Old Town isn’t exactly known for its local music scene (That honor usually goes to Downtown Phoenix), but Scottsdale’s latest hot spot, Wasted Grain, is out to change that.
Combined with a low-key, industrial atmosphere, it’s a welcome change to the typical club scene, and WG is packing the talent in. Here’s your day-by-day breakdown for November:
WEDNESDAYS Dubbed “Wired Wednesdays,” this night is expertly designed to keep you motivated through your work week. The music starts at 8 p.m. with rotating bands. In November, Kush Country will take the Wired Wednesday spotlight. Experience the cool Arizona breeze flowing through the venue as they open the garage doors, where guests on the patio partake in outdoor games like Connect 4, darts and bags while listening to the rotating schedule of bands.
SATURDAYS Wasted Grain has live music downstairs every Saturday beginning at 10 p.m. with bands such as Smashed (November 1), Rock Lobster (November 8), The Instant Classics (November 15), Smashed (November 22) and The Chadwick’s (November 29), just to name a few.
SUNDAYS Wasted Grain’s grounds owned Industry Sundays for 19 years, even before Wasted Grain was fully realized. Taking the place of the now-closed Martini Ranch, Wasted Grain carries on the live music and Industry Sunday tradition. Downstairs will opening bands that rotate weekly, ending with the all-time favorite ‘80s cover band that knows how to get the crowd on their feet—MetalHead—performing every Sunday night. Be sure to drop by on November 16, when Tempe’s The Black Moods open.

Every time you walk through the doors it is a different experience.
