a while since I’ve been here and to be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to come back. I mean, the whole landscape of music consumption has changed!! I figured you all would be following your favorite bands and would be able to stay more up to date than I ever could. On top of that, we have my other half totally killing it with her calendar. However, a light has begun to emerge at the other side of all the madness and the time felt right to return. So, without further ado, here’s what’s coming to San Diego so far (!!!)

Amanda’s SD Calendar

I know I was a bit abrupt with my post last week. I apologize. Between all the bands I follow throwing out streaming options all over the place with constant additions and changes, I didn’t really know what to do with myself or this calendar. Live music is still canceled for the foreseeable future but there are so many bands and artists doing pop-ups all over the place. They are even just hopping online to chat. I trust you all follow the bands you love and for me to make you a list, especially when times and dates are changing all over the place, it seems like a futile effort on my end. However, if you want a more curated list, you can check out Kristen’s calendar here.

She’s also keeping it updated throughout the week. So, if you know her and love her and her calendar is doing it for you, hug her when this is all over. Okay? Okay.

I trust you all to be following the various socials of all the bands you love. Please keep in mind that you can set notifications on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, so you never miss anything.

For Instagram:

  • Go to the page of the artist you like who you want to keep close tabs on.
  • Tap the “following” button and you’ll see a pop-up including; add to close friends, notifications, mute, restrict, and unfollow.
  • Tap “notifications” and adjust accordingly.
  • Don’t forget to adjust settings on devices to get notifications if you’ve previously turned them off.

For Facebook:

  • Go to the page of the artist.
  • Click the “following” button and adjust to see first. (See a pattern?)
  • Don’t forget to adjust settings on devices to get notifications if you’ve previously turned them off.

You can also check on Bandisintown for events and notifications, but they aren’t the most accurate. I’ve also seen StubHub put on streaming concerts. There’s a lot going on out there. Artists have also been saving their live videos to their Instagram profiles so you can rewatch or view at a later time if you’re unavailable when it’s live. It’s a weird and wild time out there, so find something that works for you.

Be safe and much love to you all.

Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 3/16-3/22

UPDATE: ALL BARS AND CLUBS IN CALIFORNIA ARE DIRECTED TO CLOSE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

Local shows for the next few weeks are likely to be impacted by the Coronavirus. Please double-check and triple check the social media and websites of all bands and venues you plan on attending as this is an ever-changing situation. Again, please hold on to your concert tickets if possible for the rescheduled date if there is one. Please support your artists by buying merch, streaming, buying albums in iTunes, and so on. Feel free to support our venues by buying merch from the venues. Perhaps encourage your bands to pop on StageIt (remember that?) or other live streaming means as a way to put on a show. Hold on kids, we’ll get there.

Live Show Updates

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, shows all over San Diego and Los Angeles areas have been impacted.

For San Diego show goers, please check the social media accounts of the bands and venues you’re planning to attend for the latest updates. Venues like Observatory, Observatory North Park, Music Box, House of Blues, and even Casbah are likely to be impacted. Shows at Soda Bar, Bar Pink, and other smaller venues are less likely but please check socials to verify.

For shows in and around the Los Angeles area, please refer to this post from Buzzbands for the latest updates. Please note that all AEG and Livenation events have been cancelled/postponed. Again, please check social media to confirm.

Please be safe out there and support our local scenes/artists however you can: download some music, stream more music, buy some merch. Anything that helps bands support themselves makes a difference. See you at the next show.
