It's time to go off the beaten path.

Welcome, creatures


Yes, there are still discoveries to be made. There are new, unknown, unheralded bands to see before they blow up and have their songs blasting in every earbud, before they’re headlining every festival and are selling out every venue from Tokyo to Tulsa.

Kick up some dust


There are new songs to hear, in places you’ve never heard them. Songs that will and notes that, played live, will have a different charged energy, that will never be heard in the same way ever again. There’s the food you’ve never had from the chef of that one restaurant you’ve been meaning to try. I mean, you never even knew half these bands and restaurants and venues and artists were even here in the Biggest Little City.

All the things


That’s the spirit of the Off Beat Music Festival. It’s a citywide, multi-venue festival that’s all about discovering the amazing new things being created right here in Reno –  music, food, drink and more. Performances are at a mix of venues from small bars to large theaters, from art galleries to restaurants and even shops, creating a “festival crawl” where you can see a number of bands at different venues around the core of Reno. Go off the beaten path and make some new discoveries.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT - Smokey Brights

Oh my hoodness, these guys freakin' exciting! Their blend of styles, swagger, and dope auras make them a must see of Off Beat 2017. Check out the vidja below then put your best friend in a wagon and pull him/her over to offbeatreno.com to buy wristbands if you haven't yet, you little banana slug.

"Smokey Brights make music that taps into history and stretches out a kind of visionary rock that rolls relentlessly forward while recombining iconic sounds - from funk to Fleetwood Mac, Bowie to Blur, disco to Dire Straits, and splashes of Floyd psychedelia - crafting something urgent, fun, and utterly surprising.
The band’s driving rhythms, lusciously tight harmonies, and swirling guitar lines lay down a sumptuous, expansive 70s landscape that invites the listener to lay back, turn up, and dive deep into the depths of inner space."

"There has never been a shortage of rock and roll bands, but it's safe to say there is a shortage of bands taking a fresh approach to the genre at this point in time. Seattle quintet Smokey Brights, on the other hand, are doing exactly that."
