About Playing Here

What is Playing Here?

Playing Here is a local live music calendar. We’re searching the web to find concerts near you and making it easy for you to find out about live music. If you see anything more we could be doing to help you find out about local live music, please let us know.

How do I submit my band’s concerts?

You can do that here.

How can I find out about bands playing in my area?

Search for your city name, or a local venue name. Registered users can subscribe to email alerts for concerts in any state, city, or venue. Unregistered (and registered) users can subscribe to live music feeds. If no concerts are currently listed in your area, please contact us and we’ll improve our search.

Can I advertise on Playng Here?

If you’re selling something relevant to local live music, sure. Otherwise, no thanks. We’re currently running ads through Google and Project Wonderful, and you should see links near those ads to where you can purchase your own. We’re still working on selling ads more locally and directly; contact us to discuss those options.
