If you stumbled upon this website looking for live music, you definitely came to the right place. The original concept of this site was to help locals find local venues around town to see local bands that usually play without any cover charges and could therefore result in a “cheap night out” on the town. However, whether you are a local resident or a tourist to South Florida, no website covering live music would be complete without some mention of the larger venues where national touring acts often come into town for a “one night stand” and entertain hundreds, if not thousands, of ticket holding fans.
As an added bonus, look for the Goldstar ad below for Half-Price tickets to local shows.
