Support local music! Go to a show at Fox & Goose!

We mostly have local performers here at the Goose, but we are always getting emails from people all over the world asking to come play here. Anyhow, enjoy some local music and a few touring acts once in a blue moon at your favorite pub, because one day live music may just stay at home with the rest of the interneters. January marks forty years of music, food, and beer at Sacramento's first and most important pub. Come join us and the Tattooed Love Dogs on January 16th for a pint, a song, and a pasty to celebrate this great institution! 

Roger Carpio
Roger of Lipstick fame is on the wax at 8pm every Wednesday playing the best British music. Come play some cornhole after 10 and hear why he knows exactly what you need to hear.

Doug C & The Blacklisted, Shelby Cobra & The Mustangs, Ryan Davidson, and The Delta City Ramblers
Why Do Punk Rockers Think They Can Play Country Music? Doug C played in the Descendents and now he's here with his alt-country/rockabilly band and some other rowdy hill-billy types. Delta City Ramblers are fun and local bluegrass/country boys. Come on down to the Goose and have some whiskey... Ya hear?

The Orange Scene and 50-Watt Heavy Double-trouble B-Day Bash!
The Orange Scene is pure girl rock like Joan Jett or Pat Benatar or even Janis Joplin. They are super fun and catchy and fronted by birthday girl #1: Tara Elizabeth. 50-WATT HEAVY is influenced by all genres from Country to Metal and is often compared to the likes of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Wilco, Whiskeytown, and The Replacements. They will rock your face off and it's Joe's lady's b-day too.

Danny Secretion, Kenny Beasley, Brian Hanover, and TBA

Saturday, December 20th
Desario’s sound is reminiscent of ‘90s Britpop and shoegaze, two styles that have long inspired the musicians. More suited to a dark, cavernous club than a raging party, the songs are at once intimate and lonely but always highly melodic and layered.

Friday, December 26th
The Golden Cadillacs
Seriously, this band kills us with amazing songwriting and slick guitars over perfect drums and bass. We can't say enough good things about them. Not only are they so fun to watch, but they are all just super kind and ridiculously talented. Get up close and personal at your Goose.

Saturday, December 27th
Mango & Foat and Drop Dead Red

Mango isn't a Brazilian mango farmer but does electro/acoustic pop music with his lady friend, Foat. Drop Dead Red curses like a sailor, drinks the guys in her band under the table, and will make eyes go teary when she roars the lyrics of classic Beatles tunes.

Wednesday, December 31st
