The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

Everybody’s gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday! This edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator found most of our favorite bands taking the day off for the game besides two lonely bands performing this Sunday with Natural Vibrations continuing the Puff Puff Pass Tour in California while Nahko and Medicine for the People play at Wanderlust Festival in New Zealand.

Heavy and Light featuring Dustin KensrueThis is a good weekend to tune it down a little before filling up on beer and wings all day on Super Bowl Sunday. Florida will get the perfect opportunity to do just that tomorrow at The House of Blues for Heavy and Light in Orlando. Heavy and Light, sponsored by To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), is an acoustic lineup featuring many of today’s popular artists from other genres and helps to spread an important message.

Heavy and Light: An Evening of Songs, Conversation and Hope is headlined by Jon Foreman (of Switchfoot) and followed up by The Summer Set, Dustin Kensrue (of Thrice), and Matthew Perryman Jones. These acoustic performances will be accompanied by spoken word poet Sierra DeMulder and TWLOHA founder Jamie Tworkowski. Jon Foreman’s alternative music background and Dustin Kensrue’s punk and folk music background has always been a unique and pleasant combination at past Heavy and Light events.

TWLOHA was founded to help those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide…it represents, hope, courage, recovery and honesty. The non-profit conducts a number of events around the country including its flagship event Heavy and Light in Los Angeles and Orlando and other music events, fundraising walks and runs, public speaking tours, and much more. “TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.”

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!
