Best alternative shows coming to Cleveland in December

The Best Altenative Acts Coming To Cleveland This December

A new month, means a new list of concerts!


A new month means a new list of concerts coming through Cleveland, and it doesn't look as though December is going to disappoint!

Whether you're celebrating Seaway's American vacation with Trophy Eyes or hanging out at the best Snowed In Festival we've ever had (I may be biased), the month of December has some amazing shows coming through Cleveland, and you seriously won't want to miss them!

Without further ado, here are the best shows coming to Cleveland in December!

1. Mahall's


Free Throw, Kayak Jones, Charmer, Deep Sign


The Grievance Club, Biitchseat, Drag Daze


Settle Your Scores, Nominee, Blindside Avenue, As Time Fades


CityCop, Golden God, Wallcreeper, Bare Walls

Author's Pick: This is a tough one, but I think I'd have to choose Free Throw just for the simple fact that this lineup is seriously stacked. Every band on this bill has something special to bring to the stage and you're missing out if you don't attend it.

2. The Beachland Ballroom


Seaway, Trophy Eyes, Microwave, Can't Swim, Hot Mulligan


I See Stars, the Promise Hero

Author's Pick: No offence to any bands in this article, but if you go to any show in December, it's got to be Seaway. This band is one of the best in the scene, and the lineup is truly one of the best I've seen in a long time (though I may be biased, I do love Hot Mulligan and Seaway a lot.) Please, do yourself a favor and go see Seaway.

3. The Agora


Underoath, Dance Gavin Dance, Crown The Empire, The Plot In You


Death Cab For Cutie


Knocked Loose, Knuckle Puck, Harm's Way, Hot Mulligan, Vein, Kublai Khan, Sharptooth, Belmont, Sanction

Author's Pick: This is unfair to all the band's on this list, but Snowed In's lineup is amazing (and slightly confusing) which makes it the one to go to. I mean, Knocked Loose AND Hot Mulligan AND Belmont AND Knuckle Puck on the same bill?! Somebody pinch me, I'm dreaming.

4. The Grog Shop



Author's Pick: Well....there's not really a band to go against Bayside here, and that's totally fine because Bayside is an amazing band and they're playing a full set of acoustic songs. There's sure to be some deep cuts and crowd favorites done at this show, so you definitely won't want to miss it!

    13 Reasons Why I'm A Concert Junkie, Loud And Proud

    Live music is the best music, don't @ me.


    I love going to concerts, there's something so special about the adrenaline you feel before, during and after a concert. Starting with the Jonas Brothers in 2009, I've always loved going to see some of my favorite artists live. There's just something about the energy of being in a jam-packed arena, surrounded by fans, listening to your favorite artist.

    Here are 13 reasons why I'm a concert junkie.

    1. The anticipation leading up to the concert

    Weeks ahead of time you are listening to that artist on replay, preparing yourself for the night of your life.

    2. Attending the concert with someone who shares the same joy as you

    When you both look at each other in the midst of the craziness and smile, knowing you both are living your best life.

    3. The road trip to the concert venue

    No matter the distance you drive, it's always so worth it because the drive is filled with so much excitement and eagerness.

    4. The lights

    For me, the lights can totally set the mood for the entire show. The colorful, flashing lights can build so much suspense and positive energy to each and every moment.

    5. Being in the same vicinity as your favorite artist

    To actually think that you were sharing the same room with someone you admire so much is amazing to think about.

    6. Getting to meet other fans

    Hearing stories of how an artist's music has brought you together and created friendships is something special.

    7.  The way you get lost in the music

    Having every lyric memorized and singing alongside hundreds of people PLUS your favorite artist? It's an unforgettable memory.

    8. The energy is unable to be matched

    Everyone is just as hype as you are; yelling in excitement, smiling from ear to ear, and dancing to each song.

    9. The feeling when your favorite song comes on

    The moment in the concert when the beginning beats of your favorite song starts and your face lights up.

    10. Losing your voice because you cheered so excessively 

    Who cares if your voice gets lost in the crowd? I'm always cheering loud and proud (and maybe a little obnoxiously.)

    11. The goosebumps

    If you don't get goosebumps when your favorite artist is belting out the lyrics to their most powerful song then there's something wrong. (Sorry, I don't make the rules.)

    12. The way your ears ring after the show ends

    Listening to music at the highest volume possible, surrounded by hundreds of screaming fans can be a little bit overwhelming for your poor eardrums but it's totally worth it.

    13. The lasting impression you have afterwards

    The memories, the videos you captured while singing along to your favorite songs, and the selfies you took while cheesing too hard. The songs performed at the concert are forever changed for you; every time you listen to that artist you remember how you felt while hearing the song live and LOVING it.
