Live music can refer to many different things; it could well be some jazz in a lounge café, a pop band in a bar or a punk rock stage concert. Whatever you are looking for, the best way to stay informed is to sign up to our twice-weekly newsletters or grab a copy of our weekly guide. Indeed, concerts and live gigs are usually relayed on billboards, social media and word of mouth so staying up to beat can be a lot of work.
