The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator!

Being from San Diego, the holiday season often means the kickoff of desert season and this weekend is definitely a good time to visit the American Southwest to play in the sand and catch some great reggae, rock, and acoustic shows! The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator has concerts and festivals for the next three days with Tatanka and New Kingston in Colorado, Unwritten Law in Nevada, and Tribal Seeds, Ballyhoo!, Fortunate Youth, and The Expanders playing all over the Southwest.

Fortunate Youth Fall with Friends TourBeaches, deserts, and mountains are all popular reasons to visit the American Southwest but this weekend will have one more reason to add to the list…lots of great music! Whether you’re in Arizona, California, Colorado, or Nevada, there’s bound to be a reggae, rock, or acoustic show near you.

This weekend’s big winner is California with multiple must-see shows. Fortunate Youth, The Expanders, and Thrive will be heading down from the Bay Area to continue the Fall With Friends Tour in So Cal. And if that is not enough, Michael Franti will be touring So Cal as well on Friday and Saturday. Catch a special acoustic performance by Michael Franti and Ethan Tucker in So Cal as well with two performances of the One Heart One Soul Tour in Solana Beach and San Juan Capistrano.

California may have one-up on fun in the water but its got plenty of competition for this weekend’s music lineup. Arizonans can head outside to catch some ray’s at the Concert in the Park with Fayuca or head over to the westside for a free acoustic set by (Official) Jason DeVore. For even more fun in the sun, the C.A.S.A. Block Party will kickoff after the Arizona State vs. Washington State football game on the infamous Mill Avenue in Tempe, hopefully celebrated a Sundevil win with all the fans. And for those already sick of the desert heat, head up the hill for some cool mountain air in Flagstaff to catch the Representing Fall Tour with Tribal Seeds, Ballyhoo!, and Gonzo w/ Beyond iSight.

Don’t stop in Flagstaff! If you enjoy the crisp mountain air, keep driving and head out to Colorado. Denver can catch Tatanka on Friday and Colorado Springs will get to see New Kingston on the Kingston City Tour at Sunshine Studios Live in Colorado Springs to close out the weekend on Sunday.

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!
