Between the holiday season and the colder weather, things are slowing down on the live music scene just a bit. Slowing down, but not coming to a stop. The music never stops in Madison.

Even as we approach the shortest, darkest day of the year, you can still park your car in one spot downtown and walk to FOUR different live music shows on Friday and Saturday nights!

Hot Tip of the Week

If you are looking to get into the holiday spirit, you might want to check out the special Christmas Show at Mad Paddle Brewery on Friday night. Jerry Wade and his merry band of House Band all-stars will be spreading the good cheer. Oh, and it’s not too soon to start thinking about your New Year’s Eve plans.

As of right now you have options at The Legion, The Lady, Mad Paddle, Red Bike and The Central.
