Concert and Events

At Armadillo we are constantly booking bands to play in-store shows. We host a wide variety of musicians from local solo singer/songwriters to more well known bands such as the great Typhoon (they have eleven members!). We try to list all of our upcoming shows here as well as a few highlights of some past in-stores. If interested in playing at Armadillo Music please feel free to send us an email at

In addition to hosting our own shows, we are happy to be supporters of the many local live music events that happen in our town. From events like the Davis Music festival, Thursday Live!, Davis Live Music Collective shows, and the plethora of live free shows at the local bars, we try and keep you up to date on all of them!

Ocean Party In- Store Show- Saturday, March 25th, 2017

These Australians showed up to haunt our Halloween party a couple of years ago, and now stateside they want to pick up where they left off. Playing an infectious brand of sparkling pop/rock, it won’t be long before songs get stuck inside your head, but can’t exactly recall where they came from, as if from a sugarplum dream. They rock, and your socks will be knocked off. It’s all going down on Saturday, March 25th, 2017 at 6:30pm. As always, bring some drinks and a friend, or some friends and a drink. We’re all about moderation, well, it’s okay in some instances.

Chelsea Drugstore In- Store Show – Saturday, April 18th, 2017

We’re happy to have this young band rock our stage on Saturday, April 8th @ 6:30pm. These guys play an alternative-rock/indie mashup that would make a band like The Strokes swoon. Don’t be late!

Kendall Frisoli In-Store Show- Saturday, April 15th, 2017

Singer, Songwriter, acoustic alternative style with a smooth vibe. My goals for music are to continue playing for my expressive outlet and stress release and reach out to my community with music any way I can. I hope to continue open mics and gigs throughout my graduate school and life beyond. I have an upcoming gap year and plan to perform and record a bunch of music. I will be playing at Picnic Day April 22nd at 2:30 at the ARC stage. You can find me at Sophia’s Thai kitchen, open mics on campus at UC Davis, in Winters at steady eddy’s or Berryessa Gap, or in Sacramento.

Come on out, bring your friends, on Saturday, April 15th @ 6:30pm!
