The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

The Winter Tours are cranking up the heat and this edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator has plenty of shows around the country for the next three days. The weekend kicks off tonight as Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish continue their headlining tour with Authority Zero, and The Expanders play with Arise Roots and Ital Vibes on The Rhythm City Tours of LA – The Roots of Reggae. And to close out the weekend strong in California is Natural Vibrations with Junior Reid and Karlos Paez (of The B-Side Players) on the Puff Puff Tour, and The Expendables with Fortunate Youth and Katastro on their Winter Blackout Tour.

Beats on the Basin featuring Passafire Grab some friends & head on up the mountain to catch the winner of The Pier’s 2014 Live Artist of the Year Award, Passafire, as they continue their Winter Tour at The Connection Night Club on Snowshoe Mountain this weekend. Attendees will have plenty of time to ski and snowboard with enough time to recover for the show on Friday night and an encore performance on Saturday night. Passafire was voted Live Artist of the Year for very good reasons, so make sure to catch both nights even if you caught one of their 120 shows around the country in 2014!

Snowshoe Mountain Resort plays host to the Beats on the Basin Winter Concert Series and is a featured location on the Mountain Music Trail. Beats on the Basin is an annual concert series held at Snowshoe which also features Shawn Owen Band, The Movement, and Rusted Root in 2015. Being in the heart of the Allegheny Mountains, Snowshoe Mountain also sees plenty of Appalachian artists and is a featured location on the Mountain Music Trail whose vision is “to promote, present, and sustain opportunities for engagement in the authentic mountain music traditions of West Virginia.”

Snowshoe consists of 11,000 acres of wilderness for outdoor play. The ski-resort rests at an elevation of 4,848 feet with 1,500 feet of vertical drop. Riders may have trouble exploring all that the mountain has to offer with three distinct ski areas, 14 lifts, 57 trails, and over 250 ski-able acres. If that’s not enough, take one of the special mountain tours on snowmobiles, RZRs, or a snow-cat. The mountain even has plenty of family-friendly activities for the kids including Kid’s Night Out so Mom and Dad don’t have to worry during the Passafire show. And if you prefer to stay off the slopes and inside where it’s warm, The Village on the mountaintop has lots of dining and shopping with over 20 restaurants and over 10 stores.

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
