Well, it looks as if live music has now truly returned, after a fashion. Social distancing remains in effect, but the warmer weather opens up opportunities to enjoy live music in (relative) safety. For this welcome-back edition of 30 Days Out, I’m focusing on all local acts.
Artist: Ashley Heath and Her Heathens
Venue: The Orange Peel
Date: Saturday, April 15, 8 p.m.
Ashley Heath is a well-deserved darling of the local scene. Like many full-time musicians, she’s struggled to get through this last year. She deserves whatever success comes her way. Read more about her back story here.
Artist: Day & Dream
Venue: Sly Grog Lounge
Date: Friday, April 23, 7 p.m.
I’m always up for a bit of the old shoegaze / indie/ dream pop. If you are too, this duo is just the ticket.

These guys are superb musicians, and their music draws from many genres. They’ve just finished making their latest release. The show is in celebration of their new EP. Read about their previous release here (scroll down).
