Live Music in New Mexico this week.

Spring at last!

In the coming weeks, we will be switching from a listing format to a link format where you can find listings in your area for live music. We will be using listings from Albuquerque’s the Weekly Alibi, the Albuquerque JournalABQtodo, the Santa Fe New Mexican, SantaFe.comsantafean.comlivetaos.com, Las Vegas NM Music, Raton Main Street, RatonNM.gov, FarmingtonNM.orgFarmingtonnm.org/eventsAztecNMTheGallupCalendar.com, The Gallup Chamber of CommerceSoccorromusic.com,The Las Cruces Sun, New Mexico True, Concert Calendar USA, EventfulBandsintown, and adding new lists periodically. Simply click onto a link and find out what is happening in your neck of the woods. We will also post links to Facebook groups dedicated to live music in New Mexico.

As we head into 2019 we want to remind everyone that music is one of the strongest economic tools we have in New Mexico. There are hundreds of brewpubs throughout the state that feature live music and hundreds of New Mexico musicians that live and work here performing, recording and writing. When you support live music, purchase music produced in New Mexico or see a film that features New Mexico artists or compositions, you are helping to sustain those recording studios, musicians, music stores, instrument makers, producers, engineers and songwriters that bring people to the Land of Enchantment from around the world. Make it your resolution in the new year patronize those venues who pay their artists.

Some of the top name acts on earth are making their way through New Mexico including  The Beach Boys, Mavis Staples, Death Cab for Cutie, Styx, Kiss, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Michael McDonald, John Mellancamp and many more. New acts are being added everyday.

In addition, there are hundreds of live music venues throughout New Mexico offering almost every style of music imaginable. The venues listed support live music by paying their performers. When you attend a live show, you support live music and the artists that make their living playing music. Thank you for supporting live music.
