Sacramento’s live music scene still has a long way to grow in terms of its local talent...Although Sacramento is experiencing unprecedented growth in its music scene, much of the success is for top, national performers. Due in part to a lack of small venues, this city’s local and regional artists are in threat of being left behind. Big ticket sale platforms often exclude the few small-scale venues that do exist.
Although this preference for national music is disheartening to some, listeners who love familiar, mainstream sounds will love Sacramento. Ace of Spades pulls in only touring acts. Harlow and Holy Diver only feature local music at the demand of touring artists. Even niche venues such as Goldfield only open its stage to local bands during set times of year, such as during The Beautiful Death tour for post-hardcore bands in Sacramento that occurs once annually.
What does this mean for listeners? Sacramento is not a place that is introducing the world to new, great music. However, this city is proving platforms for national stars and regional favorites at a palatable price. As DIY spaces slowly close down, succumbing to threats related to funding and upkeep, a new type of music model is taking over Sacramento. Do not forget to get some tickets to your favorite shows, soon to see how good or how bad these shifts really are.
