Must-See Indie Bands Touring This Fall You Might Not Know About

Isn’t it the worst when you discover a new band that you love and then check to see if they’re playing near you, only to find out you just missed them? Well, we’re not going to let that happen this fall.

Below is a list of some of our favorite underground rockers hitting the road in the U.S. this fall. Listen to them, fall in love with them, become obsessed with them and make sure you don’t miss their epic live sets.

Check out the list below of touring bands and make sure to get your tickets and mark your calendars.

Shannon & The Clams

These guys are a little garage-y, a little ’50s doo-wop and a little surfy. They’ll probably become your new favorite band if you haven’t heard of them yet.

Jeremy & The Clones

A deadly trio from Florida who’ll kill you with their tunes, rather than their hometown’s sewer gators.

Fed to the rules & we hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go You'll never shine if you don't glow
