The fall season brings many of our favorite things: brightly colored leaves, cozy sweaters, and perhaps most importantly, indoor concert season. There seems to be a more intimate feeling, you don’t have to worry about getting rained on, and the cool, crisp weather outside makes the vibe for enjoying music inside just right.
Here’s our list of concerts to check out this fall season to make your autumn a little bit more musical.
1. Blue October at Bogart’s
You most likely know Blue October for its massive hits “Hate Me” and “Into the Ocean.” The alternative rock band’s 2018 album, I Hope You’re Happy, was released to rave reviews, indicating a new era for the group. Catch them live at Bogart’s Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.).
2. Ingrid Michaelson at the Madison Theater
We are cheating a bit with this one. Yes, the concert is across the river, but we had to include Ingrid Michaelson on this list. The 39-year-old singer-songwriter has been a staple of the music industry since a single on her second album, “The Way I Am,” topped the charts in 2006. Michaelson released her ninth studio album in June 2019 (which is inspired by the hit Netflix show Stranger Things). (Yes, really.) You will not want to miss Michaelson at the Madison Theater on Oct. 20 at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.).
3. Celine Dion at U.S. Bank Arena
Does Celine Dion need an explanation? We don’t think so, but we will give you a little background anyway. The 51-year-old Canadian singer will stop by U.S. Bank Arena Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) as a part of her Courage World Tour. As one of the best and most widely renowned singers in history, these tickets are sure to go quickly, so make to sure to get online right now and get your tickets before it’s too late.
4. Elvis Costello & The Imposters at Taft Theatre
Having influenced Green Day, Prince, and Foo Fighters, Elvis Costello is a certified legend in the music industry. Lucky for us, the 65-year-old musician and his band The Imposters will visit Taft Theatre Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.). After a summer-long tour with Blondie, Elvis Costello & The Imposters will now be the sole headliner for the rest of their tour.
5. Chris Lane (Bogart’s, Corryville)
This 34-year-old crooner made a name for himself in the country music world, but his recent engagement to Bachelor alum, Lauren Bushnell has brought his name to the forefront of media outlets nationwide. But don’t get it twisted: Lane is a talent in his own right. His singles, “I Don’t Know About You” and “Take Back Home Girl” (feat. Tori Kelly) have spent time at the top of the country charts. Check him out for yourself at Bogart’s Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. (doors open at 7 p.m.).
