Decompress with Music this Month

Posted by Kelly Holck on Wednesday, February 13th, 2019 at 2:28pm.

How do you decompress?

Do you house a stress ball in your desk drawer? Do you head out to the woods and let nature soothe you? Or, do you throw on your favorite song, like me, and sing/dance it out? Better yet, put me in a music venue with a crowd of people who are all in that room for (ultimately) the same reason, and that show can make every stress in my mind disappear for approximately three hours.

Music lovers / de-stressers are lucky to live in Madison.

Not only do we constantly have new and awesome bands coming to town, but we have multiple venues to choose from that reside in the city. 

Because the next few months will likely continue to be the arctic freeze that the past month has been, it'll be hard to find relaxation outdoors for many of you. Therefore, you'll have to resort to indoor activities and events. To help my friends who struggle from ball-of-stress-itis and/or the winter blues, I've put together a list of the upcoming shows in Madison area. Whether you live in the Madison area currently or not, these are some shows you won't want to miss. 

Ticket pricing and availability as of February 13 at 11:26AM. Click headliner/tour for more information about each individual show.
