GETTING OUT: Live Music in Worcester

Thursday, September 06, 2012

 

Just because summer is coming to a close doesn't mean there isn't a ton of live music to enjoy around Worcester.

With concerts happening on the Worcester Common, inside the Palladium and at several bars around town, there's no excuse not to get out there and take it in. So, here is your guide to the best live music this weekend in Worcester.

DATSIK at The Palladium: 7 pm Thursday

Okay, the definition of live music is shifting a little bit. Now, with the re-emergence of electronic music to the mainstream, DJs are gaining popularity as live acts. The Palladium hosts DATSIK, one of the most accomplished DJs in the biz, churning out seven number one hits and working with artists like the Crystal Method and Wu-Tang Clan.

Tickets start at $22, but will be $25 if you buy them at the door.

Flock of A-Holes at Lucky Dog Music Hall: 8:30 pm Thursday

If you love 80s music and a little attitude, head over to the Lucky Dog to hear one of Worcester's most notorious live acts, Flock of A-Holes. The Flock of Seagulls (and other 80s hits) cover band plays nearly every Thursday at the Lucky Dog, and are a must-see for any young Worcesterite.

Admission is only $5, so stop in to catch the 80s themed fun.

Out to Lunch Concert Series Finale
on the Worcester Common: 11 am Thursday

Due to the July 27th show being rained out, Worcester gets to enjoy one more week of the Out to Lunch Concert Series. This week's headliner is Dale LePage and the Manhattans, a band that will bring some swinging' soul music to the Worcester Common.

The show is free of charge and produced by the City of Worcester and the Worcester Cultural Coalition.

Erin Ollis at Fiddlers' Green Pub and Restaurant: 8:30 pm Friday

Those looking to down a pint and hear an up-and-coming singer/songwriter can head to Fiddlers' Pub for a live performance from Erin Ollis. The talented 21-year-old has roots in pop and country, and has been compared favorably with country star Carrie Underwood.

There is no cover charge, so come over and you may be able to say "I saw her when…" a few years down the road.

Auntie Trainwreck at Jillian's: 9:30 pm Friday

This Worcester-based band rocks venues throughout Central Mass and will be returning to Jillian's this Friday. This eclectic group offers a fun mix of rock and blues, with their own unique attitude added to the mix.

Admission is only $5, but you have to be 18 or older.
