Live music is back.
After a year of livestreams, many are ready to return to in-person shows. When the Evening Muse announced their first shows back, for example, tickets sold out in an hour.
Below is a list of where and when you can get your taste of live in-person music in April in and around the Queen City.
Be smart: If you do plan on attending an in-person performance, please do so responsibly. Wear a mask when you’re not eating or drinking and stay a safe distance from others.
