Gainesville FL Live Music & Entertainment Calendar. Find the best in Live Bands, Karaoke Open Jams Tonight this weekend and beyond!

Gainesville has a loud and proud romance with live music.

Rock n Roll Hall of Famers Tom Petty, Stephen Stills and Don Felder (of the Eagles) called the place home at various times. Sister Hazel, ska-punkers Less than Jake, even the soulful Minnie Riperton did, too.

With the University of Florida and Santa Fe College piping generations of 20-somethings into the night scene, the city’s bars and clubs have always embraced local and touring bands.

Punk rockers especially are at home here. Each fall since 2002, on the weekend when the titanic Florida-Georgia football game in Jacksonville drains the city of Gator fans, thousands of punk fans pour in and take over hotels, stages and sofas.

Yes, Gainesville is a college town and much of the music is at high-decibel and intensity, but it’s not just students packing the clubs. The night scene offers plenty for adults of all ages. Published
