In Boston, this list is always changing and growing. It is comprised of Boston area live venues that I check weekly for local music listings. These are venues that offer live music of varying rock styles some, most, or all of the time. While it is not all of the live venues that exist, you can send details via email.

Also, please remember to send new music and shows listings in time for Sunday night’s show.
